The water is wonderfully clear and - in the summer - so incredibly warm it almost wasn't refreshing. ALMOST! A completely sandy bottom with no seaweed in sight. This was a particularly good thing after my son got sea lice from all the seaweed at Hollywood Beach!! The lighthouse is beautiful and adds to the overall feel of this much... More

The history of the lighthouse and island are quite interesting and the beach next to the lighthouse was beautifully clear even when the rest of the island was a bit murky.

It's a bit out of the way--at the very end of Crandon Blvd--but has beaches & water, nature trails, and picnic / bbq pavilions. The area is away from development so it is very peaceful and well-maintained. As you walk out to the beach, you will notice that there is a usually a good deal of seaweed along the high... More

Got here early on a weekday and so so peaceful. A gorgeous sandy beach amongst the backdrop of dunes. We were able to pick up a take out lunch from Lighthouse cafe and enjoyed their large freshly squeezed juice. Lack of wifi meant we had to walk back a way to entrance to pick up Uber 😒.

Rented a multi person bike with my 7 year old in the middle. Great price. Bike had a canopy and was great as it was a hot sunny day. Saw several Iguanas and butterflies. Beautiful beach vistas along the way. Lighthouse was great to visit as well.

The Lighthouse is the main attraction for this park. But please do not be confused if you do not see it with the naked eye! It is hidden behind many trees and beautiful vegetation. The park is big and it has a lot of options to have fun and to spend a very good time with your family, friends or... More

Looks like a private island with paved bike paths and nature trails. Families and couples like the picnicking, grilling, cement huts. The beaches are soft the sand is brown, you have great views of Coconut Grove, the Cape Florida Lighthouse, downtown Miami. No lifeguards, municipal parking $8. Public bathrooms, fishing, hiking, cycling. The Lighthouse Cafe, for fish enchiladas and salmon... More

Went on a Saturday after reading the reviews, we are staying in South Beach. Arrived early and rented chairs and umbrella on the beach. Went to change in bathroom but unless you used a stall , there wasn't anywhere to change. The bathroom was dim, and what you would expect , wet floors and sand everywhere. The water was warm...

Spend the day on a nice clean beach, walking the nature paths, or just check out the amazing views. A must see. Missed the lighthouse tour, only twice daily. Next time.

Wonderful views. White sand. Not a crowd there at all. They have separate areas for prime fishing and swimming. Beautiful lighthouse. They have golf carts you can rent. Wonderful!
