Default Miami child friendly beach?

Is there any beaches you can recommend near South Beach that are cool to take a 4 year old to the day before our cruise? We are staying right by the Port of Miami. Thanks

Why not South Beach? Other than Key Biscayne, they have the nicest beach in the greater Miami area.

The South Point Park area will have more families during the week. Otherwise, anywhere is fine. You may have more beach rentals further north of Lummus Park.

I concur; anywhere in South Beach. I also like the beach at the south point. But, wherever you decide to go, I think all beaches are kid friendly. I grew up at the beach, and it's a no-brainer for me that kids and the beach go together. Have fun on your trip.

Thanks. I looked up South Pointe and that looks great. We are going to do that and have a meal at that restaurants there outside hopefully. I can't wait! Haven't been to South Beach I'm over ten years.

Smith & Wollensky is right there at South Point but a walk from the beach. Nikki Beach is on the beach but a little walk up from South Point. Monty's is on the back side.

Smith & Wollensky and Nikki Beach are $$$$.
