Very few people except for locals. Beware of the current and boaters - but at slack tide, you can see some interesting critters close up.

funny lil channel behind the library north of the highway in Islamorada. There's not any kind of "beach" there and there are boats coming through, but I can see how you would swim there...we just waded, but saw lots of cool fish, etc. If you were staying within walking distance, this would be a gem, but not exactly a destination.

After driving by this library several times and not realizing there was a beach behind it, we discovered it on our last full day of our trip. We signed up to do Stand Up Paddle Boarding with Otherside Boardsports and this is the location where we started the guided tour! It's a very small, quiet beach with a playground and... More

Great little secluded beach for paddle boarding and relaxing. It is protected from the wind and rough waters, but you can easily paddle out to the gulf and open waters.

Keys are not known for beaches, so what a surprise to find this little spot when we were kayaking around the mangroves. We (hubby, 9yo dtr, me) returned following day to snorkel here, too. Lots of life to see while snorkeling, even moreso than we found in outer mangrove areas. Little beach and grass for out-of-water relaxation, as well as... More

I want to find Founders Park this year. It looked clean but did not see much room to sit. Maybe I just did not see it right.

There was no cost and you just pull into the back of the library. The view was okay as far as the water goes, it was a little green in color due to it being further back off the main water. Little beach right there. I was there in the middle of the week so it was very quiet.
