North Beaches

Collins Ave @ E (105), G (107), H (108), S (119), 120 Beach MAX miamibeaches.com

The barrier islands north of Miami Beach are occupied mainly by smart residential areas and a few oceanfront resorts along Collins Avenue. The North Beach areas are quieter than South Beach, but the hotels are right on the sands, and are less expensive.

A strip of sand between 79th and 87th Streets separates Miami Beach from Surfside, a simple community popular with French Canadians.
