Beautiful park. 8dollat fee. Climbed to the top and saw amazing views. Nice beach areas to swim. The light house is not for those with vertigo. Small observation deck. Wish I was staying longer would come back with bikes and a picnic, clean well maintained park.

Like this site and area, we came here by car - the car pass to the park where the lighthouse is located cost 8$. You can drive almost to Lighthouse and park the car in the shade, Thanks there are a lot of trees on the parking spot. Looks like it's one of the oldest constructions in Florida. You can... More

The family wandered upon this lovely place sight seeing before our Bahama cruise. The sight up top the tower was super nice. Couldn't take enough pictures of the different views from all the different directions when up there. If you have a little bit of time to kill find this place, it's pretty spectacular.

This is my FAVORITE lighthouse in Florida! I grew up on this beach as a child and have never stopped coming back!

The lighthouse and it's surrounding area a very fun to visit. At certain times you can also go up to the top and see the beautiful view!

Steep climb but wonderful views from the top make it worthwhile. Feels a lot higher from the top than it does looking up from the bottom.

Went here while vacationing in Miami. Nice lighthouse but nothing flashy about it. You can walk to the top which was nice.

I borrowed a bike from my hotel and rode down and around the area. Although you can take a car in, if you can get a bike and are able, it is definitely worth it. There are bike trails all around the lighthouse area. It's an easy ride, and the breeze from the ocean makes it quite pleasant. History around... More

You have to pay $8 to park inside the premisses, but i is worth it! Beautiful and clean beach, and a very cute lighthouse! Climb the 109 steps to get a look of the bay and take great pictures.

The ranger is waiting for you at 10 am sharp. He tells you the story of the lighthouse and is good at adapting it to the young kids in the audience. Short walk breath taking view: so much so that it is a photo shoot for weddings! Climb up the lighthouse it is a must and you'll be rewarded! The... More
