Bal Harbour Beach is a soothing and quiet beach. Neighbor of Surfside, it comes across as serene paradise in comparison to the electrifying South Beach.
Its mile of coastline is traversed by a white-sand promenade ideal for open-air sports while the northernmost end of Bal Harbour’s beach boasts a sea wall pier that is the delight of fishers and onlookers. Although it is a public beach, it lacks facilities or services for visitors, therefore is advisable to go prepared so that your time there is comfortable.
On 102nd Street, under the bridge connectin Bal Harbour to Sunny Isles Beach, there is a small public parking that tends to fill up, this is why coming early must be included in your beach schedule in this area.
