We ride bikes to Higgs Beach and have a snack at Salute there on the beach. Volleyball courts and non motorized water activities are available.

Go to KMart or where ever and get yourself some snorkle gear and head to this beach. Save your money by not spending it on expensive tours. There is a break wall out in the ocean that you can easily walk to and see all kinds of sea life...barracuda, neon blue and yellow fish, all kinds of striped fish, conch,... More

Higgs beach has changed a lot since I first started coming to the Keys. Still a great shore snorkel trip, you see many of the fish you would see on the reef right there. Covered picnic areas, volleyball nets, a park and garden area make this a must see!

Co-located with the slave memorial and the gardens, it's a nice area to spend some time. The Slave memorial is a very interesting spot with a lot of history.

We didn't end up having time to snorkel here, but the water was crazy clear farther away from the beach and at the fishing pier on the other side. I saw some people swimming, but the majority of people were soaking up the last rays of sunshine. The Keys are not known for their "pretty" beaches. If you want pristine,... More
