Very popular spot - southernmost point in the U.S., small beach and views of the ocean and cruise ships. Interesting place to see, and nice photo ops, but it is busy, and there is really nothing to do.

Yes, there are better beaches. For ten bucks you can rent a lawn chair but why bother. Walk out on the pier, watch the sun rise and look at the pelicans fishing off the pier. The nearby Southern most monument always has a line so we didn't bother. Get a bike and go about a mile East to Mather's beach.... More

This is obviously THE iconic photo op of Key West. We went here just to get pictures. We had to park and walk a few blocks, which was no big deal, but if you are elderly or disabled, this could be something to consider. It was very crowded and the line was pretty long. People were polite in getting up... More

It is cool to know that you have been to the most southern point in the continental U.S. This is WAY south; like 150 miles SW of Miami. The big concrete buoy is something to see, but not that big of a deal to me. There is a tiny public beach; not a great beach, by Florida standards.

Lying in the sun watching the cruise ships go by, enjoying the breeze and simply letting stress wash out to sea, this is the place!

This is a great photo op while in Key West. Make sure to get there early as there are lineups to get your picture -- also lots of traffic.

Not so much a beach as just a land marker of the southern most point on the contiguous 48 states. You must get a picture here. 90 miles to Cuba and a great view.

it has a great location. But i must admit that the 'most southern point' is nothing more than a 'marker', nothing to see nothing to do. Of course you can take a picture to say 'i was there'. Weird. The little beach on the other hand was clean, the beachmaster was friendly, made sure you have a nice place to... More

We visited the southernmost point of the United States just because we were told the one could see Cuba from there. Not true..! The place itself has nothing special... However, it was nice to have the photo at this location, just because it's the SOUTHERNMOST POINT OF THE UNITED STATES. If you are the type of traveller that like to... More
