Path to Bliss
This tranquil beach path is not the most polished one you'll find in Miami. It's not the most impeccably landscaped, or the most iconic, but it is among the most authentic. This path leads to a beach that is actually part of a nature preserve, so the vegetation you see – like the sea grapes and dune grass – is a throwback to traditional South Florida barrier islands, the way nature intended. It lends itself to plenty of bugs, but at least this keeps away the throngs of visitors, and gives you a borderline private slice of tropical paradise. This scene is from Bear Cut Nature Preserve, on Key Biscayne.
