Haulover Beach

Haulover Beach Park is a 1.4 mile-long Miami-Dade County beachfront park with a 0.4 mile designated clothing-optional area that was established by South Florida Free Beaches July 14, 1991. Parking is $6 per car. Open approximately from sunrise to sunset.
Please note that on weekdays the direct entrance to the north parking lot is usually closed, but the lot can be accessed thru the boat ramp entrance immediately south. If the north lot is full, go to lot #1.

"Haulover", the name...

Before a storm in the early 20th century opened Baker's Cut to the south of the park, this area was the easiest place to haul boats over between the Atlantic and the Intracoastal Waterway.
