The Coral Castle is a must for anyone interested in anecdotal history, and particularly with an interest in Florida. The grounds are well kept, the guides are reasonably knowledgeable about the site and the man behind it. We enjoyed about 1.5 to 2 hours of...More

A mystery of a place, built in the 20th century by a single man, utilizing no modern machinery. Lots of lore and mysticism, prompted by lost love for a "sweet 16". The guides were knowledgeable and the destination, overall is worth visiting. Not something you...More

Pretty expensive but close to worth it. It was fun and interesting. A little high priced but kind of entertaining. I understand they need the money but seems undervalued for the admission price

Awsome place to visit. Get your tickets on Groupon(half the price 24 hours prior) or at the entrance. The builder has some supernatural powers and was able to lift 9 tons stones by himself.

Willie, our guide, was awesome. We chatted about theories of how Ed built the castle. He was very knowledgable and helped us find great Cuban food. Ask for Willie as your guide. You won't be disappointed.

I would plan on about two hours. There is a tour all the time so you just tag along and learn everything about Ed and his coral . We enjoyed it very much and you probably will too. Have fun and sit in the Mother in law chair.
