Located at the southernmost tip of Miami Beach, South Pointe is a 17-acre park that features walking paths, grassy knolls and sweeping views of the ocean. The area also has a small water park, ideal for families to cool off, and a dog park for those with pets. There’s plenty of seating throughout the park (travelers say it’s a great spot to sit and watch the cruise ships come and go) and there are several art and light sculptures throughout. The South Pointe Pier juts out into the Atlantic Ocean and is a popular place to fish. After undergoing a $4.8 million renovation in 2014, the 450-foot-long pier now offers stations for cutting bait and washing fish, recycling bins for fishing line and more seating for additional vantage points of the ocean.
Overall, recent travelers said a stroll through this park and along the pier is enjoyable, with many noting they loved watching both cruise ships and smaller yachts come and go. Visitors suggest renting bikes to get here and bike through the park, as there’s limited parking available. They also say it makes for a nice way to see the area and that there are two bike-share stations at either end of the park where you can dock – and pick up – bikes. Families also say South Pointe Park, with its grassy areas and playground, is a great spot for a picnic with kids.
