Great for taking photos. Every time in Key West we take photos since the early 90's. Always fun. Highly recommend any visitors to Key West is a must you see it and visit this location.

Iconic? Yes - worth the trouble? Your call. There is effectively NO parking anywhere nearby. It is a LONG walk down Duval, there will be a line (unless you are there very early - and really, who wants to get up early in Key West?)...More

Stopped here as a cruise was sailing in the background, beautiful. Part of Key West that is off the beaten path but a must.

If in Key West you have to do it-go to the Southernmost point! Get there early because when the cruise ships arrive there will be a line. Touch it and get your picture and check it off.

The lines were long if you wanted a picture with the beacon but a lot of people were just posing in front without disrupting the line. A bucket list must see so be so far south.

We drove and walked by, and it's abviously and important area in town. We did not stop as it was overly crowded everytime.

Everyone wants a picture here, so be prepared to wait in line. It's totally worth it, though:-). People in line are happy to help get your picture of couples or groups.

This is what people think of when they think of Key West. You need to go early in the morning or you will be waiting in line in the heat!

It is not far off of Duval Street. I am not sure about the public transportation because we walked everywhere.

Only if you enjoy walking and have lots of time. It's a very long walk. Opposite end of the cruise ship port. I suggest you Take the trolley tour, there's one that allows you to hop on and off all day. Since you have limited... More
