Bill Baggs has good beaches and trails. It has two resturants and a lighthouse with schedule tours throughout the week. However, the enterance price is $8.00 per vechile which can be pricey for a large family. Their is no beer or wine allowed at in the beach area or in picnic areas according to the ranger. It was a nice afternoon but limited in its many activites

Over all had a great time, keeping in mind it's a state park & there's wild life. We saw a snake (Eek), raccoons, squirrels, cardinals & other feather friends.
Try to do the lighthouse tour it's open from 9-5, quite interesting.

What a beautiful place. Pay the minimal toll over the bridge and the reasonable charge to enter the State Park at the far end of the village and find an oasis from all the noise and bussle of Miami. Unspoiled beaches, good, sympathetically designed and low key (no pun intended) facilities...indeed all you could want for a day on the beach. You can walk the trails as well and see the Mangrove area or the harbor or just enjoy the seaward view out to Stiltsville...houses literally built on stilts out in the ocean. Miami is fun but exhausting so give yourself a break and spend at least half a day here and recharge and relax!

While in Miami for the week, we spent a whole day dedicated to Key Biscayne and Bill Baggs State Parl - glad we did!

Beautiful state park with top rated beaches and nature trails. Bike rentals available. The beaches were super clean and picturesque.

The lighthouse was closed when we visited, which was a bummer.

2 restaurants in the park that are a little pricey, but certainly convenient.

When in Miami, this is nice park to visit once. It has got trails for biking, walking. Very huge area, better if you get some bike and roam on it end to end. We were able to see whole end to end park leisurely in 2 hrs on bicycles.
