Miami Beach (1591I) occupies the southern 1 km of the beach, between North Nobby and South Nobby. Fifty metre high South Nobby protrudes 100 m into the surf, defining the end of the beach. The whole Miami Beach is fronted by a narrow beachfront reserve, with access tracks crossing the reserve from Marine Parade. The Miami Beach Surf Life Saving Club is located at the southern end. It has a large car park and is backed by a caravan park. The club was founded in 1946, when it was known as the Ipswich Railway Surf Life Saving Club.

Swimming

The eight surf lifesaving clubs and 16 lifeguard towers attest to the potential hazards along this long beach. Rips are present whenever waves are breaking and deep rip channels may run out from the shoreline. Swim only in patrolled areas and avoid the rip holes and outer trough. Stay close inshore and on the attached portion of the bar.

Surfing

Beach breaks extend the full length of the beach. Conditions are best on the outer bar, with a moderate swell and offshore winds. The Nerang entrance wall can produce some better quality bars and breaks. There are plans for Queensland's first surfing reef on the beach at Narrow Neck.

Fishing

Beach fishing is a very popular pastime along the length of the beach, with conditions best when there are rips across the inner bar. The Nerang jetty and entrance wall are very popular spots to fish the channel or surf.

General

This is undoubtedly Australia's most heavily developed and utilised beach. It offers a huge range of accommodation, attractions and facilities, together with the surf lifesaving clubs and lifeguard towers, as well as 16 km of beautiful beach and surf. However the surf is hazardous, so be careful as to when and where you swim.
