Postcards from a quiet paradise filled with nature on a small island in Miami.
It was such a nice treat to see another side to the city of Miami. Just below SoBe and a quick drive from Downtown, is a beautiful island called Key Biscayne. It’s serene and full of nature (animals from both land and sea). The vibe here is much more relaxing than Miami Beach/South Beach.
We stayed at the Ritz Carlton Key Biscayne, beachfront and right in the center of the island. We walked south, along the beach, to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, only stopping to admire the sea creatures. At the end of the park is a historic lighthouse with an amazing view from up top. Unfortunately, it wasn’t opened when we went (10am + 1pm only). If we had walked north, we’d end up in Crandon Park, where you can find peacocks hanging around in the gardens. When we weren’t basking in the sun or exploring, we hung out on the resort grounds. There are two pools (one for adults), tennis courts, bike rentals and plenty of dining options.
As blissful as this little island was, we always love to venture out, so we took a quick road trip through the Florida keys from here! Stay tuned for that post :)
