Picture-perfect, beautiful sandy beach. Yes, we swam with a manatee. It was pretty exciting and a little scary. In addition, we witnessed a large school of jumping fish, thousands of them, that jumped in and out of water right in the midst of swimmers who were straining to get out of the way. What a sight! It must have gone... More

Nice park to have a cookout or fish or walk the beach. Watch ships go i to the Atlantic or return. Its always nice to be by the ocean.

My fiance and I spent almost a full day at the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park and were thoroughly satisfied with our time there. We main went to see the lighthouse and were definitely not disappointed there, but we were even more excited about the nature trails. We took our time walking up the entire sea wall in order... More

This park was so accessible with lots of space for picnicking and outdoor activities. Great for families. Bring a basket lunch and enjoy!

The difference that 9 dollars can make is really astounding. In contrast to Key Biscayne's tourist-swamped public beaches, Bill Baggs is pleasantly uncrowded. Bring a picnic lunch (and your own chairs and umbrellas, to avoid the $20 fee for renting), and be sure to check out the lighthouse for a bit of local history.

I love this state park but I am a little biased. I was married here beneath the Cape Florida Lighthouse in June 2008. The views are beautiful! There were quite a few people on the beach this visit but it was still a nice relaxing afternoon. Check ahead and make sure the lighthouse is open when you visit. It's not... More

Stopped here after being chased away by gulls on Crandon beach next door. $8 to get in for car & well worth it. Parked by lighthouse-lighthouse tours were tues/wed 10am & 1pm (i believe) so got to admire the lighthouse from afar. The beach was gorgeous, water crystal clear, umbrella & 2 chairs for $20...we were pleasantly surprised to realize... More

We are a family of 4, my wife, two daughters and me. We love quiet and safe places to go all together. Nothing better than Key Biscayne if you wanna go to that kind of place with your kids. The nature, with its fauna, trees... the people who goes there, the beaches, the lighthouse... The entrance is so cheap, only... More

We loved the views over Miami and the bay. The only thing we missed was time to do some trails. Perhaps next time!

Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is a nice park. There is also a beach area, which I did not go to. The lighthouse is pretty nice, but was closed while I was there. There are some nice trails, a nice walk along the bay, where there are some picnic tables. Word of caution about eating at those tables. I... More
