Loved the visit to escape the man made noises ...enjoying natures sounds! Walking to the park is not that convenient. Biking is better...bike paths really help keep the cars safely away from the two-wheel crowd. Beaches are best on weekdays...when the day visitors from Miami being their carload without bringing their courtesy, mutual respect. The fewer carloads, the nicer the... More

Beaches had seaweed washed up on the sand. Litter in the grassy reeds(underwater). Crowded on weekends. Good lighthouse tour. Pretty restaurant within the park. Food was good, especially the fish. Service was good, staff was friendly, but the floors and tables were dirty. Turtle nests were marked and checked on daily. Interesting talking with the wildlife biologist who checked on... More

A visit to this state park is a real treat. The wildlife are incredible and the lighthouse is unlike any that I've visited; it is truly an enchanting place to visit and to take beautiful colorful photographs. Visitors can rent bikes, walk trails, play on the beach...there are lots of activities for everyone. It's a great way to spend the... More

It costs $8 to get in, but if you spend the day there, it will be worth it. Start your morning with breakfast at the Boater's Grill, but take bug spray, or bugs will force you to eat inside. Rent a bike and ride around on the very flat island bike paths. Eat lunch at the Lighthouse Café and spend... More

My experience here was terrific. The beach is a bit different than those of Clearwater, but it was very nice. I went late just before closing time at sunset. There were barely any people there, so you had a whole area to yourself. Watching the sun set here was very beautiful and calm. This is a great beach and park... More

The lighthouse is worth visiting, but there are better beaches to spend your day on than Key Biscayne.

After visiting so many of the state's parks, I was disappointed in this one. The beach was absolutely filthy; trash was all over the beach. The restrooms were just as bad-mud and trash everywhere. There were raccoons all over the picnic area taking advantage of the trash and quite frankly it made it unsafe; raccoons are mean and can carry... More

We entered this park ,paid the fee as the lighthouse was advertised as being open from 9-5. However, actual access to the structure and keeper's cabin was limited to 2 times a day (and not on Tues or Wed) and if you miss one of the times (you find out about when you get there) you are out of luck....
