Miami Beach Boardwalk

Miami-Dade County Biking

Miami Beach Boardwalk - Tour the Art Deco district and enjoy quirky South Beach by bike! With views of the ocean and of the classic South Beach hotels, condos, galleries and restaurants (plus great people-watching), this is a popular Miami destination for walking, jogging, biking. The original wooden Miami Beach Boardwalk ran from 23rd to 46th Sts., and later a paved path (the Promenade) was added extending it south to 5th St. Now continuing to MacArthur Causeway, it currently totals about 5 miles including both boardwalk and Promenade. Eventually more will be paved and extend north to total 10 miles. Parking can be challenging and is fee-based (we parked at South Pointe Park). Many bike stations for bike sharing are available. Our only "complaint" is while the paved path is more bikeable and with many cut-overs to the beach, the beach view is often shut off by vegetation. (Detailed map and photos below.)

Biking on Miami Beach Boardwalk/Promenade

MacArthur Causeway to South Pointe Park to 5th Street - From MacArthur Causeway, past the marina to South Point Park. The park has parking, walking and biking paths, and a pier. The pier marks the beginning of Miami Beach, and from here the paver path follows the beach.


5th St. to 15th St. - This section runs along popular Lummus Park and its many facilities including restrooms and showers, playgrounds, volleyball, playing fields, outdoor gym,.and beach. The Promenade continues between Ocean Drive and the beach, but here is a wider buffer to the beach and limited views though there are multiple access points. Good views, though, of Ocean Drive and its classic hotels and condos, and many restaurants, with easy access from the Promenade. At the Lummus Park beach is a portion of the original Beach Walk, for walking and biking on the sand.


15th St. to 29th St. - Ocean Drive ends at 15th St. and the Promenade continues behind hotels and businesses, again often buffered from a beach view. Bike rental stations are available. At 24th St., bikes are not allowed on the Boardwalk but a path has been built a block over and links back to the Promenade at 29th St.


From 29th-46th Sts. a few sections are paved (29th-30th Sts., 32nd to 36th, and at Indian Beach Park), but the remainder of the Boardwalk is closed to biking pending future construction. Past 46th St. the path will continue to 96th St. (Bal Harbour), with some sections now completed. The extended path has been dubbed the Miami Beach Walk as it will no longer consist of "boardwalks." We'll keep track for future updates.

Trivia footnote.: The sidewalk design is inspired by Brazilian landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx's oceanfront walk along Copacabana Beach near Rio de Janeiro.
