Bill Baggs State Park

One of America's Top Ten Beaches

Return to Homepage

Bill Baggs State Park

Bill Baggs State Park has predictably made it to the Top Ten Beaches in America for the last ten years running, but this little oasis barely 15 minutes from downtown Miami, is more than just a beach.

Bill Baggs State Park

Cape Florida State Park as it is also known, is a treasure trove waiting to be discovered with its scenic beaches and crystal clear waters, fishing piers, boardwalks and nature trails for wildlife viewing, biking paths, and the hallmark and centerpoint of the park, a picture-perfect lighthouse with a colorful history.

Its location at the tip of Key Biscayne gives you excellent views of the Ocean as well as Biscayne Bay, and marvelous vistas at both sunrise and sunset.

You can also catch a glimpse of Stiltsville, the legendary village that seems to be floating in the middle of Biscayne Bay, from the very tip of the Key:
