Its a nice lighthouse, with a nice view of the ocean next to it and a walkthrough of a small cabin next it. There's a few plaques which give a history of the lighthouse and conservation efforts. It's a nice stop but don't expect it to be more than it is.

I'm not big on sightseeing or ventures of the scenic nature, but this was worth it and then some. Everything about this area of the planet exceeded expectations and made for a wonderful trip (except mosquitos). I can't say any more than GO!

Architectural jewel telling a story of guiding mariners into safe harbor. Built 1825, 95 feet high or 109 steps. At the top of the steps you can see: Stiltsville (community of water dwelling homes), South Beach, downtown Miami. In 1513, Ponce de Leon called the area "Cape of Florida", later it stuck to the lighthouse. The White lighthouse is the... More

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.

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
