Virginia Key Beach, FL
Virginia Key Beach Short Term Forecast
One of the last remaining undeveloped parts of Miami Virginia Key Beach was once the only public beach and recreation facility for African Americans in Miami. In August 2002 the site was placed on the National Register of Historic Places and given a Florida Historical Marker. Closed by the City of Miami in 1982 the park remained shuttered until the Grand Re-Opening of the 82.5 acre property in 2008 when local citizens formed a task force in response to plans for private development of the property. More narrow than its Miami Beach near by Key Biscayne beach counterparts Virginia Key represents one of the last untouched natural places in the Miami area surrounded by dense vegetation. The water is calm and shallow and the beach boasts brand new and excellent facilities.
