Higgs Beach



Not far from Duval Street in Old Town Key West is Higgs Beach, a popular spot to soak in some rays and take a dip in the shallow water. Amenities include tennis courts, volleyball courts, children's playground and a dog park, and White Street Pier extends far past the sand for stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. (The end of the pier is also a great spot for kids to toss bread in the water for the fish). Tropical Water Sports, a beach concessionaire, offers a broad array of beach accessories for rent including beach chairs, umbrellas, kayaks and paddle-boards. Don't miss the Key West AIDS Memorial, as well as the African Cemetery where victims of the Transatlantic slave trade are buried. If you're feeling peckish, check out Salute on the Beach, a lovely seaside bar and restaurant.
