I’m not bragging, maybe just a bit, but …….
Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park is an award-winning beach! Cape Florida’s 1.2 mile-long sandy beach is so spectacular that Dr. Beach has repeatedly named it one of the top 10 beaches in America. Dr. Beach (aka Florida International University professor Stephen P. Leatherman) praises the Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park beach for its “clear, emerald-colored waters and gentle surf on a fine, white coral sand beach.” It is, he says unequivocally, “the best swimming beach in the Southeast.“ Bill Baggs State Park has predictably made it to the Top Ten Beaches in America for the last ten years running, but this little oasis barely 15 minutes from downtown Miami, is more than just a beach.
Dave & I go to the beach, our front yard, to relax, take a walk a dip and just frolic in the Atlantic, where the ocean as been the perfect temperature.
Some of the different beach accesses
After a hard day of volunteering 🤣 We had lunch at The Lighthouse Cafe, in the park, and then off to the beach.
Beach access from the cafe
These pictures of the beach are from the lighthouse to the section where the hotels and condos start. You can actually continue walking from Bill Baggs beach to start of the island, Bill Baggs is at the end.
