NICE KEY WEST BEACH

This is a nice area beach with food and recreational rentals. It is long and gives you room to get away.

Just not what you picture when you think beach. It was not suitable for kids other than a park. Lots of homeless. Gay parades. Just walk a bit further and enjoy a beach with rentals and food trucks. And a lot more sand

Although the sand isn't the best it's a good location, has access to free wifi and plenty of space for sunbathing

This is not a Miami/Fort Lauderdale beach. Yes there's sand but this a place to swim in shallow water going out to where the pelicans sun themselves and then continue to the pier. No waves, no current and no problems. There's even an restaurant in the park for lunch and dinner.

After going to Ft Zachary Taylor beach, it was very rocky, we found ourselves here. This beach was amazing, nice soft sandy beach, the water was not deep so could walk out far. Kids had a blast snorkeling, they even found conch shells.

Great area to enjoy sand and sun. Best park for family fun, and there are two very large fenced dog parks across the street.

Convenient located in KW, this rocky beach with murky water beach was our Monday stop. The beach rentals were useful and there is food and toilets right there so makes it convenient. The views are good. But the water terrible

This smallish public beach has numerous amenities: kid & parent only enclosed playground with tables and shelter; free parking with few spaces, public park across the street with more kids play areas, open field, bocce courts etc. Also a shore restaurant- Salute on the Beach is right there and finally an easy walk to the Key West Garden Club garden...

Probably is gorgeous in spring/summer time, but around Christmas, it was very dirty with seaweed that had a strong smell. It also rains a lot in the "winter time", so I would def recommend summer time :)
