Haulover Beach Park

In just a 1.4-mile stretch, you'll find pristine white sand, kites, dog-friendly areas, and the option to swim and sunbathe in the nude. You won't find any tan lines in the northern section (between lifeguard towers 12 and 16) of the self-proclaimed "top clothing-optional beach in the United States." As you head south to the dog section (between lifeguard towers 2 and 3), brace yourself for cute overload. From 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the area is a pup playground, adding wet and sloppy kisses to your beach itinerary. Let your four-legged friends frolic in surf, cool off in style, and play at the Bark Park, open 8 a.m. to sunset.
