This is mandatory if you are in Key West for photo ops. Very nice sea views too...Easy to get to and should there be a line for photos it doesn't last too long

Kids could not believe the waves coming up. You may get a bit wet. Lines all the time. Get your photo and run before a wave gets ya. A fun way to start the trip.

Not worth stopping, long line and unfortunately people aren't necessarily considerate that there are others waiting

Go early in the morning for a shorter line as you’ll have a long wait the later you go. Ocean water prevalent during high tide, but not a huge problem.

I was sure I could see Cuba on the horizon! It's seems so close you want to dive in and start swimming. This spot really sparks the imagination!

We all need to have a picture standing in front of the Southernmost Point Buoy in the US. I thought it would be more crowded but, everyone was polite and took their turn taking pictures.

Yes, there are lines to get your picture taken. Standing in the heat for 30 plus minutes? No thank you. We skipped the line and took our picture kitty corner to the big bollard. We still got a great picture, don't stand in line people!!...More

This is just a photo opportunity area. Very close to the water. Feeling the breeze was great. Nice way to start a vacation as we walked around.
