Biscayne National Park

Lighthouses · Islands
A Watery Wonderland
Biscayne National Park's peaceful emerald islands surrounded by turquoise water and teeming coral reefs seem a world away from the bustle of Miami, but the park remains within eyeshot just offshore from the United States' leading tropical metropolis. The park offers some of the best scuba diving and snorkeling in the U.S., but reefs aren't the only draw here. Biscayne's 70,000 hectares (172,971 acres) also include shoreline mangrove swamps, the shallow waters of Biscayne Bay, and coral limestone keys. The diverse ecosystems hold an even more varied array of plant and animal life, including seagrass beds, sponges, crustaceans, corals, colorful reef fish, pelagic fish, manatees, and sea turtles. Water makes up 95 percent of the park's area, so boating is the best way to observe wildlife. Our United States trip planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
