We just enjoyed this beautiful area so much. The weather was perfect for a great day at the beach and enjoying the sites.

Had planned to take a day trip out to Adams and Elliott Keys along with snorkeling. However the park concessionaire had recently broken the contract with the NPS, leaving little else to do, other than the visitor center and the beach/board walk. Was looking forward to the trip, but was out of our hands to do something else. Am sure... More

We have been out here several times on my friend's boat. We throw the anchor in and hang out for hours. The kids and adults alike have a blast swimming, rafting and kayaking. The water is so clear and the island is a piece of paradise. Highly recommend it - good times had by all.

If ya like yer camping with peace & quiet, forget Elliott Key. That's unfortunate, cause it has potential. I used earplugs *and* earmuffs! The "primitive" ocean side is better, but it's a (usually) buggy schlep to the facilities on the bay side.

Elliot Key is a beautiful location. I've been there several times on my friend's boat. Beautiful, relaxing, very special. It's a great boat ride from Miami. Nice to stay there for a few days and just enjoy the sun, the ocean, the peace, the silence.... really worth it!!!

I've only been by boat and it's always a good time. A few caveats...there are certain times of year where the mosquitos are insane over there. I recommend a repellent of some sort. Also, this may not be the best place to bring families because on some Saturdays and Sundays, SOME boat goers have no problem with being a bit... More

I have anchored off Elliott Key many times, usually in the area of Coon Point. Nice swimming and no crowds during the week. Interested in knowing more about the unsuccesful attempt to develop the island in the 60s and 70s. Have tried hiking across to the ocean, but the mosquitoes are horrendous. Captain Mark Wallace
