“Spend the day here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

We enjoyed exploring the old fort, and the beach here.
The beach has a rather extensive concession stand and picnic tables under the trees......Perfect way to spend the day.

“Beautiful views, but take a bike and shoes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

Key West doesn't have sandy beaches. There are lots of rocks in and out of the water so bring water shoes. Very pretty, clear water, and we had some beautiful ships sail by. Nice mangrove/pine walking trails and picnic areas. They have a snack bar, chairs for rent (cash only) and restrooms. It's too far to walk, so bring a bike or drive.

“Nice”

The beach was nice! Chair / umbrella available for rent. Nice restaurant with sun deck as well. Great place for climbing rocks that extend out from the shore!

“hidden treasure”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

we rented bikes and toured the little park. The picnic area and beach was great, and not at all crowded. You need shoes cuz it's rocky and shell filled at the edges. cool cannons in the old fort, unique art sculptures contest entries, too.
