Lunch at Salute was awesome. In all fairness, it was a very windy week, but I was desperate for a snorkeling fix. It did not go well. On a clear day,it is probably fine, but on this day, visibility was very poor. Homeless people inhabit...More

Beach was clean and busy. It's kind of small,but if you're tanning it will get the job done. It was not overly busy in January.

Higgs Beach is one of our favorite Key West Beaches. Its a small beach but its perfect for us with the restaurant and bathrooms nearby. You can rent lounges and umbrellas.

Nice area! Plenty of room...a bit chilly the day we were out wandering around though. The Dog Park is across the street and looks like the pups were having a good time too!

While the stench here at low tide is not as bad as Smathers it's best to go at high tide to avoid it. Beaches on KW tend to be hard packed not soft and sandy like in Miami so you might want to bring or...More

We stopped at Higgs Beach first when we arrived on Key West. It's very near the airport and close to the Southern Most Point. The beach was clean and well maintained. It was windy that week so there were quite a lot of seaweed, sponges...More
