LONG KEY STATE PARK
Key West, FL 33040
A favorite among campers, Long Key also has an appealing beach for day-use visitors. Long Key’s beach can be shallow for about 100 yards, depending on the tide, and it has pockets of deeper water that rarely are over your head. It’s a perfect beach for kids. Once caution is the occasional coral rock outcroppings, but they can be easily avoided because the water is crystal clear.
You can launch your own kayak from the beach and paddle around the island. Seas are usually quite calm because of the shallow water, so it’s excellent for both paddlers and swimmers. Canoe rentals are available at the ranger station to paddle the Lake Trail through the interior of the park. The beach day-use area has picnic tables, a rest room and outdoor showers.
