Virginia Key Beach Park

Learn about an important piece of Miami’s Civil Rights history and see southern Florida at its most beautiful in this remarkable barrier island.

In 1945, Virginia Key Beach Park was established as Miami’s “Colored Only Beach.” With its sandy beaches and lively seaside scene, it quickly became a hub for tourists and local residents. After being closed for several decades, the 82-acre (33-hectare) beachfront park reopened in 2008 following a major restoration effort. Today, enjoy sun and sand as you celebrate the diverse communities that shaped Miami.

Admire Virginia Key Beach Park’s pristine sandy beaches, slender palm trees and lush vegetation. It is also home to one of the largest mangrove wetlands in the state. The park has a variety of environmental initiatives underway to ensure that the area’s natural beauty remains unspoiled.

Explore historic landmarks such as the bathhouse, concession stand, carousel, train tracks and picnic pavilions. They have all been renovated and restored to their vintage splendor.

Get snacks and refreshments from the vending machines located throughout the park. Stop at the Historic Concession Stand Building for seasonal food and beverage options. Grill on one of the barbecue stations located throughout the park or enjoy a picnic on the beach.

Ride along the 4.1-mile (6.6-kilometer) bike trail that winds through the park. Built entirely by volunteers, the trail offers bikers of all levels the opportunity to explore the park’s stunning natural scenery.

Stop at the Virginia Key Outdoor Center to outfit yourself for a day at the beach. Rent kayaks, paddleboards, mountain bikes and other equipment. Take a yoga or stand-up paddleboarding lesson.

Visit the park 7 days a week except for Thanksgiving and Christmas Day. Note that the park closes at sunset. There is an entry fee per vehicle.

Virginia Key Beach Park is located on Key Biscayne off the Rickenbacker Causeway. Although it may feel like an isolated enclave, the rest of Miami is easily accessible. By car, reach downtown in 15 minutes and South Beach in 30 minutes from the park.
