The beach and island in Key Biscayne
The Key Biscayne Island is connected to Miami for the Rickenbacker Causeway which is a bridge of 6km road that passes over the sea. A trip to Key Biscayne becomes very enjoyable because the view of the road is really incredible and the feeling to be over the sea too. You can feel a little sense of who makes the trip to the beach paradise of Key West which is 3 hours away from Miami in suspension bridges but the beach Key Biscayne is much closer to Miami only about 30 minutes from Downtown. The island is surrounded by beautiful and very calm water beaches that are great to spend the day and enjoy the climate of Florida.
One of the most popular places in Key Biscayne is Bill Baggs natural park which has an amazing nature and a beautiful beach. It is there that the famous Cape Florida Lighthouse which is a huge lighthouse that was built in 1825 and is considered the oldest building in the south of Miami. A part of the beach is pretty empty and the nature predominates but with the growth of the region we can already see enough buildings and condominiums being built there. The closer you are from Lighthouse Bill Baggs beach gets emptier. The landscape is beautiful being surrounded by dunes and nests of sea turtles everywhere. It also has tables, chairs and even grills to make a picnic or a barbecue which is very common in the United States primarily in Florida.
On the island of Key Biscayne is the Miami Seaquarium which is a giant aquarium with hundreds of marine species and has an arena where shows of whales, dolphins, seals and many other marine animals do performers. It is also an area of animal protection where are preserved the Manatee friendly which is kind of a giant manatee. Worth a stop by there and the ticket is not expensive. Can you go in the aquarium in the morning and enjoy the rest of the day on the beaches of Key Biscayne.
Another beach in Key Biscayne is the Hobie Beach which is just at the beginning of the island. It is a sweet place full of trees and picnic tables. The sand is white and the water is crystal clear. In the northern part of Key Biscayne there is a entrance to the island for the Crandon Park which is a beach with lots of trees, animals and even tennis courts. The Crandon Park has many dunes and mangroves where turtles, shrimp, crabs, starfish and other animals live. Key Biscayne is one of the best beaches in Miami.
