South Pointe Park

South Beach

The very southern tip of Miami Beach has been converted into a lovely park, replete with manicured grass for lounging; a beach; views over a remarkably teal and fresh ocean; a restaurant; a refreshment stand; a tiny waterpark for kids; warm, scrubbed-stone walkways; and lots of folks who want to enjoy the great weather and views sans the South Beach strutting.
