Whether you're here to soak up the sun on one of Florida's finest beaches or ride the waves that made this the surfing hotspot of the East Coast, you'll find that this is an exciting place to spend your vacation. You can find quiet seclusion or fast-paced excitement here, whether it's at the Speedway, on the beach or at one of the area's many points of interest. If you dream of riding the waves, you've come to the right place. The smooth sand and Atlantic surf combine to make this one of the premier surfing spots on the East Coast. In addition to surfing, you'll find a host of water activities including jet skiing, windsurfing, boating, river cruises, and parasailing. Try one of the scenic boat rides available in the area. The Atlantic Ocean and the Halifax River provide anglers with a variety of fishing opportunities year-round. The excitement continues on the shore, which spans nearly 23 miles (37 km) and up to 500 feet in width, and the sand gently slopes to the water where tides and wave action have packed it hard. Driving is actually permitted in certain areas on the beaches.
Virginia Key Beach. It's across from the Miami Seaquarium, off Rickenbaker Causeway. Instead of making a right at the Seaquarium, make a left at the traffic light just before the Seaquarium. If you donot pay attention you will miss the entrance. There is a toll, $2.00 per car. Drive two miles to the end of the road to the 'Point' This is a very scenic and secluded beach, very windy, the sail boarders use it a lot. In any given day you will run into professional models being photographed. Public bathrooms and changing rooms are available. If you feel adventorous, instead of taking the rigth turn towards the point continue on the left for a quarter mile and hang out with the locals at the shrimp bar. Have a beer, and play bocci ball with motorcycle riders and local fishermen. Not pretty but very picturesque and you will certanly not find that place in a tourist travel book.
