Key Biscayne

The secluded island of Key Biscayne, Florida can be reached via the scenic Rickenbacker Causeway crossing the beautiful Biscayne Bay just 10 minutes from downtown Miami (always depending on traffic of course… tip: don’t go there if the Miami marathon is taking place!).

Being a breezy island, its temperatures makes Key Biscayne the ideal spot for popular attractions that blend with the natural landscape. The Crandon Park Tennis Center is home to the Open Tennis Tournament every March. The Miami Seaquarium is conveniently located right off the bridge onto Key Biscayne.


Key Biscayne has a powerful focus on outdoor recreational activities, including bicycling, tennis, golf, fishing, kite boarding, windsurfing, boating and sailing. To get to Key Biscayne by car (or bike) you’d have to drive pass the Miami Seaquarium, home to the original “Flipper” (any dolphin lovers out there?) .

Today it’s an exclusive island with wealthy neighborhoods, although originally home to basic houses built in the 50’s. After Nixon decided to build his summer house in there (known as the White House of Florida) it got international attention as well as installment of better infrastructure for the island’s connectivity. Fortunately you can still enjoy the natural beaches and the beautiful turquoise ocean for free!
