A trip to Bill Bagg's State Park early in the am is a gift. You can start at the lighthouse and walk as far north as you like undisturbed by the shadows of buildings. As the sun warms the sand, the birds circle above the water and solitary runners pass you. The solitude gives you a chance to contemplate how... More

My wife and I drove out to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park during our May-June 2015 holiday. It was a fantastic half-day, and here we'll summarise the details and best bits. The only way in and out is over the Rickenbacker toll causeway. There are no cash toll booths, so make sure you know how you'll pay (Sun Pass... More

Beautiful park, with bike rentals available ranges from $9.00~$15:00 per single bike. Eco-Conscious warning signs indicating to visitors to leave only footprints, everything else should go home when departing from the park. Entrance charge is $8.00 per vehicle. Lucky to have walk on the beach and saw a beautiful rainbow.

Views, beaches, fishing, picnic areas, nature trails and history...all at this state park. The best views are from the top of the lighthouse. Free tours only at designated times so check the parks website. If you like the outdoors this is a great spot.

We recently traveled to Miami and decided to take an afternoon and visit the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park. It was quiet with hardly any other visitors and the park was beautiful. We saw the lighthouse although we were unable to have a tour. We visited on a Tuesday and there are no tours offered on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.... More

$8 to get in, and worth it. Plenty of parking, short walk to beach, clear water, beautiful lighthouse, and great little restaurant.

Beautiful beach and lighthouse .Limited days to tour the lighthouse so plan accordingly. Interesting history with informative markers. BBQ pits ,shelters available. We had an enjoyable packed lunch at a picnic table overlooking Stiltsville on Biscayne Bay. Thank you Bill Baggs for your efforts to keep this part of Florida free of development .

You take the highway to Key Biscayne. Where it ends you pay a small fee to enter the State Park. Best and most tranquil beach in the Miami area.
