Key Biscayne, Miami
The island of Key Biscayne is wonderfully located a few miles away from Miami and is one of the most luxurious locations to stay when in Miami.

Just before the village of Key Biscayne is Crandon Park where there is an excellent golf course and tennis facilities which both offer coaching.

Next to Key Biscayne is the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park where you will discover picture perfect beach's with ideal swimming conditions and soft white clean sand that is surrounded with mangrove trees.

Cape Florida State Park is ideal for many outdoor activities both on land and at sea such as kayaking, pedal boating and snorkeling as well as enjoying the scenic bicycle paths which wind around the cape or go fishing from the sea wall on the southern side of the Cape.

The impressive white brick Cape Florida Lighthouse and Keepers Cottage is one of Miami's top landmarks and from the top of the lighthouse you can enjoy the wonderful surrounding views, the lighthouse contains a reproduction of the original keepers cottage and inside you can learn more about the lighthouse and Key Biscayne.

Travel There
To access Key Biscayne you will need the Rickenbacker Causeway which goes over Biscayne Bay and links the Island with the mainland. You will travel past the Miami Seaquarium and enter Crandon Park along the Crandon Boulevard which leads directly to Key Biscayne. Once in Key Biscayne if you wish to go to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park then simply continue straight on through Key Biscayne.
