Welcome to Higgs Beach, or more formally, the Clarence S. Higgs Memorial Beach Park, 'one of the most inviting public beach parks in Florida' (Monroe County). Here at Higgs Beach, your group can enjoy 16.5 acres of gorgeous oceanfront vistas, with clear turquoise waters, sandy beaches, and tropical vegetation as far as the eye can see.
This 2-mile long strip of beachfront holds a Civil War-era fort, a breezy beach cafe, and the largest African Refugee Burial Ground in the country. It also hosts the only shore-accessible underwater marine park in the United States. Visit all the monuments documenting the site of the 1800 African slave cemetery, then tour the onsite Key West Garden Club.
Recreation-wise, your group can walk the pier, swim, snorkel, sunbathe, play beach volleyball, kayak, watch and observe local marine life, and enjoy the on-site children's playground.
