Review of Library Beach Park

Library Beach Park
Ranked #31 of 64 things to do in Islamorada
Attraction details
Reviewed 20 May 2014

It's behind a library, hence the name. A small park on a small lagoon with access to the huge bay. We kayaked over to Lorelei's for midafternoon drinks. In the lagoon, we saw sooo many fish, we saw a baby shark and a big ray. Right before we got there, a dockhand said we just missed the biggest manatee he's ever seen. Go rent some gear and drop it in this little piece of paradise :)

Very few people except for locals. Beware of the current and boaters - but at slack tide, you can see some interesting critters close up.

funny lil channel behind the library north of the highway in Islamorada. There's not any kind of "beach" there and there are boats coming through, but I can see how you would swim there...we just waded, but saw lots of cool fish, etc.

If you were staying within walking distance, this would be a gem, but not exactly a destination.

After driving by this library several times and not realizing there was a beach behind it, we discovered it on our last full day of our trip.
We signed up to do Stand Up Paddle Boarding with Otherside Boardsports and this is the location where we started the guided tour! It's a very small, quiet beach with a playground and some showers. Great for relaxing (and paddle boarding)

My wife an I go down to Islamorada for 2 weeks every year for the past 10 years. We finally found Library Beach after going buy it millions of times. It is Bayside behind the Library. Across the street from the Hurrican Memorial. Sign for the library is a little hidden by a tree. Pull behind the library for parking. Not hugh but real nice. Bathrooms, park with play ground for kids. Covered picnic pavillion. The water is pretty much a cut through the mangroves. It offers protection from the wind and doesn't see much tidal changes. The water moves through here pretty well. That keeps it clean from silt and sediment. You can wade out to you chest and still not be in seagrass! There were people snokling who were seeing fish. I like it. it is quiet and swimable. More then you can say for other Keys beaches.
