Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
Welcome to Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park
Experience breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean and Biscayne Bay from atop the historic 1825 Cape Florida Lighthouse.
Cape Florida has long served as a beacon for freedom - from Seminole Indians seeking to remain in their Florida home, to runaway slaves and Black Seminoles who secretly gathered before taking safe passage to the British Bahamas. Now it marks a place to relax and enjoy the Florida sunshine on a beach often ranked in the top 10 beaches nationwide.
Cape Florida, or “the Cape of Florida,” was named by explorer Ponce de Leon during the first Spanish expedition to Florida in 1513. Visitors can delve into history on guided tours through the lighthouse and keeper’s cottage or explore the park on foot, on a bicycle or by boat or kayak.
Be sure to stay to see the stunning sunsets over the bay.
