On the outskirts of Miami, on the same road that leads to this island, you can see the financial centre of the city, with all the skyscrapers. You can also see pelicans fishing here. If you go at sunset, the sun disappearing over the horizon leaves a pretty picture. A famous tennis tournament is played here.
I love lighthouses so was excited to see one at Bill Baggs! The lighthouse is from 1825 and you get a great view from the top. There are free tours of the lighthouse at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Thursday through Monday included with park fee ($8 per car up to 8 people).
The beach here is spectacular and was listed as one of the top 10 beaches in America. Rightfully so! Beautiful sand and gentle waves when we were here. There are lots of birds and other wildlife to spot. Everyone loved seeing all the different creatures in the park.
This State Park is located at the very end of Key Biscayne. There is a $1.75 toll to enter Key Biscayne and it is cash only so be prepared.
