FLORIDA BEACH WEDDINGS, KEYS BEACHES
Smathers Beach Key West - Our favorite beach for weddings!
Smathers Beach, located along South Roosevelt Boulevard, is Key West's largest public beach. Spend the day soaking in the rays on this 1 mile stretch of beach. Fine white sand and lots of palms trees make this a scenic beach for weddings. For beach goers there are food and beverage vendors, volleyball courts, showers and bathrooms. You can rent beach chairs, windsurfers, jet skis, kayaks and umbrellas at several locations along the beach.

Ft. Zachary Taylor Beach Key West - A good choice for swimming, picnicking and birdwatching.
Ft. Zachary Taylor State Park beach in Key West is 67 acres of pine forest, beach and an historic Fort. A perfect destination for a bike ride or relaxing walk. The clear waters are great for swimming and snorkeling. Bring your aqua shoes because there is crushed coral everywhere and lots of small sharp rocks along the surf edge. There are showers, a concession stand and beach chair rentals available. There is an entrance fee for the park and a tour of the Fort is available. We also like this park for birdwatching.
Bahia Honda State Park Beach - A good place to stop if you are driving down the Keys.
Well worth the 45 minute drive from Key West, Bahia Honda State Park boasts one of the best beaches in the country. The crystal clear shallow waters take you miles away. There are fresh water showers, a concession stand and beautiful nature trails through the mangroves. The view from the old railroad bridge is wonderful. A trip to the Keys MUST include a stop here! Small entrance fee.
