This is truly a treasure not to be missed if you are either visiting or a local. This place is great especially once on top, the view is amazing.

I really liked the paths to the lighthouse with all the very tall palm trees! The old house next to the lighthouse looks really cosy. Unfortunately the lighthouse itself was closed and we were also unable to look at it from the front, as a pregnant lady in a bikini was busy with being photographed over there. Same situation for...

The setting, right next to a beautiful beach and a romantic light house, is quite superior to the rather average and somewhat mediocre food...

Great view of Biscayne from the top of the light house. Not good to climb if you are unfit or do not like confined spaces. Also at the top it is very open so don't take any children that are hyper active as they can easily climb over the side and there are no safety nets. OK Health and Safety... More

The lighthouse scenery is beautiful but you can barely climb it, only on certain times. Admission to park charges $8 and basically it is just for entering the park. You can walk to the park from beach side and get in there for free!

The lighthouse is only open for tours 10-11am and 1-2 pm every day but is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We were sad to only be able to see the outside, but it was impressive!

Nice walk to get there and you pay admission into the surrounding park. You can only go into the light house around 10 AM or around 1PM (PLEASE NOTE Im not quite sure abaout the timing). The little light house house is open in the park times. You can either walk or drive to it.

A nice walk to the property of a small house and a beautiful lighthouse. We got to walk up all the stairs inside it too. I took a pic from one of the windows from the top of it . Which you will see in this review

We entered this park ,paid the fee as the lighthouse was advertised as being open from 9-5. However, actual access to the structure and keeper's cabin was limited to 2 times a day (and not on Tues or Wed) and if you miss one of the times (you find out about when you get there) you are out of luck....
