Tours for Coral Castle
About Coral Castle, Miami
The Castle is one of the most curious things in the world. Latvian American Edward Leedskalnin, on being dumped by his fiancee, decided to focus his efforts in building this amazing piece of modern art. Over a period of twenty eight years, he hewed out 1100 tonnes of stones in the form of walls, furniture, the date and the tower. The mind-boggler is that no one knows how he did it. Secretive about his methods, he used no standard machinery that we know of, yet his carvings are incredibly precise. He used no mortar to stack his creations, yet no light passes through the gap between them. Most of the stones he used weigh 15 tonnes or more. How in the world did he move them? Constructs of note include an accurate sundial, a telescope, a barbeque, a well, a fountain and an immense eight foot tall, 8 tonne gate, so precisely balanced on ball bearings that it swung at a child’s touch. When asked how he did it, Ed replied that he “truly understood the laws of leverage” and that he’d discovered the secret of the pyramids. Coral Castle is one of the attractions in 4 Days Itinerary Miami. Must visit this awesome attraction.

I love this place. I've been there several times. It may be small, but it's very interesting. We had a great tour guide. Love taking pictures there. I've read about Coral Castle and also seen documentary on it. Amazing how a 5 feet tall 105 pound man could build this place all alone with coral rocks weighing thousands of pounds.
I saw several bad reviews and still came with the family. My mom has been talking about coming here for years and we decided this was they year. We had a great guide that took us through the whole place and talked about everything. It was really cool to see where the man lived and he had such a small area he called his room. He had made his own electricity and had his own water supply. Really was interesting to hear about it all. The staff I talked to were all very nice and most are retires from around the area. They encourage you to explore the place on your own after you were given the guided tour so you can hear everything first.
Had a great time! We went on 3 tours which gave us 3 different perspectives. Very informative and entertaining. Tour guide Willy, Jerry, and a lovely young woman Phapha. It's entirely outdoors so be prepared for that South Florida heat! We had hats, sunglasses, water, and even took an umbrella. Luckily they provide complimentary umbrellas during the tour so that's pretty cool.
The name of the place is a misnomer. It should be "Coral Garden". As of 10/01/2017 the restaurant and gift shop are closed due to Irma damage. Entry now is just $10, I guess until they reopen both. The place is small but worth it. The tour, included in the admission, very informative. It seems like tipping the tour guide is not done.
Definitely a place to visit it is fascinating what this man did in building his Coral Castle. The guided tour is very interesting. I've lived in the area for many years and never bothered to visit and I'm glad I finally did. It's worth the drive.
