Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park has something for everyone.

(The Lighthouse is open Thursday- Monday at 10 am and 1 pm). There are two concession restaurants, bike rentals, beach chair rentals -- you... More

Best view of Biscayne National Park, Stiltsville and the reef where national park begins is the lighthouse. Only open twice a day, 10 and 1, and is not open Tuesday and Wednesday. So you have to check. 305 361 8779. Lighthouse is also a National Underground Railroad monument, as lighthouse was built to stop the flight of slaves and Native... More

The park boasts a lovely lighthouse which is closed for tours on Tuesday and Wednesday. The peninsula has views over both Biscayne Bay and the Atlantic. Go and look at Stiltsville - fascinating. A very peaceful park to visit.

Visit Key Biscayne this summer and ended at the beach of Bill Braggs State Park. A very nice baeach, with nice warm and very clear water. For a few dollars you can hire rentalbeds, just at the Waterfront! One of the beaches wich is not overcrowded!

We rode our bikes on the trails and ended up on the beach to watch the moonrise! The park dunes are so lovely and the water so clear and filled with life. It is truly a treasure. There are also no crowds. Hope it stays that way.

A taste of what South Florida wild is like. Very well kept, great for a bike ride. With beaches and trails for walking, running or biking.

I loved this park. We fished, saw a family of wild racoons hovering a round a family attempting to barbecue, and saw all sorts of birds, fish, during our visit. It's a nice, clean, safe park to visit, picnic, and enjoy with family or for a romantic excursion. The park closes at sunset.

I liked that it was a cozy private beach and it was far from the crowds of the regular beaches in Miami Beach. The park itself could use heavy refurbishing and maintenance.

Great spot facing west over the bay. Incredible sunsets. You can also see the remaining houses on stilts out in the bay. Very cool. Usually good dolphins but did not see any. Great protected cove if you have a boat. Also a nice looking bar/restaurant but did not partake.
