About The City

Key Biscayne is home to some of the most brilliant, white sandy beaches and offers a wide variety of outdoor recreational activities, including bicycling, tennis, golf, fishing, kite boarding, windsurfing, boating and sailing. To get to Key Biscayne by car you’ll pass the Miami Seaquarium, home to the original “Flipper”, before driving across the causeway to the idyllic island of Key Biscayne.

You will not find McDonald’s, Chili’s, Olive Garden or Morton’s, but you will find small, independent restaurants that are very worthy of your business.  There are many establishments that will please your taste and pocketbook. Most restaurants are within walking distance of the resort & motel on the island. Key Biscayne is only 1.2 square miles big with a population of 12,500 located only 7 miles off the shore of Miami.

Visit the 170-year old Cape Florida Lighthouse or Crandon Park Beach and meet Miami’s biggest star – Lolita the Killer Whale. Crandon Beach is also famous for its parade of famous photographers and models. Some of the world’s best fishing and scuba diving is done right off our shore on amazing artificial reefs made ingeniously from everything from recycled tugboats to airplanes! Amazing!

Enjoy a round of golf, play tennis, go windsurfing or spend some quiet time with a good book under the shade of a palm tree on the Village Green. Here, bikers, rollerblades or scooters can enjoy miles of beautiful beaches and natural settings. Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Recreation Area is located on the southern tip of Key Biscayne and is one of the most beautiful natural areas near Miami. Follow the Key Biscayne Heritage Trail and experience incredible blue waters, barrier island ecosystems and a prehistoric fossil reef. See where the Nixon Winter Whitehouse stood, where pirates hid in Hurricane harbor and watch dolphins and manatee
