Our Best Secluded Spots!
Alice Wainwright Park
2845 Brickell Ave, Miami, FL 33129
This 28-acre waterfront park and nature preserve located in northern Coconut Grove is named after Alice C. Wainwright, the first female elected to serve on the City of Miami Commission. This secluded park is the ideal spot to meditate, go for a little scenic stroll, or even a quiet family picnic. The park's natural features make it one of Coconut Grove's most unique coastal parks. The lower area shows an exposed limestone outcrop of the Miami Rock Ridge, and in the northeast sits one of the remnants of Brickell Hammock, an expanse of tropical hardwood hammock that once stretched from the Miami River to North Grove.
All America Park
6820 SW 64th Ave, South Miami, FL 33143
A small park hidden in 64th Avenue, this quaint spot is located in a quiet neighborhood. With beautiful native trees, picnic tables, rock seating and open green space, it's perfect for a little rest and relaxation, a small family picnic and even some quiet time to unplug.
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
1200 S Crandon Blvd, Key Biscayne, FL 33149
The main feature of this park is of course the historic Cape Florida lighthouse, which offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay. Located on the barrier island of Key Biscayne, the park also has a hardwood hammock with a canopy of sea grapes, strangler figs, and gumbo limbo, as well as a small museum in the lighthouse keepers cottage. Come around this little oasis and soak in a little sun on the expanse of beach, or go for a relaxing fishing trip.
Historic Virginia Key Beach Park
4020 Virginia Beach Dr, Miami, FL 33149
This small beach off the Rickenbacker Causeway is a great spot to bring your little ones because of its shallow waters, antique carousel, and playground. Reopened to the public in 2008 after it had fallen into disrepair and closed since the 1980's, this is a great beach to avoid the crowds since this spot is not often visited. You can go on a picnic, do a little mountain biking, or go for a little hike.
6747 Crandon Blvd, Key Biscayne, FL 33149
located on the north side of Key Biscayne, this historic park housed Miami's first zoo, the Crandon Park Zoo, which has been converted into a botanical garden since a hurricane in 1965 drowned over 200 animals and the death of more in a panic. The garden has free roaming, iguanas, cats, rabbits, turtles, and peacocks as well as interesting artwork on the former enclosures. You can come around this small garden and enjoy a book, or just sit around to meditate and enjoy the scenery and the beauty of nature around you.
