I think half of my high school class of '65 from North Miami Sr. High used to congregate under the Haulover pier on the friends and I would either ride the bus from N. Miami or drive to Haulover almost every week-end. We could always find a gang of friends under the pier to hang out with and have fun. Oh, what happy was the best of times for kids!

hi! harold again we use to call this the pevillion consession when not surfing we would walk down the little asphalt road right off the sand from haulover pier to sonny isles pier that was what ? at least 2 miles this was about half way between the two piers we would stop get a coke and hot dog sit eat that and continue down the beach this is where the tunnel that ran under collins came out, to change the subject any body remember the drift party boats on the west side of collins across from haulover the best ones to go out on if you wanted to catch fish, were the popeye,hurricane,and misstory i forgot how to spell this i hope i braught back some memories for you!

Most of Haulover Beach is NOT clothing optional. The clothing optional section is only the extreme north end of Haulover from the tunnel from the marina parking lot on the west side northward on the east side.

That building is near the jetty.
Of course today in 2010 all those people would be nude. Haulover is now officially clothing optional.

I think that building was the snack bar. We always parked on the west side of A1A and then went in the tunnel under the highway to get to the beach side. I remember kids always yelled the loudest as soon as they got in the tunnel!

That building is still standing, but it's days are numbered. If anyone wants to get some pictures now is the time. It's going to be replaced by a much larger building to support Miami Dade Fire Rescue Ocean Rescue
