“Very nice to visit.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

But Lighthouse is under reapair. You can walk the grounds and go into the keepers house but not up into the Lighthouse.

You pay to eter the park but the lighthouse grounds are free.

“One of the most lovely places in South Florida.”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

Just minutes from Miami is the historic Key Biscayne lighthouse. For a quieter, wilder beach experience, wander over in the early morning or on a weekday. Bring a mask and snorkel -or just goggles- to see the tropical fish that swim among the rocks at the base of the light.

“Great visit but check the hours first!”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

This is a beautiful spot to visit and the light house has lots of history. We saw families on the beach and in the shady spots enjoying time together and cooking.
We were sad to find out upon arriving that the lighthouse closes at 5 pm. By the time we drove back into the light house area and parked, it was shutting down just a few minutes before 5pm. We could only see it from the outside by walking around to the beach.
We did not know the hours when we entered the park and paid the entry fee. I guess we should have asked - so I'll encourage you to ask before you pay!

“Beautiful!”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

I absolutely love lighthouses and the Cape Florida Lighthouse is no exception. Free, guided tours are available, just check the schedule before visiting. However, you must pay to enter the park. The guided tour is the only way to actually enter and climb to the top of the lighthouse, which is a modest trek. The views are worth it. Might as well check out the entire park while there.
