Unhappy Times at Miami Beach Marina (near Government Cut Inlet)
We stayed here for 3 nights in early Jan 2010. We will never stay there again! The rates are exorbitant. The bathrooms were cold. The laundry had only 2 machines.
Worst was the heavy current and the incessant rocking back and forth at the dock. We have a 42 foot sailboat and had out multiple lines, yet we slammed the dock pilings and could barely sleep for the motion and the noise of water slapping against the hull 24/7. We had one line that had chafe gear break during the night.
The fuel dock is handy, and that is the only service that we will use here again. This marina is just too exposed to the winds and currents and boat traffic of the heavily used Government Cut Channel.
It is an easy walk to the heart of South Beach, Publix grocery, Staples, Best Buy, Post Office, Church, and the south point park is beautiful for walking or jogging.
If you stop here, have a big wallet and be ready to open it wide.
