This autonomous municipality of Sunny Isles
is much more friendly to beach-goers, being that its principal
income is from visitors. 2.7 miles of beachfront. It is
probably somewhat more family oriented than Miami beach.
This beach has been renourished. The City is experiencing
a major redevelopment renaissance on the east side of Collins
Avenue (A1A), the main thoroughfare. There is constant construction
on the west (beach) side, as the antique two and three story
mom and pop motels are replaced by high-rise condominiums.The
sand seems softer here than further south, probably due
to the fact that it was snitched (under protest) from a
sand bank facing Golden Beach. The highlight of the beach
is the wonderful fishing pier beside the Newport
The Newport Fishing Pier, built in 1936, is ½ mile-long,
designated a historic site in 1982, has long been a popular
destination for fishing enthusiasts and sightseers. For accommodations, click here.
