Fort Zachary Taylor State Park

Directions to the Park:

Follow US 1 into Key West. Turn right, following signs to downtown Key West via North Roosevelt Blvd. At Eisenhower Drive, Roosevelt becomes Truman Avenue. Continue on Truman, 1 block past Duval to Whitehead Street. Turn Right on Whitehead. 4 blocks to Southard Street. Turn left on Southard, continue through the entrance to the Truman Annex residential neighborhood. At the end of Southard turn left, following the signs to the park entrance.

This man-made beach is part of a Civil War-era fort complex at the end of Southard Street, and is arguably the best beach in Key West, with its typically small waves, swaying Australian Pines, water-sports rentals, and shaded picnic grounds.
