“Hidden Treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2015 via mobile

Beautifully wild and wonderful trees and native plants with beautiful views of the water, too. The garden club member was most gracious and informative. Loved the old structure and rooms of the fort inside and out. It doesn't cost anything but they are happy to accept donations. It is totally maintained by the Key West Garden Club members.

“Lovely Spot!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2015

Close to Higgs Beach, the West Martello Tower is a beautiful garden area. There is a handout to share the history of the tower.

“Peaceful garden spot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2015

We just happened upon this place while walking around and we're glad we stopped in. Admission is free with a handout explaining the history of the tower, followed by a self-guided tour of the gardens. It's a nice little getaway that overlooks the southern beach.
