This was the perfect spot for us to enjoy the keys. Beach, playground, basketball court, and two Olympic sized pools with diving boards. We spent the whole two days here. Highly recommend. We will be back.

We could not have picked a more perfect place to have our beach wedding. Book well in advance! Note, no decorations needed, the view is natures own decorations

This place is a hidden gem! Small beach are but very clean and nice. The pool area is awesome! 4ft deep is the shallowest depth. We stay there for 5 hours and had a blast!

This is a beautiful, quaint beach. Very small, gentle. Perfect for small children, families and just lounging. The park is a public one so I had to show proof of my hotel (Islamorada) stay. Awesome pool. Great park!
