  • Unfortunately not yet back to normal the ocean view area is closed and the sea across the Gulf has the classic blue colour, but is anyway nice to spend some time and make a visit to this park

  • We made a stop on this beach to find out and we were not disappointed. There was little world and it was perfect to make beautiful pictures. We thought we could eat there but everything was closed too bad only one negative point: they let the algae on the edges not to disturb the ecosystem. so you have to step over to the water... yuck

  • Intimate beach with killer views and shallow water perfect for a lawn chair in the ocean flow for a relaxing day.  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.
