“History at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

Loved taking my children here. My son completely enjoyed. We have gone back several times to make sure he did not miss anything. We even enjoy it being part of the ghost tours..

“Fabulous sunsets”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Nice views, great beaches and nice walks around this state park. The sunset from the park was spectacular.. experience the sunset from both the state park and also if you have a chance from the Mallory Square area, a quite different experience!

“Best beach in Key West”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

If you like solitude this is the only beach that I have found in Key West that you can truly find this. Nice sand. A little rocky when you first get in the water but fine after that. Nice affordable snack bar with supprisingly good food. Controlled by the parks service security is never a problem.

“Not for the tender foot but great time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

The beach isn't necessarily sandy, but really nice place to spend the day in Key West. Spend the money to rent and umbrella and chairs. Great concessions, clean bathrooms and wonderfully relaxing.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

We visited the fort, but didn't make it to the guided tour. Still, it was interesting to walk around, see the views, and we got a lot of the fort's historical detail from the signs posted around the different areas. We attempted to spend some time on the beach, but high winds that day made it very unpleasant, so we didn't stay long.
