National Park Service

Did you know that just off the coast of Miami lie gorgeous coral reefs, pristine tropical waters and over ten thousand years of pirates, shipwrecks and Native Americans? A single trip to Biscayne National Park will change your views very quickly! This treasure is one of Miami's national parks.

Biscayne National Park is just south of the cultural and social hub of Miami, yet the atmosphere couldn’t be more different. At Biscayne National Park, you can snorkel and explore an ocean of colorful coral reefs and the dense population of marine life that inhabit it, or you can opt to explore the mysterious mangrove forests that line the shoreline.

No matter which activity you choose, you’re sure to enjoy the unique beauty of Biscayne National Park.

Outdoor Activities
