Although Key Biscayne is overgrown.....the land that was donated with the lighthouse is a gem. The beaches at Crandon Park are lovely if not overrun with people. We could not climb the lighthouse but it is so great that it was restored and maintained.

I remember going to this beach when I was young. The view of the lighthouse is very nice (I did not actually visit the lighthouse). The greenery, etc. is also nice. Areas for picnic are available. The day we went - the seaweed was all over the place - UGH! there is a café that offers food, etc. but I... More

Miami's way one day we went to Key Biscayne Island. We hoped to see the manatees but they did not show up. Up to the lighthouse had long swaying stairs but we survived. Views from the lighthouse is just awesome.

We had very much looked forward to touring the lighthouse, but arrived two minutes after its closing time (2pm!!). We were disappointed but did not bargain or argue with the Ranger....unsolicited he scolded us for not having checked out the website and being better informed. As we were leaving this man (we actually did not respond), another tourist engaged the... More

This was so beautiful! The beach was right there and the surrounding area is just beautiful! The lighthouse has certain hours to go up. There is alot to see if you continue the trail next to the light house.

The lighthouse had great views. It is a steep climb and only a few people at a time are allowed up. The ranger stands at the door and talks about the lighthouse while you wait for your turn.There is only a small charge to enter the park...like $10 for the whole car. The keepers house is not open for the... More

It is real and authentic. For a relatively new place like Miami this is one of the only truly historic places to experience.

The light house is a great walk to get to - also it is open on certain days of the week (I think it is closed Tues&Wed) where you can walk to the top of it and see spectacular views of Miami and the ocean. A great place for a date/picnic with a loved one!

Nice beach area with showers and bathrooms. The restaurant is even good. Beautiful clear beaches. There are a lot of iguanas around. Getting a picture is hard.The lighthouse is nice but the beach is better.
