Oleta River State Park Beach North Miami Beach Area

Oleta River State Park is Florida's largest urban park, located right on the Oleta River on Biscayne Bay in Sunny Isles Beach. The sandy beach at Oleta faces Biscayne Bay, which is also where you go swimming. Palm trees, seagrape trees and other native vegetation provide shade.

Oleta offers miles and miles of off-road bicycle trails, from novice to challenging. The park has a loaner system for bicycle helmets. Oleta River State Park is also a popular destination for canoeing and kayaking. There's a rental concession with all the gear you need to paddle along Miami's calm bay waters.

For overnight visits, the park has rustic, air-conditioned cabins and a youth campground for organized groups. Large mangrove preserves, native to the area, are at the north end of the park and South Florida plants and wildlife are plentiful in this area. Canoe or kayak around the clear beautiful waters, swim along the 1,200 foot sandy beach, or go fishing for a day of the great outdoors.
