Island paradise minutes from Miami Mar 13, 2008
Only 15 minutes south of Miami, Key Biscayne is a tropical island paradise that is a must for any visit to southern Florida. Its not officially one of the Florida Keys, as its name might suggest. This 5 mile long and 2 mile wide barrier island is unspoilt, beautiful and a world away from Miami. There are three parks on the island, Crandon Park to the North, and Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park andBiscayne National Park in the south. You first enter the island via the spectacular Rickenbacker Causeway, built in 1947. You then pass through the pretty village of Key Biscayne, until you arrive at the entrance to Cape Florida State Park. It cost $10 per vehicle, and it well worth it! First turning on the right takes you to a beautifully secluded place called No Name Harbour. There is a small but very tasty little restaurant here, and it is a pleasant ten minute walk from here, around the harbour, to the sea. Follow the road to the very end and you reach the spectacular Cape Florida Lighthouse. It was built back in 1825, and is an awesome backdrop to the pristine beach that graces the coastline of this paradise. The water is shallow and warm, very inviting. Nature is everwhere here, from lizards and racoons, to vultures and jellyfish. Its like being on another planet, and its something you simply have to go and see for yourself. I cannot praise Key Bicayne highly enough, and next time I'm in southern Florida this is Number One on my list of things to do. If paradise exists, this is it :D

Great place, and good see food in the restaurant close to the lighthouse.
Just one correction, Virginia Key and Key Biscayne are beginning keys of Florida Keys :)

I grew up in Miami and spent summers going to Cape Florida (at least twice a week...haha, we loved the beach!). Everyone seems to go to Miami Beach and ignore this lovely state park, but I never understood why! It was even more gorgeous before hurricane Andrew (if you can imagine, huge towering pine and palm trees, like a forest by the water), but they've done an incredible job at restoring the place. I'm really glad you got to enjoy a little piece of my "home."
