From Hobe Sound/Tequesta to South Broward.
Am interested in sandy, quiet and clean beaches. Not for surfing; rather, a nice swim in a not too overcrowded beach.
Know Dade (and much further North) Brevard and Volusia beaches but never went to any beaches in the middle.
I saw a lot of erosion recently on a trip to Jupiter but no swimming that day.
Could'nt tell if it was rocky or what. Nice folks though.

Hallandle Beach is nice for just a nice beach to be at. Hollywood has a gritty, but fun and unpretentious "Broadwalk" that was renovated as well as a recently resanded, clean, but crowded beach with the most beautiful turquoise water color, seems to be even bluer than other area beaches. Not rocky at all either.

I've never been to Deerfield Beach, but my wife says it's very nice -- she's a photographer and often uses it for photo shoots.
The nearest beach to me is Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, which is worth a visit if you like funky little seaside towns with interesting restaurants and shops just steps away from the beach (though megadevelopment is creeping in).
Probably wouldn't recommend Pompano Beach -- last time I was there, I saw a lot of trash and cigarette butts in the sand. Yuck!

Default Try these beaches......

John D. McArthur State Park
Juno Beach

These are a little less busy and more family oriented.

Good luck!

Juno Beach is beautiful, but typically attracts crowds.

Hobe Sound beach has sand that I don't care for. It's because they've had to dredge and "reclaim" that beach a lot.

Default what is the best quiet and not busy beaches/parks for photoshoot in Miami-dade/Broward County?

Hello all,
Anyone knows what are the most quiet and non-busy beaches/parks in Miami-Dade and Broward county? I am looking to do a photo shoot this Sunday(I know its a bad day since everyone is at the beach) and I wanted to know what were the best beaches/parks that are not that crowded during a weekend. Any help will be appreciated.

Thanks.

Quietest: Virginia Key Beach, Crandon Park Beach, and Deerfield Beach.

Yes that state park was my favorite going to. It's a trip from the parking lot to the beach but they got a golf cart that picks u up. But it's uncrowded very desolate. The park has a very nice nature setting to it with the board walks up in the mangroves. It has a nature center and even has animal presentations every now and then. My favorite part is that is has a coral reef right of the beach where I used to do alot of snorkling.
