  • Gorgeous lighthouse. Open twice a day for tours, but the line was long (only 10 people allowed up at a time) so we didn’t queue for it,

  • Cape Florida Lighthouse is a must to see and if you are there you should climb to the top. The view was nice and it was so calm.

  • Amazing views and the place was not crowded at all. From the time you enter the park to the time you leave the facilities are always kept cleaned. The beach was nice, water was free of debris/trash, there were a lot of other guests enjoying the beach but were pleasant to be around. The lighthouse was something cool to see. We just moved here and where we came from there weren't any lighthouses to see, so this was first for us. This history of the park was very neat to learn about as well. I would suggest getting here earlier as it does get hot and there isn't a lot of room for shade. Bring an umbrella if you plan to be on the beach for awhile. Highly recommend 👌
  • This is a lovely and beautiful spot at the end of key biscayne island. Only $8 per car, $4 per motorcycle, to enter and enjoy this very special park. Clear waters, perfect for pictures, plenty of activities to do: fishing, walking, cycling, grilling, etc. Very quiet and surrounded by so much nature... It was great to appreciate the restoration and all the work is been made to the lighthouse, and what better way to welcome guests that displaying old parts of the original lighthouse. The sign explains pretty good where each part comes from. Beautiful piece of history 👏🏻
  • My first time visiting this place, it was very nice and beautiful. You can go up the lighthouse, but it's not open every day. Best place to walk around and sightseeing, beautiful beach and can also see the downtown. Best place for a family weekend trip. (Fishing pier is closed for now). You have a lot of things to do outdoors, like biking, walking, and fishing.
  • Beautiful views! Lighthouse was a nice climb, not too tall and was in good condition they said after hurricane Andrew they did a restoration and they keep up maintenance with the help of donations. We had Tim as our tour guide and he was exceptional in explaining the lighthouse history and spoke very well! We went early morning right when they opened at 10am and there was only a small group of us and that’s the perfect time to go before it gets too hot! To enter the park it was $8 for per car. Lighthouse was free and they accept donations! The beach nearby was clean and clear! Had chairs and umbrella rentals and picnic tables near parking out front. There is no gift shop and no bathroom nearby. There are a few that you pass on the way before the lighthouse area.
  • The most beautiful spot in Key Biscayne, absolutely stunning views. The lighthouse looks breathtaking with the backdrop of blue ocean. It almost looks like some place from mystery novel. Very serene and calming place with lots of activities to do. You can hike, take a stroll, explore lighthouse history, read a book at the beach, enjoy the water or anything. Love this place. Very romantic and a must visit!
