This is a beach where the residents of Miami frequent, away from the tourist trail and quieter. It is accessed from the carpark from several points, across a boardwalk onto the beach. There are toilet facilities and freshwater showers, as well as a restaurant which is close the Cape Florida light house. You can hire bicycles, both 2 wheels and... More

Came back after many years away: - $10 to get in I was excited to hear that they had chair rentals ($20 to rent 2 lounge chairs plus umbrella, $10 for just umbrella). Unfortunately everyone has heard - the beach was a sea of umbrellas with very little space in between. We parked in area C which was near the... More

This is a nice in the Miami area where you get away from the hotels and rude drivers. Nice snorkeling spot by he light house. The ranger was well informed and had a lot of historical knowledge that made the sight come to life. There is a concession restaraunt on sight that has good seafood but as usual for Miami... More

Had a lovely day. Hired bikes and spent the morning cycling to the lighthouse along paths by the sea. Climbed all 109 steps to enjoy the fantastic view from the top. In the afternoon enjoyed the beach which was busy but on a very hot Sunday the sea was delicious. Can't give this 5 stars however as I did find... More

Cross the Rickenbacker Causeway to Key Biscayne and continue until the road ends. The end of the road will be the entrance of Bill Baggs State Park. There are many places to explore: There's a secluded beach surrounded by vegetation. There are walking/biking trails, a restaurant on the beach and another one on the bay side of the park. Picnic...

I absolutely adore Bill Baggs!!! Its both beautiful and adventurous. Perfect for family bike rides and going on little biking trails. You can even go fishing on the docks and visit the light house up close and personal! And the restaurants there are a piece of paradise.

Great beach! You can rent umbrellas, or find a shady tree to relax by (like we did). We were here on a Friday and it was extremely hot, but surprisingly not over-crowded.

Not too crowded, take a lunch and drinks for the family and off you go. I would suggest water shoes for getting into the water. Many areas are very natural so getting into the water (bc of the natural environment ) are not very kind to the feet but once you get into the knees it is just beautiful soft... More

This is one of the best beaches in miami. Water is tranqill and very clear. Only complaint is that it is such a hidden gem that it gets a bit crowded and no life guards. The cafe is okay at best. but inexpensive compared to what d you pay in Miami Beach.

The view of downtown Miami from the main bridge is impressive the park is ok the restaurants are not much to look at and offer not much in the way of choices plastic tables and chairs at both the Boaters Grill and the Lighthouse Cafe. The ladies in the group were unimpressed with the bathrooms dirty and smelly so they... More
