Better to visit during the week days. Weekends are busy. Lighthouse doesn't work on Tuesday and Wednesday. Park car fee is 3$

Rode bike through the state park to visit the lighthouse and park. It was a really nice ride, and so much to see: iguanas, hermit crabs, beautiful birds and lots of history. My only complaint was that we couldn't climb the lighthouse. There are apparently...More

Lovely tour of the lighthouse. The view is amazing and the story inspiring. I would not suggest small children or people in poor shape or health as the climb is not a cakewalk, although well worth it.

Loved this little historical treasure. The views from the top were more than worth the climb, and the attendant and his little puppy were so sweet!

This park is a great place to go and relax. Nicely shaded area with picnic benches. No charge to see or climb the lighthouse. Beachfront available for sunbathing or swimming. Bicycle rentals available. Great place for an escape from the rat race for the day

That's one of my favorite places, the beach close to the light house is the best for kids, calm water and white sand to play around, the view makes it more natural. There are free parking lots and the entry in the park was changed...More

We tried to walk up to the lighthouse from the beach but it is blocked, but I believe there is access for the parking lot

Didn't get a tour of the light house because they don't offer it that day, was still a beautiful thing to see! It's a must thing to see while you are in Miami!

On our bicycle trip around the south end of Key Biscayne, which is called Cape Florida, and is in a little state park, we spent some time checking out this old restored lighthouse. Very interesting, nice views from the top, and a video to give...More

The lighthouse has nice small park around it including a little brick house of lighthouse keeper's. Entering the lighthouse was free of charge and only 15 people could get in at one time. There wasn't much queue at 11:30 time a guard opened a door....More

I want to say yes as there was a puppy at the entrance of the light house. The puppy was with a state park employee so not so if that's the only reason why it was allowed though.
