At the southern tip of Key Biscayne you’ll find Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, one of the most pristine natural beaches in the world. The white-sand beach interspersed with sea-grass meets the turquoise waters of the Atlantic and seems to go on for miles.
One of the most scenic points of interest you’ll find here in this 410-acre park is the beautifully restored Cape Florida Lighthouse, which was built in 1825 as a navigational aid to sailors. The lighthouse is the oldest building in southern Florida.
For recreation at Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park you can rent bikes, beach chairs, and umbrellas, and there are also fishing platforms and a playground for the kids.
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park was named after the late Miami newspaper editor who spearheaded development of the park.
