Huge disappointment! Just drove from Missouri and spent $1,000.00 dollars on rooms for this! It stinks and is covered with seaweed. If you want to swim or spend time on the beach go somewhere else in Florida.

we knew Key West is not famous for its beaches, and we red some reviews here in Tripadvisor, so we were warned, but we headed there anyway, the beach itself is really nice, the sand is amazing, but once we headed out into the water...More

Don't go here for the beaches! Go for the amazing snorkling, diving, fishing, partying, eating, culture, all wonderful! But those beaches with all that dead seaweed is nasty, let me tell you!

So much seaweed and overwhelming smell by the water, hard to believe as the beach itself is so nice.

So much seaweed the smell was horrendous we couldn’t even stay! Cigarette butts and trash on the beach! Such a shame it would be a beautiful tranquil place if it wasn’t so dirty and smelly

The water was full or should i say covered with seaweeds all over. The smell was just unbearable. I won't recommend this to anyone to visit during the month of July.

I found the beach to be disappointing. The water was murky and loaded with seaweed and the the smell off the bath house was horrendous, you couldn't escape it. Certainly not a beautiful beach.

This beach needs some major cleanup! It smelled so bad you could barley stand it. And the seaweed and other debris is terrible. I absolutely LOVE Key West please clean up your beach!

If you are looking for that picturesque Florida beach this one is pretty with its white sand and palm trees. Not really any waves so it would be good for swimming and snorkeling.

If you're in Key West and want to go to the beach, this is your easiest option. However, it's a small beach and there's nothing special about it. My advice would be to skip it and enjoy the more unique elements on the island.
