10 Trails, Bikes And Beaches Off Miami's Party Circuit


By Andrew Belonsky

Ten of our favorite places to get back to nature near South Beach.

Back in town, and very much on the beaten path, check out the essential viewing at 12th Street Beach, the main LGBT spot on South Beach.

If that seems too overwhelming, stroll about 20 minutes north to Haulover Beach, a less crowded — and more clothing optional — spot where the local gays have taken to sunning themselves, or 20 minutes south to Bill Baggs State Park, another natural wonder where you can sun, swim or stroll near the park's famous lighthouse.
