“Tiki boat tours- All aboard!”

Simonton Street Beach
Ranked #83 of 180 things to do in Key West
Attraction details
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Key West does not have a lot of beaches and we were surprised how small this beach was. However, there is this great, small bar/restaurant call Loggerheads that serves awesome fish tacos and fish sandwiches located at this beach. You can grab a beer and rent a chaise/ umbrella for a nominal amount. For $15 a person, we took an hour tiki boat tour of the area. Captains are extremely knowledgeable of the area and accommodating. This was so fun and a must for tourists. We loved the tour. Support your locals who make this place so fun!

If you are looking for amazing beaches, then Key West is not the ultimate destination by any means. However, it has many great attractions and an amazing vibe that more than make up for just OK beaches. We recently discovered this little beach. The city cleaned up the area, added sand, a chair/umbrella concession and a nice little stand for beverages and lunch. It is nestled between a couple hotels and there is a little small vessel traffic at the adjacent dock. We enjoyed the beach because it was well-kept and there were lots of boats passing by in the channel. Not much parking, so ride a bike or walk.

We were unaware that "Bum Beach" had been cleaned up until our last trip to Key West! This is now a lovely small beach with a great little beach bar. We got a couple of chairs (~$5 each?) and spent a very happy afternoon camped out with some well-priced beers from the bar, and loved talking to the guys who work and manage there. We didn't try the food at the bar, but some other folks who did were raving about the fish tacos.

The swimming area is small, but very clean and nice, and there is a clean restroom in the bar area you can use to change (I am assuming with purchase). There is also a little boat that will take you out for harbor tours for $15. We ended up doing that and loved it.

Best fish taco's in the world are at Lagerheads, a little beach bar on this beach. Had them today. No joke...literally amazing.

Yes, it is small, but the guys that run the place are super friendly. The "hut" is new with a new bathroom and small bar/kitchen. Relax on your own chair and have beer, wine and/or their great fish tacos. For $15 you can get a nice boat ride around the islands nearby, about a 45 minute tour. The Captain (Dave) gives an interesting commentary during the ride. We also loved the State Park Beach too, but it is quite rocky and further away. Just being able to ride to the end of Simonton is so easy!! (yeah, I'm 64, you know what I mean?).
