Key West Beaches Fort Zachary Taylor    

 

 


Getting there can be a challenge the first time. It's a the end of Southard St. You will almost think you can't get in. There is a guard house at the edge of a gated community. Just tell him you are going to Fort Zach and he will wave you on. Keep following the signs and you will get there. Fort Zachary is a State Park so there is an admission to get in. It has plenty of parking one lot for the fort, and two others for the beach. With a couple of out side showers. A dressing room next to the concession stand. This Key West beach is very rocky in places so a pair of beach shoes is recommended. The water is deep enough to swim and snorkeling You will notice big piles of rocks off shore and in the jetties. These are very good spots to snorkel with a large varieties of adult fish hanging out in the large cracks between rocks. You will have to bring your own Snorkel and mask. Just off the beach you will find a large picnic area under the shade of pine trees to relax and enjoy yourself at the beach.

 

Be sure to check out the fort while you are out there. A must stop for the family
is the Eco Discovery Center it is to the right of the main gate going into the park.
It has lots of exhibits for the kids young and old.
