Clean beach with all of the amenities. The beach is rocky so wear beach shoes. We had fun watching everyone who wasn’t wearing beach shoes think they could make it to the water without them. Ouch! We were staying close to Smathers beach but the...More
We didn't make it to the fort, but the beach was very nice. Well worth the $2.50 to get in, because everything was clean and nice. I appreciated that it had a lot of trees, so we could park our towels in the shade without...More
The park had always been a favorite visit while in Key West for the shady beach and easy swimming. We visited on a Tuesday when 3 cruise ships were docked-this led to a very crowded experience. Would
visit again but will definitely check whether any...More
Lived in Florida all my life and never realized this was so important in our country's history. Worth taking an extra hour to stop, see and listen to the park ranger. If you go to the beach, remember it's rocky so wear sea socks!
we had a tight schedule so decided to take the leaflet and read the boards as we went around. There was plenty of information to be able to do this. A couple of times we also heard one of the rangers explaining things to other...More
Nice little getaway from busy downtown Key West. The Fort is not extremely interesting but it does offer a nice view of the coast and is a piece of civil war history. The beach is really nice, there are plenty of picnic places, long chairs...More

The island itself isn't very wide (north & south), we walked from Mallory Square near where the cruise ships dock down Duval street to our hotel on South street in about an hour or so. There are closer streets than Duval, so I would guess that it would take about 1/2 - 3/4 hour to walk from the dock to Zachary Taylor Park. If you want you can take a cab or they have peddle cabs (you don't have to peddle) you can ride. Sorry I don't know what they charge. There is a couple of public bus lines you can ride but I'm not sure they go by the park.
