Lovers Key State Park
Know Before You Go
Effective Feb. 11, 2022: The mid-beach pedestrian bridge is closed at Lovers Key State Park. The South Beach area is still accessible by tram. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Welcome to Lovers Key State Park
Once a collection of secluded barrier islands reachable only by boat, Lovers Key has become a romantic destination for spectacular beachside weddings.
Previously destined to become the site of luxury condominiums, the land that is now Lovers Key State Park was donated to the people of Florida so that its beaches and mangrove forests can be preserved for all to enjoy.
Hop in a kayak or lounge under an umbrella on the shore. Explore serene canals and lagoons that are favorite grazing spots for manatee and shorebirds. You may see the calm turquoise waters broken by a dolphin’s dorsal fin or by the strike of an osprey’s talons.
Lovers Key isn’t just a name either — the park is a popular romantic destination and frequently hosts picturesque gulf-side weddings.
