|About these ratings|
Key West isn't known for its beaches. However, the most bustling one on this island is Smathers Beach, which is particularly popular with teenagers and especially during Spring Break season. On the southern shore of the island, the beach offers two miles of sand and water, with plenty of restrooms and picnic spots and metered parking. Plenty of food vendors also line the streets.
Recent travelers say that the sand is clean enough; but if you want to swim, you're probably better off at the beach at another top attraction, the Fort Zachary Taylor Historic State Park.
