“Beautiful views, but take a bike and shoes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

Key West doesn't have sandy beaches. There are lots of rocks in and out of the water so bring water shoes. Very pretty, clear water, and we had some beautiful ships sail by. Nice mangrove/pine walking trails and picnic areas. They have a snack bar, chairs for rent (cash only) and restrooms. It's too far to walk, so bring a bike or drive.

“Nice”

The beach was nice! Chair / umbrella available for rent. Nice restaurant with sun deck as well. Great place for climbing rocks that extend out from the shore!

“hidden treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

we rented bikes and toured the little park. The picnic area and beach was great, and not at all crowded. You need shoes cuz it's rocky and shell filled at the edges. cool cannons in the old fort, unique art sculptures contest entries, too.

“On the beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2013

Nice walking paths. The fort is a self guided tour. We didnt see any ghost though. Very peaceful area with beach, artwork, beautiful birds.
