Our party of 12 loved this place for the view, the excellent service (once we had settled) and the food. This is not haute cuisine: just excellent steaks, seafood and wines. The location inside the Waterfront is picturesque and the restaurant is not as touristy as others in the area. Prices are also very reasonable.

I must say that the State has done a wonderful job of keeping this historical site alive. Take the tour and learn of the tragedy which once occurred at this very spot. An unforgettable experience.

The park offers the Lighthouse to visit, walking trails, great fishing spots as well as a great beach. There are public restrooms with showers and changing areas and also a restaurant to grab lunch at. Lot's of wildlife, iguanas, chameleons and raccoons around. Do be aware of the mosquito population inland in the trees

Beautiful beach at the end of Key Biscayne with gorgeous views of the Atlantic. Can get an umbrella and two beach chairs for $20. Snack Bar/Restaurant is nearby.

Clean water, not as hot than the one at the Keys or in Miami. Beach is clean, not crowded when I was there with chairs and umbrella for decent rate. Great the current that in the morning can make you swim like a pro or almost stand still. A must see! Even the cafe is good and not expensive.

We decided to spend a relaxing day walking around this area. Views from the lighthouse are excellent, and surprisingly the entrance was free. Whilst sitting there watching the boats go by we saw dolphins leaping out the water. Maybe no big deal for the locals, but we don't get these amazing creatures swimming around the UK, so we were really... More

Tasty delicious food, feeling of certain aviance and gorgeous sunsets, friendly staffs... just a brilliant place. One could see signs of "leave only footprints behind" take every thing else home, eco-conscious community. A charge of $8.00

Good access. Excellent parking facilities. View of the houses on stilts. Nice place to stroll and have a picnic nearby where there are bathroom facilities. Too bad they close at 5 pm that in practice was 4:45 pm.
