The warm waters and natural shoreline of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park make it frequently ranked as one of the top 10 beaches in the U.S. More than 760,000 visitors a year enjoy sunbathing, swimming, picnicking, camping, hiking and kayaking at the park, which features the Cape Florida Lighthouse, the oldest structure in South Florida, built in 1825. The State of Florida used a National Park Service Land and Water Conservation Fund matching grant with its $2,250,000 investment to buy the park. Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park includes 428 acres of land with 1.25 miles of beach on the southern tip of Key Biscayne. It is preserved as a natural oasis near the densely populated, urban Miami-Dade County.
