Clothing-optional Haulover has long been a favorite of laissez-faire residents and vacationers, but there's more to do here than nude sunbathing. You can fly kites, go charter fishing and even play volleyball at this shore located just north of Bal Harbour. And you don't have to strip to your birthday suit to enjoy this area, as there are also designated sections for swimsuit-clad beach bathing (the northern area of the beach is where you'll find nude sunbathers).

Most travelers said they enjoyed their time at Haulover Beach, noting that it's a far more laid-back option than the busier South Beach. Some recent travelers expressed surprise at how friendly the people at the beach were, whether clothed or unclothed. If you don't bring your own gear, plan to part with at least $15 to $25 for beach and chair rental, according to past visitors.

Haulover Beach Park is open every day from sunrise to sunset. Parking in nearby lots costs $5 to $7 depending on the day (weekdays are cheaper). Bus Nos. 119 and 120 have stops near the beach, but driving or taking a cab will be much quicker. For additional information and answers to frequently asked questions, visit the beach's website.

#1 South Beach

With nicknames like "America's Riviera" and the "Art Deco Playground," it's no wonder so many people flock to South Beach. Travelers see South Beach not only as one of the best vacation areas in Florida, but as one of the best in the country. Popular perception has somewhat pigeonholed the area as being reserved exclusively for the young and beautiful and 24-hour partiers, but that's not necessarily the case. The truth is that South Beach welcomes anyone looking for pristine sand, amazing food and yes, a buzzing nightlife.
