Beach Scene

Surfside Beach is another small autonomous seaside town stretching from 96th. Street down to 87th. Terrace. Surfside has about a mile of public beach that will rival any beach in the world. Surfside's beaches are peaceful, clean, pleasant, safe, and free of commercial intrusion. This is a much more family friendly area and her neighbour to the north, and there are many streets that have access to the beach. The town was incorporated in 1935 by 35 members of the Surf Club, virtually the only building located on the beach at that time. There are very strict zoning laws that keep the character of the community of mainly single family homes and small apartment buildings. Rejuvenated hotels and new luxury condominiums line the ocean and Collins Avenue, but Harding Avenue, one block inland, retains the feel of an old-style main street with small shops and bistros to welcome strollers.The town community centre is on 91st. Street, but is for residents and their guests only, though you can use the beach in front of the building. The beach ends at 87th. Terrace, at the striking Eighty Seven Park residences.

Here is a map of the area.
