There's something for everyone here! You can lounge in the sun while your kids play at the playground within eye view. You can snorkel, swim and there's a wonderful restaurant for lunch or dinner. Also, equipped with showers and restrooms.

This beach was awesome. For 20 dollars (get there early) you can rent 2 beach lounge chairs and an umbrella for the day. There was a great restaurant right on the beach as well as public restrooms. This was my favorite beach.

As far as Key West beaches go this one is my favorite. Miami beaches are better but you don't go to Key West for beaches. You go for all the other things to do in Key West.

Don't go to Key West for the beaches. They are not that great compare to other Florida beaches. Water level is low, and the beach is normally covered in a stinky seaweed.

This was our favorite beach at Key West. We really enjoyed the calm waters - perfect for just floating around with an inflatable raft. Beach chair and umbrella rentals on the beach were great too and fairly inexpensive for the whole day. We saw a sting ray from the pier which was very exciting! Salute restaurant on the beach is...

1st there are working bathrooms and showers. Plenty of beach space, shallow enough for little kids to enjoy, lots of marine life swimming around to.

The view is nice and it has a pier that you can walk out on to get into the water using stairs. The problem is getting into the water from the beach. It is very, very, very rocky in most places. You have to find a path to walk so you don't hurt yourself on the rocks. Some of the... More

there is not very many good beaches in Key West, it's just not known for beaches, but if you are looking for a good beach to chill out and relax this is it.
