The perfect pit stop on the way down to Key West is at mile marker fifty for Sombrero Beach. Everyone will enjoy this oceanside park for the soft sand, Kids Playground, Kayak Launch, picnics, and restrooms. There is plenty of free parking right next to the beach. We always have a great time at this beautiful and quiet kid friendly Beach Park. Bring your water toys to fully maximize your Shoreline day. There is shallow and Deep Water here, and on calm wind days it is good for Snorkeling. As with all beaches in the Florida Keys, everyone will need to have on water shoes. Other great parks in the area include Hammock Park, Crane Point, 7-Mile Bridge Parking, Curry Hammock, and the Overseas Pathway.
This is one of the parks that we always go to whenever were somewhere around the middle keys. Everybody should have a list of the best pit stop locations to take on the way down. Trust me this is one of the top pit stop picks for families with children. The swingset area is absolutely adorable. The equipment is excellent and kind of different, with a little variety to add some spice for the kids play time. Shaded picnic tables are a big plus if you want to spend some time how and have a little barbecue on the grill. Extra nice is the Kayak Launch, and the local company will deliver and pick up your kayak from this location for you.
