I've been going to Matheson Hammock Park since 1954 when my family moved to South Miami. Although there have been some changes, the Park has remained just as beautiful and relaxing now as it has always been. Probably my favorite place in all of Miami area!

It was a tough week in the business, I was exhausted, tempted to go to Friday night happy hour. We went to the beach at matheson hammock instead and sat in our beach chairs watching the sunset. Better choice, calming choice. It's one of the best views in Miami.

You also have a atoll - pool where you can take the kiddies without the fear of them swimming out to the deep blue.... More

Best place to watch the sunset away from the noise and crowds. The area is a hidden gem magically behind a huge park and surprisingly striking and full of life. The pictures tell it all.

I remember this place since growing up in 1960s Miami. It's where people too lazy to drive to a real beach settle for. Anyway, we were walking a few miles for exercise and needed to hydrate with something more than water. This place has a restaurant called Red Fish Grill but you have to be a seated customer to buy...

We stumbled upon this gem by chance. The view is amazing. There is a very nice wading pool for kids. We didn't try the restaurant but the view.....

Matheson hammock is a hidden gem. It is located off of old Cutler Road right on Biscayne Bay. There is a small saltwater lake with beach and a surrounding view of Biscayne Bay. There is one part of the park that is dedicated to windsurfing and windsailing. A great place to relax. There is a park fee of $5 weekdays... More
