“Best beach on key west”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We went to all the beaches. This was the best. You can walk on the beach and get in water without shoes.

“The beauty of a South Florida beach”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Higgs Beach is a regular stop when we visit Key West. The beach is not expansive, but it is a very clean beach, and the water is the perfect color and temperature to encourage beachgoers to take a plunge. It is so refreshing and a high point of each visit.

“Really exotic”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

With the calm and clear blue water along with white sand.. this looked very exotic to me.... and pretty affordable too.. like renting the snorkeling gear ( the clear warm water is real temptation) and even the beach chairs and umbrellas..I didn't quite expect that... Miami south beach should learn something from them..
Since most of the Key West beaches are privatized or not easily accessible by public (such a shame), we were glad to find a decent spot out here.

“Gorgeous beach!”
Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

I spent a great morning at this gorgeous beach! The water was warm and clear, the beach was clean and it was free! There were lots of fish to see if you snorkel out by the pier. You can also buy snorkel gear from the hut that rents beach chairs and umbrellas ($20 for 2 chairs and an umbrella). There's also a restaurant on site...and public rest rooms. To me there's no other beach worth bothering with!

“Public beach with free parking!”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

Nice sandy beach with facilities. Free parking. Long pier (no fishing here) so you can see fish in crystal clear water. Looks like a good snorkeling here (we did nor snorkel, water was a little cold for us in March). Good for babies and everybody else, shallow and no waves.
