Miami Beach’s Backyard is Finally Reopening!



Miami Beach’s backyard is finally reopening after a 12-week closure. Starting tomorrow, residents and visitors can once again enjoy our seven mile stretch of beautiful sun and sand. Beaches will be open daily from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. with the following COVID-19 safety measures in place:

  • Facial coverings must always be readily available and are required for use in bathrooms, at concessions or when social distancing cannot be achieved (except for members of the same household)

  • Social distancing will be enforced and groups of 10 or more are prohibited

  • No use of exercise equipment or playgrounds; no shared equipment, organized activities, sports or classes; no special events or group picnics

  • No fishing, pets on the beach, floats, tents/canopies nor coolers 

  • Visit www.miamibeachfl.gov/reopening/beaches/ for additional details 

Over 100 social distancing ambassadors will be deployed on the beach daily for the next few weeks to ensure patrons are following the aforementioned measures. The city has also partnered with several local, environmental non-profits to take a creative approach in spreading the message of keeping the beaches clean.


You'll spot our environmental crusaders from Clean Miami Beach, Debris Free Oceans, Surfrider Foundation and VolunteerCleanup.org as they'll be walking the beach to remind all beachgoers to respect the sand and environment.
