Families concerned about risque behavior on South Beach's packed swathes of sand will find more G-rated places to bask slightly to the north. Both Collins Park (201 21st St.) and Indian Beach Park (4601 Collins Ave.) have more room to roam and are generally much less crowded that beaches located right in the thick of things. Both have ample parking lots and facilities and are ideal for a jog, walk or romantic stroll. Collins Park marks the start of the Miami Beach boardwalk, which stretches for 20 blocks and allows for easy access to areas of the beach that are blocked by the string of condos built along Collins Avenue.
