Create an itinerary including Boca Chita Key
Boca Chita Key is the island north of the upper Florida Keys in Biscayne National Park, Miami-Dade County, Florida.

The key is located in Biscayne Bay, just north of Sands Key. An ornamental 65-foot (20 m) lighthouse is present on the key. The harbor has a bulkhead with cleats where boats may be tied. There is a campground with picnic tables and salt water toilets. Fresh water and electricity are not available on the island.
On the north-west part of the island is the Boca Chita Key Historic District containing historic structures such as the Boca Chita lighthouse.

This key is sometimes confused with the similar-sounding Boca Chica Key over a hundred miles southwest on the lower Florida Keys.
A visit to Boca Chita Key represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Biscayne National Park online tour itinerary maker to plot your vacation.
