This is a very relaxing, quiet place to visit especially on a weekday. The beach is clean with white sand. It's nice to just bring a picnic basket, read a book and just enjoy the beauty of nature.

This is a great park that offers places to kayak, swim at a beach, walk along the bay and sit and enjoy the gorgeous views. We went to see the sunset. Highly recommend this as a place to visit in Miami. You can see the sunset from one side and then see the skyline of Miami from the other.

Matheson Hammock Park is just delightful! Lovely beach area with lifeguards and picnic tables all around. You can visit the Red Fish Grill for a meal, or bring your own picnic like we did. The kids explored on the rocks over-looking the water. A must see!

Lots of trails. Even had Hobbie kayaks and kite surfing for rent. Some areas allowed grilling and great for BBQ under a tree with the ocean view. There was a wedding at the the natural ocean pool. Beautiful place to go if you don't want to go in the water, not south beach ocean but white nice sand for tanning.

Perfect to bring kids to, great for walking and good biking areas. You get a beautiful view of the miami skyline and wind surfers from the parking lot.

It cost $7 to enter and they were all out of maps, so we had no idea where to find trails or whatever else might be available. We did find the main parking area where there was a beach and a beautiful view of downtown Miami.

We visited the area last week and were pleasantly surprised. It's situated in a little quiet cove, off the beaten path, perfect for a date, family outing, or gathering of friends. We saw all of the aforementioned and everyone seemed so relaxed. Folks were picnicking, para surfing/sailing, jogging, swimming, biking and just enjoying the warm sun and refreshing breeze. You...

I come to this park for the beach which is basically a large tidal pool that fills with water from the ocean.. when you look at the water it is somewhat dark and dirty looking but it is clean and basically refreshed each day with ocean water that comes in via the channel and pipes they have... there is one...

I go to this park with my husband. We bike from home and go around the park. It has a nice view but I don't swim there because the water looks dirty.

Beautiful place to see the sunset ! Today was super moon and the view was incredible ! Unfortunately the restaurant was fully booked with reservations; will reserve in advance next time for the whole experience.
