This is a beach owned by the Southernmost resort hotel. Watch out for the giant rocks that go out further than you may think. There's also a lot of seaweed on the beach itself but if you can get over that it's a great beach.

Another must picture place! You just gotta do it! Again like mile 0 it's just tradition. So just do the cheezy photo

Worth 15 minutes walk, go early in the morning to avoid the line. Once you are in Key West, then as well stop by to take a look.

THE place in Key West to take selfies & photos documenting your visit to Key West. No parking in the area. There is usually a line of people waiting to take their photos.

If standing in line to have your picture taken in front of a painted hunk of concrete is your idea of fun, you'll love it.

WE always come back to this place to take pics. The farthest southern point to of the United States and 90 miles from Cuba! Plus this always helps me find one of my favorite little Cottage , Papa's Hideaway!!!!

If you want some sun and you don't want to huff it to Higgs or Smather's beach, this spot will allow you to enter for a fee (Southernmost hotel guests are free). Food and beverages are available, and the beach is European acceptable (topless).

Yes. I think they are $10 a day. But if your going to be there longer I suggest buying one of the chairs from cvs or Walgreens for 20.
