I really enjoyed our 2 hours in the park, a friend found it online and we wanted to visit the park. The lighthouse ONLY opens from 11 to 2 pm, so make sure you are on time to escalate it :) I am planning to come back with my family, to have a barbecue, so that my men can fish,... More

I truly enjoy performing weddings there. You need a permit to get married on the beach and at this time the permit is free. How ever your vendors (chairs, arbors, etc.) Will need to have insurance. If you are lucky you may get away with but- they are very diligent of patrolling the beach and having your wedding taken down...... More

My friend and I sort of stumbled upon the park when we drove across Key Biscayne. We didn't do any activities, but we went on a Sunday afternoon and it saw people biking, fishing, running, driving these little bike-carts, having picnics. The beaches are stunning, with soft white sand and really clean water. We visited the lighthouse which is really... More

Can not recommend this park highly enough. Amazing beach and views. We saw tropical fish, manetees, sand dollars, etc. The restaurant in the park was a huge bonus with amazing fresh fish and homemade sangria. We were there on a very bust beach day and the park was not at all crowded. Great escape from the crowds and partying in... More

We drove from Miami and were really only interested in seeing the lighthouse. The park does offer many trails for walking and biking and is a great place for a picnic. If you like lighthouses, do plan a visit, but note that tours of the lighthouse are only offered on certain days. The park admission was $8 for 2 people... More

Great setting, very beautiful beach. Was there on New Years Day, and visited specifically to see the lighthouse. We got there at 11:15 and found that the only way to see the lighthouse was with the "tours" that were held daily at 10 and at 1. We were told by the friendly Ranger at the lighthouse that we had to... More

This park is very average with a lighthouse which is about the only thing it has going for it. I guess considering it's so close to a major city is a plus in it's favor, but it's very small and lacking in things to do when compared to other state parks we've been in while traveling in Fl or other...

Great way to experience the ocean breeze and get a bit of exercise for the whole family, teens and young alike. There is a bike rental which also rents tandem carts where an adult and child can peddle together or a little one can just sit and enjoy the ride. The lighthouse was fun (109 stairs were counted by the... More

Too many seeweeds on the shore. There is a seaweeds belt 10-15 ft away from the shore which prevent people from swimming further. Too many people in the weekend. Smoke from BBQ everywhere. South Pointe Park is way better.
