South Beach, Key West
(2.4/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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.
