North Shore Ocean Terrace

Miami Beach, Florida
Mis à jour par The Swim Guide - Florida

This area spanning approximately 87th to 72nd streets along Collins Avenue offers visitors the feel of a wilderness park in the midst of the North Shore Historic District, recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places, boasting the mid-20th century architecture style that has come to be known as “Miami Modernism” or MiMo. Despite readily available parking including parking meters and a public lot on 72nd Street, this beach never seems to be over-crowded like other parts of Miami Beach. A tropical landscape of grape and coconut trees and dunes housing sea oats, this beach also offers restrooms, picnic tables, grills, showers, a nature trail, an exercise trail and bike path. The park is generally open sunrise to sunset and lifeguards on are duty daily. Stop by the Ocean Terrace boardwalk or check out a concert at the fun North Shore Bandshell nearby.
A well-maintained and wide beach, it stretches all the way to the Hillsboro inlet and Lighthouse. The beach includes a boardwalk, surf fishing, snorkeling, swimming. Metered parking is available. Pass by a small serene lagoon on a stroll through the North Shore Ocean Terrace park to Biscayne Bay. A long sidewalk leads ot a wooden boardwalk over the mangrove-lined Bay and out to the beach. There are 2 picnic shelters, bbq pits, restrooms and outdoor showers. Note: there are no lifeguards and pets are not allowed.

The Florida Department of Health (DOH) adopted new water quality criteria January 2016 for the Healthy Beaches program. They reflect the most current recommendations and water quality grant requirements in the 2012 Recreational Water Quality Criteria from the US Environmental Protection Agency. Dade County beaches are monitored by the Florida Healthy Beaches Program.

Monitoring results are collected weekly on Mondays and results are posted to the Florida Healthy beaches website on Wednesday. Samples are collected year round, however the peak season is from March to November. Swim Guide checks for the latest information daily, Monday - Friday.

The Florida Healthy Beaches Program Categories are:

Good = 0-35 Enterococci / 100 mL of marine water;
Moderate = 36-70 Enterococci / 100 mL of marine water, and;
Poor = 71 or greater Enterococci / 100 mL of marine water.

The 2012 Recreational Water Quality Criteria recommends using 70 CFU per 100 mL as the Beach Action Value (BAV) to guide public health advisories. A Single Sample Maximum (SSM) at 70 CFU per 100 ml and a BAV are functionally the same. If the sample result is above the indicated value, the beach is resampled and tested the following day or a beach advisory is issued with the first test result. The Healthy Beaches program no longer uses geometric means to represent recreational water quality data.

On Swim Guide a beach is marked Green when it has a Good or Moderate standing meaning the SSM test results show Enterococci counts between 0- 70 cfu (colony forming units) / 100ml.
Swim Guide marks a beach Red when it has a Poor standing. This means the SSM test results show Enterococci counts exceeds the BAV of 70 cfu/100ml. These conservative advisories better inform vulnerable people (children, elderly, and the immunocompromised) who have elevated health risks due to water quality at the beach.
A beach is marked Grey when no current or reliable monitoring information is available.

Please note: Vibrio vulnificus bacteria, also called flesh eating disease, is a naturally occurring bacteria in some of Florida's waters. This bacteria can be lethal, especially when contracted by individuals with compromised immune systems. Concentrations of the bacteria are higher in the mouths of rivers near oceans. The bacteria is most dangerous when ingested in raw seafood but recent deaths are attributed to individuals who have waded in water with broken skin. Beach goers are urged to use caution and consult a physician if you suspect you have come in contact with the bacteria.
