Most of the Florida Keys are not known for their white sandy beaches. Since our shores are protected from erosion by the coral reef that runs parallel to the Keys, some of our beaches are not naturally sandy. People come to the Florida Keys for a "Florida Keys Vacation" which often includes time spent at the beach, but not usually the main focus of their vacation. It is important that you come to the Florida Keys for what they are, and not expect them to be like anywhere else you have ever been. If you are used to miles and miles of Sandy Beaches, you might not consider the Florida Keys the ideal "Beach" vacation. There is so much more than just a beach vacation here for you in the Beautiful Florida Keys!
The finest beach in the Florida Keys is Bahia Honda State Park and Beach on the links below. Located 30 minutes outside of Key West in an area of mainly Monthly rentals, it is convenient to Key West and worth a visit early in your stay if you have a rental car, as you just might visit Bahia Honda more than once. It is even woth renting a car for the day to visit this beautiful park, voted among the top ten State Parks in the USA every few years!
In addition to the beaches on the list below, there are also two other beach options worth mentioning in Key West:
Higg's Beach and Rest Beach are on the Atlantic Ocean side of the Island in Mid-Town, between the White Street Pier and the Casa Marina hotel. Here you fill find watersports & chair rentals, a restaurant, beach volleyball courts and tennis courts, and lots of palms to provide relief from the sun.
South Beach in Old Town is at the Southern end of Duval Street, around the corner from the Southernmost Point. Restaurant and Bar on the Sandy Beach. It is a small beach that will refresh you in the middle of your city tours or shopping.
