The park is at the point of Key Biscayne, only a few miles but a world away from bustling Miami. It is a haven for walking, cycling, enjoying beach activity and family outings. There are many barbecue facilities and platforms for fishing. There are two restaurants where you can enjoy good, substantial food. The park staff are friendly and make... More

We visited for the day! It cost $8 to go into the park. It is well maintained but I wasn't impressed by the beach! Perhaps the tropical storm had affected the area - the sea was not azure blue, as in South Beach Miami - and there was a lot of washed up seaweed! The cafe offered a good choice... More

The drive through Key Biscayne is lovely. The park is a most pleasant surprise. You can see Stiltsville from the parking lot. My main reason for going was the lighthouse. The park ranger led the tour and we were able to climb to the top for a grand view of the ocean and the city. Very worthwhile. Good location for... More

It is a clean and less commercialized right off the Miami downtown. The access is easy and Key Biscayne is posh and nice landscaped town area. The admission fee to state park is very reasonable. Highly recommended for locals and people who dont want to be in middle of high octance Miami Beach.

This is our favorite beach. It's safe and not as crazy as miami beach. Beautiful little town area. People are nice. You can rent family bikes. Highly recommend!

Nice beach. Easy to get to. Nice sand and warm water. The picture here is a little deceiving. There was not that much debris on the beach. $20 to rent an umbrella and two lounge chairs.

They have nature trails and beach access. There is a nice little area by the lighthouse that you can tour on your own. If you are in the mood for a leisurely stroll, this is a place to consider. Not too many birds on the bird trail, but I think this may be due to the hot weather/time of the... More

I went back to Miami for a visit and decided to go to what was my favorite beach. Well, it is not what it used to be. It is ridiculously overcrowded. Impossible to find a parking space and once you get to the beach it is impossible to find a spot on the sand anywhere near the water. Disappointing. After... More

We spent the day on the beach here and rented chairs for an afternoon of lounging around. It was very relaxing and fun for the kids!! The food was good at the snack bar. Everyone found something to make them happy.

This is a little drive from Miami but totally worth the trip. For3 hours we were the only people for hundreds of yards. The facilities were newer and the water is nice and clear. Also the lighthouse is very pretty out on the point.
