Key West’s Secret Beach
Welcome to one of Key West’s BEST KEPT SECRETS and least used beaches! If you’re into soaking up the sun on a beach with nothing but sand and only a few other worshipers then this is your beach!
In this case the name “Rest Beach” is exactly what you’d end up doing here… RESTING! This is a totally NO frills place to hang out and enjoy the suns rays. There are NO bathrooms, NO food vendors, NO lifeguards, NO picnic tables, NO boat rentals, NO chairs, NO umbrellas, and NO hassles just sand, surf, ocean & sun! This SECRET SOLITUDE is a dream for those wanting to get away from the crowds of tourist flocking to the other Key West Beaches. There’s FREE parking across the street and south of the beach. So what are you waiting for, grab your swimsuit, chair and umbrella and enjoy a day in the sun with little worries of fighting any sort of crowd whatsoever!
Located on the southeastern side of the island exactly to the left of the White Street Pier (seen in the background of the top picture) & just north of the more densely populated Higgs Beach.
