Visit Higgs Beach with The Key West Express

Higgs Beach

Next up on our tour of Key West public beaches is Higgs Beach, a true all-in-one beach fun zone. Higgs Beach is the public beach at Clarence Higgs Beach Park, a Monroe County Park. Like Fort Zachary Taylor Beach and Smathers Beach, Higgs Beach stands out among Key West public beaches for offering an exceptional variety of activities, amenities, and interest points. Higgs is located on the south shore of Key West, along Atlantic Boulevard between the south ends of White Street and Reynolds Street. The Casa Marina Resort is just adjacent to the west end of the park. While not as large as Fort Zach Beach, or as long as Smathers Beach, Higgs Beach park has almost 17 acres of beachfront. Despite its urban location, Higgs Beach boasts a sizable patch of white sand imported from the Caribbean, and there is plenty of space there for a nice walk or a good day of sunning, swimming, and beach games.
