If you are in Homestead, don't miss this park. There is a boardwalk along the shoreline that has excellent views of the mangrove islands in Biscayne Bay where you can stretch your legs and enjoy the sea view and breeze

A great little NP that provides a good understanding of the fragile eco-system of South Florida. The canoe rentals were closed so that was a bummer. But the walkway is a great way to see things up close. Good sea breeze. Nice small museum to learn about the NP. Good number of movies to see. Not much to do if... More

We stopped by here for an hour or so on our way to the keys. The Rangers were nice and had some Jr Ranger programs going on. There are lot of benches with views of the water and a boardwalk area to walk on. There is a nice small visitor center display area with some neat stuff. Most of the... More

Bay Breeze is great and nice place to rent water equipment. A bit of a drive out in the middle of nowhere but worth it once you reach your point.

It's free. It was a nice boardwalk with lots of benches all with water views. If I lived near here I'd enjoy the quietness, but to really get this park you need to boat, fish, or dive because 95% of it is under water. Wish I knew how to dive.

While there is little to do on land, you are supposed to be able to take boat tours or rent kayaks, snorkel or dive there. However, be sure to call in advance to check if they actually run these programs as they were closed down for the foreseeable time when we visited and only offered a ranger tour of the... More

Biscayne National Park is great, but unless you can get out to the barrier islands or go snorkeling, etc., there isn't much to see. The visitor's center is nice with its displays and decks for looking out over the water. We actually had kayaks with us and put in next to the visitor's center and had a nice paddle out... More

Very sad that such an amazing water park has almost exclusively land based activity due to problems with the water based concessions. The park is beautiful such a shame we couldn't see the majority of it. The staff were very helpful and even phoned the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park down in Key Largo to book us on a... More

Great fishing, snorkeling and camping place for local people who have boats. There is nothing to do for travelers. Nice visitor center but it closes at 5 pm.
