Wonderful visit

Great place to make a BBQ. Clean, organized, and isolated. Actually, not so far. Just the necessary. It worth every penny.

The beaches and lighthouse at Cape Florida make for a lovey setting. Very ample beaches with lots of space. Tide was a by strong for our toddlers so swimming had to be supervised at al times but they absolutely loved it. We went during winter which meant a cooler day and the beach was nearly empty. Lots of parking too.... More

Nice park, the lighthouse is a must see. Also a caretaker cottage for the lighthouse is on site. Lots of wildlife present. Bikes to rent, and a nice beach. Two restaurants at this park.

Fortunately, I was staying at the Ritz, so it was a nice walk to the park. Went via the beach, and also,along the sidewalks. Took 3 visits before I got to climb the lighthouse. It's only open 10-11, and 1-2, closed Tuesday and Wednesday.....double check my memory if you are going out of your way to get there! Worth the... More

We spent an afternoon there and it turned out to be the highlight of our trip to Miami. We spent sometime on the beach and then took a lo g walk around the coast. The sun was coming down and it was beautiful. The party was almost empty. Only problem was the number of raccoons. I believe the park should... More

Great location to have a beach day, you need to pay I believe was like 12 dollars to go into the park by car. I recommend maybe take your own food to be on the beach but if you want to go and eat amazing seafood there is a great seafood restaurant.

If you are into lighthouses, you don't want to miss this one. It has a very nicely restored lighthouse that you can climb up to the top. The state park fee is $8, but that includes climbing the lighthouse. The lighthouse ours were a little difficult to determine. We actually timed it right. They must close it for lunch and... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Bill Baggs during our stay in Miami Beach. Very easy to find. We rented bikes ($9 per hour each) for an hour (plenty of time to bike around the park) and also hiked. Peaceful place with wildlife all around. Go for a nice respite!

This park is lovely. Very well kept but still allowing nature to shine. It is a must see. The light house is breath taking. The $8 entrance fee is a bargain.

I love nature and this is a beautiful place , but I found myself running from lizards as big as dogs and raccoon's ! Loved it , but be prepared to get up close and personal with some wildlife !:)
