Yes, and then in certain spots no, sand is deep and (think broken ankle) loose in some spots, but for the most part, you can run on the beach. If you run in the morning, you get extra credit for hurdles over seagrass piles made by the beach cleaning men! Enjoy. This refers to a run south from Coconuts to Royal Palm. PS I know alot of people run on the surface streets back in the neighborhoods too.
