About Key Biscayne...(at a glance)
Florida, a tropical island paradise just six miles off
the coast of Miami, Florida, is a world-class resort community
and premier vacation destination. At the point where I95 turns into US1 and continues all the way south to Key West,
is the last exit that will take the traveler across the Rickenbacker Causeway, over Virginia Key,
past the Miami Seaquarium (the home of the original "Flipper"), all the way to the idyllic island of Key Biscayne.
Key Biscayne on the Horizon - The bridge as seen from the mainland
This unique barrier island lies
just across Biscayne Bay from Coral Gables and only 18 miles
(or a brief 30 minute drive)
from Miami International Airport. Both Miami International Airport, the busy Port of Miami, and the action-packed nightlife
of Miami Beach are only a 15 minute drive from Key Biscayne. Some people like to fly into Fort Lauderdale International Airport,
and the drive from FLL to Key Biscayne is just 35 minutes of highway driving when there is no traffic to hold anyone up.
Here are some easy to follow directions from either MIA or FLL to get you here.
The island itself is seven miles long and two miles wide. Incorporated as a Village in 1991, the Village of Key Biscayne
covers 1.25 square miles bordered by Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park to the south and Crandon Park to the north.
Key Biscayne is home to Crandon Park and beaches, some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Lie back in a hammock and listen to the rustle of palm fronds in the ocean breeze, stroll along the sandy shore of the Atlantic,
charter a deep-sea fishing boat, ride a jet ski, or simply relax with a good book on the white sand beaches under the shade
of a chickee hut on an island paradise where the sun shines all year long...
