Get here early to get your pictures.

This is a heavily visited and iconic site on the island. On a clear day, it is said you can look across to Cuba just 90 miles away. Today was not our day. It was beautiful but we... read more

Long wait for photos. It's a bucket list item so definitely must go. We were on bikes and didn't mind strangers being in our shot, so we snapped a few pics and road off onto the next activity.

It's a must see because of the landmark status. But go super early - like between 8-9 and no one will be there. Otherwise, you'll be surrounded by people waiting in line for a picture in front of it. Yes, people get in line for this thing! We took a picture as we zoomed by on our bikes.

This is a heavily visited and iconic site on the island. On a clear day, it is said you can look across to Cuba just 90 miles away. Today was not our day. It was beautiful but we saw nothing but big blue ocean. You are just a very short walk to the Hemingway House, the Little White House and... More

It's cool to see you don't even have to get off if you want unless you'd like pictures beside it. Its visible from the trolley tour whether it's a stop for photo op, or just passing by it was neat to see the "end" of the USA at it's southern most point with Cuba beyond!

Sort of cool to see, but not worth waiting in line just for a picture... Lots of people so the area is crowded.

Stopped by the point during our stay. We had breakfast the next morning at the Southernmost cafe. There was a long line so we snapped a quick pic from across the street and walked on.

So i think its a pretty good place to snap a few interesting pics of the most southern point of the Continental US! Now i can officially scratch this off my bucket list. Depending on the time of year there might be a line to take a picture beside the buoy. But i think its well worth it!

I thought of having a picture at the southernmost point would be great. Sadly so did everyone else!! The temp was in the 90's with high humidity and there were about 100 people lined up to take a picture. At least they were lined up so each person could get a good picture. I did get one from across the... More
