  • Entry pay based on the number of people ($ 9 for 2) only a small area of the beach is open, unfortunately on the side of the road, even if the sound is not too annoying. The vagaries of natural disasters, hoping that the money of the level allows them to get the Park back on course. The place is still a good place for lounging in the Sun.

  • This beach is very clean, and not overcrowded at all. It is a state park, so you just pay a fee for the car to enter. There are tons of iguanas creeping around, which is always cool to see (at least f...  more »
  • Sadly, there did not appear to be much left of this beach when we visited in January. :( It had been mostly wiped out from the hurricane.  more »

  • This is having good small beach but very beautiful. You can see almost three different colors of water. Currently it is not fully operational due to IRMA. Still it is worth visiting this place. Better to stop over here while coming back from Key West. It is almost on the highway.
  • Beautiful park. I thought the north side beach was nicer than the south side, but the north side was much busier. Worth the visit for sure. Nicer than any of the beaches we saw in Key West. If you want it quiet hang out on the beach on the south facing side of the park. I was here before the hurricane hit so it may not be as beautiful as I remember, but hopefully it will recover soon.
  • It is one of the few beaches that is open since the hurricane. The park is not fully open to public but in exchange they lowered the entrance fee. The little piece of beach that is left is nice and sandy. It is worth to take a walk up on the old bridge; gives a nice view on the park.
  • Wonderful park. Beautiful little nature trail up to a historic road. Great views. Nice place to clear your mind. You can swim at this one. Also they have a marina but it was closed due to after math of hurricane Irma.
  • It was Absolutely gorgeous. A SAFE place to swim, snorkel, hike and watch a mesmerizing Sunset. The tropical fish in plain site swimming at your feet. The birds in full flight and fishing , everything was perfect. Extremely affordable. I would give it my highest reccomndation.
