Ft. Zachary Taylor Beach

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by ChrisfromMiami on May 27, 2005

In my opinion, this is the best beach in Key West. People frequently go to Key West expecting to enjoy amazing beaches, but in reality, these are not the best beaches in the Keys (for a great beach, travel 30 minutes north to Bahia Honda State Park at MM 37). However, of the beaches in Key West, I like Ft. Zach the best.

There are beautiful trees with picnic tables scattered among them, lots of white sand, and (the best part!) really good snorkeling right off the beach. There is a minimal fee to get in the park (like $5/car load). There are great sunsets from the park, or watch the cruise ships go in and out.

Regardless of what you do at Ft. Zach, there is one major thing you need to know: It is a very rocky beach. Wear aqua socks so you can enjoy your visit.
