We took our teens here for shelling, this is a great place for shells, bring your own equipment. Great place to see the sunrise also!

This was a first visit to this park. The light house was interesting, but the beach behind the park was the best part. The kids walked and shelled for a couple hours. Great little find..

My wife and I visited the lighthouse. The surrounding park was nice. It was definitely not key Biscayne.

Biked here not expecting much... boy were we wrong. Great beach. Saw dolfin and turtles. Also, dropped my debit card and drivers license somewhere on this beach and they got turned in to the police. Thank you to the honest person who saved the day for me. <3

As a person from New England I'm used to lighthouses made from bricks and mortar. This was a very different lighthouse with a very different look. It's always interesting to see different local places and it was interesting to read the history of this lighthouse and see the difference of the location.
