Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, Miami Reviews - Write a Review
A definite must visit for locals and tourists alike. Admission is free for handicap visitors with proper identification, a big plus. A world away from downtown Miami and the throngs of Europeans and South Americans (and New Yorkers!) choking South Beach. 2 good lunch options, at least on weekends (may not be open weekdays). Bike rentals at the end. Lighthouse visit also recommended, and the beaches are quiet and not crowded (you can rent 2 beach chairs and umbrella for $20, when it’s staffed). NEGATIVE: bike riders on Key Biscayne have to also pay to enter the park, even if just going for a quick ride down and back. Seems absurd. Also, there can be a backup on weekends to enter the park; I’ve seen 15 car long waits as there is only one state park attendant on duty. But, they do take credit cards to enter, LOL.
It's always a good time at bill baggs. Everyone that works there is always cheerful and wonderful with help if needed. Always able to answer questions and show you cool pictures of moments in nature. Like one of a cool shark! Love coming here with friends and family.
I loved it here! Definitely a nice escape from other noisy Florida beaches. No drunk people or party animals. This beach was just a nice, calm, and quiet place with waves, sand, and a beautiful landscape that had tons of nature to offer. It was very quiet and clean. It costs $8 per car to get in but if you're a disabled veteran you can get in for free.
“Beach.. Sun.. White sand...all near to lighthouse. What a postcard scene.” It's in Key Biscayne area, 20-25 miles from Miami. $8 is the fee for entering in the island. There are 2 islands near to Miami, Virginia key and Key Biscayne. White sand... Calm and peace... Soothing waves... less crowd- scenic beauty... Palm trees at the beach making it more beautiful. Perfect picture scene. Water is clear and looks greenish under sunlight making it desirable. asking you to come, have fun in the water... Shower facility is there at the beach and its clean. This is not very popular or big- wide beach like other Miami beach..but it has its own charm... Less crowded... Nearby grilling machine... Come with your stuff. Grill meats... Do fishing... It's all picnic and all in and around the beach... Shore area is small but enough to have fun. Very clean… Water is clear Take pic having a lighthouse in the background.
Very cool park on an island adjacent to downtown Miami! Great for those trying to see the natural landscape and escape all the traffic for a bit. Beaches and views are fantastic! Great view from the lighthouse. Our car of 3 ppl cost $8 to enter. Only negative - quite a few fearless racoons near a few of the trash cans!
