Small but fun. Less rocks & seaweed than other beaches we visited on Key West. Relaxing & food bar was very good. This would be my first choice next visit..

A small beach at the end of Simonton Street. Swimming area and beach are very tiny. There is a refreshment stand and chair rental. I did not see any rest rooms. Easy to walk to.

The Simonton Street Beach was recommended by the hotel staff, and I had a terrific time there. The beach is run by the folks who have the sports bar on the property & they could not be nicer. People brought their own blankets, or sat in chairs. You can rent a lounge for $10, also. Great view, restful beach. Quite... More

When you first pull up it doesnt look like much. But you know when visiting the island there are not a lot of places for sandy beach areas. This is a good place to sit and relax and swim for the day. You will encounter a lot of cruisers coming from the port. But always entertaining.

This little beach next to the Pier House has a nice sandy beach - complete with chair and umbrella rentals. There is Lagerhead Beach Bar where you can get tacos and beer. Sometimes live music too. The other side of the beach /pier is a boat ramp and good place to take dogs for a swim. This is a good... More

Nice beach shade trees and benches on site. There is also a small store for misc stuff to buy. Need flip flops to avoid the sharp rocks on the beach.

We spent many hours and days here with our dog. The sand at the water is mostly rocks, shoes are advised! The rest of the sand is very soft. The water is very clear. There aren't any waves unless a boat goes by. While we were swimming, we saw lots of colorful fish and two manatees!! They were only about... More

Stumbled on this little place looking for something else. Ended up staying and enjoying. It's wrapped up in the marina and could be easily overlooked. But stop by, have a beer and relax.
