Main restroom was dirty (women's), but the two restrooms at two other beach entries were fine. Saw iguanas, other large lizards, and a racoon. Nice morning at a a state park so close to a... More

Visited on a Saturday and there were numerous boom boxes and partying going on, not very quiet and can't get away from people or noise. Maybe go during the week, not sure but nothing like I expected. Walk along water is nice.

We paid the $8 entry fee and went right to the southern tip to see Stiltsville. Very cool views of Stiltsville and south into Biscayne National Park. We then parked and went to the beach with our two kids right by the lighthouse. It was a warm and sunny day. Crowded beach but extremely friendly people. Nice place to spend... More

We journeyed to this park after I had read that it had one of the best beaches in America. The beach is in the state park and you must have a day pass to enter. The beach stretches for a long way and has views of both the Atlantic Ocean, city of Miami and Biscayne Bay, there was hardly anyone... More

Excellent location on the end of Key Biscayne. Modest admission price for a long stretch of beach with a lighthouse at the tip.

We wanted to go to the beach for my son's birthday, which happens to fall on St. Patrick"s Day, but did not want to deal with loud, drunk, spring breakers. The concierge at our hotel recommended this beach and we were so glad we found it. It is at the end of Key Biscayne and being a state park, you... More

Right at the very end of Key Biscayne is a wonderful park that includes pristine white sand beaches, Gin Clear Waters, old lighthouse, and startling views of the ocean and sky. Terrific for sunbathing hiking fishing swimming or snorkeling don't this treasure close to Miami yet far from the maddening crowd. Enjoy!
