Fodor's Review

The park's beach is the best and safest place to swim in Key West. There's an adjoining picnic area with barbecue grills and shade trees, a snack bar, and rental equipment, including snorkeling gear. A café serves sandwiches and other munchies. Amenities: food and drink; showers; toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming; snorkeling.
