Wondering what to do in Miami? Have you ever heard of Hobie Beach? It is known for being the perfect beach for Windsurfing and pet lovers.
Hobie Beach is just by the Rickenbacker Causeway, just before you get to Key Biscayne Island. It will cost you $2.25 to cross the causeway and you only pay once when entering Key Biscayne. The beautiful view itself is already worth the price.
The place is known as Key Biscayne Dog Beach, Doggie Beach or Windsurfer Beach, since it is very popular among windsurfer addicts and also one of the few beaches where dogs are allowed. It has a privileged location, between Brickell, Downtown and Key Biscayne offering amazing views of Miami’s Skyline.
What to do?
With its shallow waters, it is the perfect and safe place to come with your four legged buddy. Although they must be on a leash, doggies and their owners can enjoy scampering in the water and have a fun day in the sun. Don’t forget to brig fresh and drinking water for your pet! The salty water makes them really thirsty.
This is not your typical beach with wide white sand beaches , but it makes up in the action department.
The beach is also known by the name Windsurfer Beach, being considered the best place to windsurf in Miami. Visitors can take windsurf lessons and learn more about this exciting sport.
If you are not into Windsurf you could also paddle on a kayak with fantastic views from skyscrapers to historical mansions to mangrove estuaries. Here you’ll find some of the most striking views of the Miami skyline you could possibly get.
The rentals are conveniently located along the beach, where you’ll find beach chair and umbrella rentals as well as watersports rentals such as SUP Paddleboards, single or double Kayaks, Quad Water Bikes and, of course, Windsurfer rentals and instruction.
Facilities have been recently re-done and you’ll find a proper parking lot with plenty of spaces, bathroom and shower facilities and security patrolling the area.
