South Beach, Key West

2.6
#3 of 6 in Beaches in Key West
Visit a favorite local hangout at South Beach, where the sandy shore and shallow water create the perfect environment for sunbathing and swimming. If you want to launch a boat, head to the concrete pier. As part of Key West, the beach offers good photo ops of the southernmost incorporated point in the 48 contiguous United States. Keep in mind that, while relaxing, the beach does not offer onsite restrooms. Add South Beach and other attractions to your Key West trip itinerary using our Key West vacation generator.

Where to stay in Key West

To explore the best of what Key West has to offer on foot, stay near Old Town, a picturesque neighborhood famous for its streets lined with tropical trees and gardens. Most hotels in this area feature rooftop decks, where you can meet friends for cocktails and enjoy ocean views at sunset. If you don't mind driving to where most of the action is, consider staying at a budget-priced inn or bed and breakfast on the eastern end of the island.
