Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park covers 400 acres at the southern end of Key Biscayne. With more than a mile of unspoiled Atlantic Beach, it ranks among the best beaches in the U.S. Recreational activities include hiking, biking, seawall fishing and kayaking. The highlight of the park is its gleaming white lighthouse, built in 1825 and reconstructed in 1846. Tours of the lighthouse and a replica of the lighthouse keeper's cabin are given at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., Thursday through Monday. The Lighthouse Café near the beach and Boater's Grill on the bay side serve Cuban fare. Boater's Grill can be reached by boat with overnight anchorage allowed in No Name Harbor. Park is open 8 a.m. to sundown (Boater's Grill stays open for dinner) with a per-car entrance fee of $8, $4 for single driver and $2 for pedestrians and cyclists.
