Beautiful,stunning structure protruding into the clear blue sky. Located right not the shore, overlooking the ocean... I was lucky to have had a beautiful view of a rainbow, clear ocean view and a slight wind to cool off the sun's heat. Just a beautiful place to visit and meditate during sunset...

The tour itself is minimal. Mostly it's just walking up to the top but the views are worth it. Key Biscayne to one side and the Atlantic ocean to the other. Gorgeous!

Key Biscayne has a light house and there is visit done by the ranger. The Ranger that gave us the tour was really knowledgeable and the kids and us (parents) loved it. It is worthwhile to wait if you are a bit early for the tour. The view is also fantastic from the top of the lighthouse. The Park the... More

It's a very nice lighthouse and you can walk up to the top to view the ocean but the guys will not let you in if you are too close to 1pm even if you get there before 1. They will not stay one minute after and close up shop quickly.

Rent a bike and ride it into the park. Take the bike path the the end of the island and check out the lighthouse. If it's open, you can take the stairs to the top for an amazing view of Key Biscayne and Miami. Park Ranger tells the history of the lighthouse, which makes it even more interesting. Look for...

Lovely and historic. You can climb the lighthouse for a great 360 degree view of beaches, water and city skyline,

This is a great spot to visit. If I recall correctly it was free. It's one heck of a climb to the top but soooo worth it. As long as you're not afraid of heights. The beach surrounding the lighthouse is also beautiful.

Liked: easy to find, well preserved, information about the history is available. However, it wasn't open, and had no info about guided tours or anything. Nobody there to provide more information about the place. I would still recommend to visit this landmark.

Visited this State Park on a Saturday. We had checked the website for opening times of the lighthouse, tours were available at 10am and 1pm that day and we arrived too late; or so we thought. In fact you could still go up at gone 3pm and there was a slight queue as numbers are, quite rightly, restricted to avoid... More
