This was not our kind of beach, in fact, not really a beach. The water was filled with plant life and not good for us to swim in. Water was warm to the touch. Sand was more like sandy dirt. Just not our type of beach.
We prefer Smathers beach over Higgs. Higgs is much smaller and also has lots of seaweed (as almost all the beaches in the keys do). Higgs beach does have a restaurant and playground close by, which might make it better for families/kids. They also have a pier with ladders into the water so you walk out and get in the... 更多
Like someone else said, you don't come to Key West for the beaches. This is I believe the best beach on the Key and it's disappointing if you compare it to other south Florida beaches.

The beaches here in Key West are not that good at all. Make sure you find a excellent pool in a good hotel if your wanting to work on your tan or just swim for awhile. Upper Keys have some nicer private beaches if you come for a weekly rental.

One is a beach "sitter" and umbrella and chair rentals were readily available($20 for 2 chairs and one umbrella all day).The other loves to snorkel and there was very good snorkeling just off the pier along the pylons. There were rest room facilities available as well as a nice place for lunch (... 更多
This goes for all beaches in Keywest; not worth the trip. If you're heading out to Dry Tortuga National Park or snorkeling, then yes, get over here. But if you just want to lay on the beach, then stay in Miami South Beach. It's smelly, and the water doesn't look clean. Whatever pictures you've looked at and it looks very... 更多
The beach is full of sea vegetation and smells bad. But the swimming pier is nice, and the water, while not clear, was fun for wading around. They told us not to wade in from the beach, because of coral. Two chairs and an umbrella for $20, which seemed reasonable.
