About
This Florida beach is one of the state's most popular clothing-optional beaches. But even if you prefer to stay covered up, this beach has something for everyone—calm waves and clear waters perfect for swimming, and sun loungers, umbrellas, and cabanas for rent. Feeling hungry? Check out the little food truck for grilled foods, sandwiches, salads, and drinks. The park can get busy on weekends, so visit on weekdays if you want fewer crowds. Want to arrive in style? Get to the beach on a yacht tour, or get an aerial view of the beach from a helicopter ride. – Tripadvisor

    Any part of Haulover Beach is fun!
    Haulover Beach is 1.5 miles long, the most famous part is the northern .5 mile clothing optional (CO) area, which is clearly marked. I went to both the CO area as well as the south tip at the Haulover Inlet. Both were equally good in their own way. I went nude (not my first time) at the CO beach and enjoyed walking the mostly clean sand, swimming in the warm water, and meeting some friendly people. If you even think you want to see/try a nude beach, try this one. Don’t take pictures of people without permission, don’t gawk, and don’t make fun of anyone. At the Inlet area, I watched the many boats go in and out of the bay area, met people, and swam. Finding a parking space could be difficult when it’s busy, but I got there early enough. You MUST use the PaybyPhone app to pay for your parking and that’s ridiculous. You should be able to pay at a kiosk with cash or a debit/credit card like you would at a convenience store. The address to use for the CO beach parking lot is 15600 Collins Avenue. If you use the 10800 Collins Ave address you’ll end up .5 miles south. I loved my time at any part of Haulover and highly recommend it.

    It was a clean beach. It had easy access and parking across the highway (north parking lot) for only $10. We rented chairs and canopy. The only issue was a man lingering by the storage box for the umbrellas and masturbating.

    Great even after 30 years
    Had 2 days here, driving down from St Augustine because the weather looked really nice with temps in the 80s in January! First day at HBP we stopped right at the first entrance and came out to the lovely beach that I had not seen since the 90s with mostly young men around so the wife and I walked just a bit to the right and plopped down for a few hours---pleasant but not our kind of music. The next day we walked a bit further to the right, getting there early enough to get a front row seat amongst a few other couples like us. Really pleasant spot and by the time we left at about noon, we were surrounded with similar folks having fun au naturel. Wish we had this in St A!

    Second Trip as Good as The First
    In the Miami area we decided to return to Haulover for a few days. Our experience was as good as our first. The beach was clean with no seaweed this time. The food truck continues to serve very good casual food at reasonable prices. The weather was comfortable for early February. Clothing optional area is available for those who like an all over tan. People are respectful and friendly. Great public beach with restroom and showers available to rinse off at the end of the day. Reasonable and accessible parking. Will continue to return when in the Maimi area.

    Fantastic Dog Beach!
    Awesome dog beach for your fur baby! Lots of room and friendly dogs. Easy parking and dog hose right outside. Came here on a Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in late Feb - Mar. It got busier each day but totally manageable and enjoyable. I wish Miami Beach had a few more of these!

    Haulover Beach
    I visited March 2023. Haulover Beach is about a 20 minutes drive from Turnberry Resort in Aventura where I vacationed. During my visit, there were only a few family beach goers. It is spacious with clean picnic family areas throughout and a large paid parking lot. Check their website for additional information before your visit.

    Great yet again
    Not my first review of Haulover. Or my second. Or my third. Always raves. And this one is no different. Got a couple chances to go this month. First day - great weather. Most people seemed to be regulars... the right vibe of comfortable being naked. Average age was probably 50+. Second day - a bit breezy. More younger and inexperienced (with public nudity) people, but good vibe. I did find that there's a station to rinse off that's accessible from the CO side. I don't know if this is new, but it's very convenient. Previously, you had to put on a suit to go shower (and get the suit wet). Also, there is some serious road construction affecting access to the parking lots. It looks like it will be great when it's done, but it's not done. Finally, note the parking is Pay by phone now. No little booth on entry.

    Beach.
    Great beach, parking a pain. Bring an umbrella. Also lots of water. Make it a picnic of sorts. All day worth the price of parking. Lots of construction in parking lots. Signage in needs improvement.

This is a review of the c/o side.
Really want to give this beach another circle but the creepers bothered me during our visits. This is not our first time to c/o as we frequent c/o resorts and beaches. This is the first time however we've seen men masturbating! We visited this beach four times and in those four times caught three different men masturbating! One actually positioned his chair so his angle was where he could see between this woman's legs. I would have liked to report it but wasn't sure who to report it to. The beach wasn't patrolled.
On several occasions we saw clothed men with cellphones out. Not sure if they were taking pictures, but one person we saw with a cell phone was behind the beach chair rental storage holding his cellphone up.
Seaweed was very bad the first two days. Clumps of it were in the water. Was only able to swim at this beach twice. Water was warm but waves were rough.

We recently spent a few days in Florida visiting from Arizona. My Husband and I and are 8 year old son spent a few days at Haulover. a few other reviews had bad things to say about this beach. But we thought it was great. Our Son who wasn't sure if he wanted to participate in being nude, soon felt comfortable enough to shed his clothes, And even found a few other children to play with on the beach. He now says he wished all beaches were nude beaches. Only thing we wished was that there was bathroom facility closer by. But overall great beach, and we will likely return here with our son the next time we are in Florida

Very nice beach. Great atmosphere. Clothing is optional but other than that was very much like any other beach.. Spent 2 days here. Beach was very busy both days. Large mix of ages. Lots of older couples, younger couples, good number of singles and saw around 10 kids from around toddler to maybe 10 with there parents. It was nice to see that at least a few families come.

Visited the CO beach several times this week with my wife. If we lived closer we would be here all the time. My compliments to the county and its people for facilitating this glorious experience.

Start with parking. It is nearby and there is lots of it. Six dollars for all day. A bargain. Especially when considering the price of admission: free. Chair/umbrella/cabana rentals are very reasonable. But those who wish to bring their own are welcome to do that. The vendors are exceptionally polite and helpful explaining who mostly patronizes which section of the beach. It’s not that there are strict rules and there is a lot of bleed over. We visited all sections during the week and always felt welcome and comfortable wherever we went.

Which is the greatest thing about the place. All types, colors, orientations, etc. are enjoying it together. Everyone gets along and divisiveness is checked at the gate. It would appear that being naked is the great equalizer.

Side note: the creepers are there as other reviewers have mentioned. Some think they are being clever but it’s obvious. I figure, who cares. We knew people would see us naked. Some of them just want to see naked and not be naked. I kinda feel sorry for them.

Many naturist beaches tend to be isolated and inaccessible. That isn't true for Haulover. Situated on Collins Avenue to the north of Miami it has excellent parking and public transport links (the 120 and 119 metrobuses stop at the beach).
In contrast to Sunny Isles beach, which it is next to, it isn't blighted by high rise buildings but retains a natural setting.
We visited to experience the naturist section of the beach.
Toilet and shower facilities are available, although you need to be clothed to visit the restroom.
Food is available from a food van which has a wide selection of food and drink.
Lifeguards oversee the beach for the safety of the patrons.
Some of the negatives are as follows:
- The sea can be very rough but there are warnings via the use of flags on the lifeguard huts.
- There is a lot of seaweed in the sea.
- Rental of sunbeds ($20) and umbrellas ($25) is very expensive.
A great place for naturists to visit which loses a star for the cost of renting beds and umbrellas.

Great beach. Clean, SAFE, greet sand and water, and a great vibe. New to the area, gf and I made a beeline for here. Far left tends to be more gay while more couples on the right. Being a regular to the beach I’ve met a lot of locals both gay and straight. Really cool people, non judgmental and are all there to enjoy the lifestyle.

Highly recommend this beach. It’s well patrolled, no weird gawkers or any lewd activities. Just a fun, quiet and great escape from the Miami crazy hustle bustle. Def a must go if you’re local or visitor. Just wear a smile that’s all!

Love the large beach and reasonable parking fees unlike most other beaches. Hours are listed 8 am to 6:30, but before 5:30 security is telling people to leave. Perhaps set better expectations on hours listed. Also bathrooms are already locked well before warning. Keep bathrooms open until people are off beach. I'm sure many people like myself think they can use a bathroom on the way out before driving off.

After visiting the nude beaches in CA for most of our lives, my wife and I decided to check out Haulover while we were in the Miami area for work. Like most nude beaches, there were more single guys and very few women. We were there in February and the weather was perfect, about 80 every day and humidity this time of year which was nice. The beach was clean and the water a little chilly but again this was the winter time. People who live in CA don't tend to visit Florida but we are glad we checked this nude beach off of our list. One and done.

Visiting the Miami area and we decided to spend a few days at the beach. Great public beach which includes both a textile and clothing optional area. Ample parking, restroom facilities and easy access to the beach from the parking lot. Beach lounges and umbrellas available to rent, but a bit on the expensive side - $65 for two lounges and an umbrella. A food truck is located right on the beach offering reasonable priced food and refreshments. The 3 days we were there, there was lots of seaweed in the water. The beach was never super crowded. For those that are inclined, the clothing optional area starts at Lifeguard tower 12/13 and continues through tower 15. People were friendly and respectful. Overall, an enjoyable experience and nice time on the beach. Definitely will return.
