There's a restaurant and several BBQ spots. If you bring food and eat in the park, be aware of the racoons and squirrels. Nice beach and lighthouse near by.

lovely place, white sand beach, nice walks, quiet and away from the Miami noise. There are these pre-installed BBQ places, but, if European, be aware, DO NOT BRING BEER, this is a crime! ridiculous, but you know, if in Rome....

Nice relaxing day of biking around and laying in the sun. No big waves or crowds. Just nice sandy beaches and sun. Rest rooms, showers, bike rentals, and a snack bar. Just go and enjoy.

Rent a bike in Key Biscayne, and bike down to Bill Baggs: a better alternative to driving there. Plenty of spots for fishing, a nice beach (but not exceptional), interesting tour to the Lighthouse and keeper's cottage (check for opening times).

Our party of 12 loved this place for the view, the excellent service (once we had settled) and the food. This is not haute cuisine: just excellent steaks, seafood and wines. The location inside the Waterfront is picturesque and the restaurant is not as touristy as others in the area. Prices are also very reasonable.

I must say that the State has done a wonderful job of keeping this historical site alive. Take the tour and learn of the tragedy which once occurred at this very spot. An unforgettable experience.

The park offers the Lighthouse to visit, walking trails, great fishing spots as well as a great beach. There are public restrooms with showers and changing areas and also a restaurant to grab lunch at. Lot's of wildlife, iguanas, chameleons and raccoons around. Do be aware of the mosquito population inland in the trees
