“The only real beach in Key West”
Reviewed October 29, 2011

We walked to the beach from Orchid Key, not far at all. We paid a nominal fee to get in. The setting is beautiful and the beach is great. The scenic trees provide shade, the water is crystal clear. The beach is a mixture of mostly sand with small stones. We had a nice lunch at the little beachside cafe. I had the Cuban and chips for a very reasonable price. Very nice, clean restrooms. Don't miss this beach.

“The best beach on Key West”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

Beautiful beach, great snack bar (even sold beer) and it also had a gift shop at the snack bar. The bathrooms were super clean there, and it was only $2.50 a person admission fee.
The fort itself is a short walk from the beach and was very interesting as well as providing excellent views of Key West proper.

“Nice place for a bike ride.”
Reviewed October 24, 2011

We visited Fort Zachary by rented bikes and it was a fun little excursion. Not much to see on the fort side, but worth visiting, none the less. The views from the bike path were enjoyable and the partk seems well kept and clean.
