Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
A small slice of tropical heaven located on the southern end of the Island of Key Biscayne, just minutes from downtown Miami but a world apart. We’ve been consistently ranked one of the top ten best beaches in the United States. Immerse yourself in our warm turquoise tropical waters or go snorkeling, launch a kayak, rent a bike, go fishing or hiking, or simply relax in a beach chair under the warm sunshine. We’re also home to the oldest structure in South Florida – The Cape Florida Lighthouse built here in 1825. Free tours are offered twice daily except on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We offer the best views of Biscayne Bay and Miami from the top of the light. If you’re lucky you might spot a pod of dolphins or manatees swimming offshore. Or commune with a pelican or heron on the sea wall. You’ll never forget your visit to Cape Florida and you’ll be so glad you took photos.
