Create an itinerary including Southernmost Point
The very tip of the southeastern United States, Southernmost Point, is a popular spot for photos. A sign once marked the spot, but a more permanent concrete buoy stands at the lookout point today. The attraction's name is misleading--the actual southern point is in a private yard next to the buoy's location--but it’s close. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Key West holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Southernmost Point and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • There is generally a line that forms to get pictures taken. People are friendly and will take your picture. Wait was about 10 minutes around noon.

  • Liked the place and scenic view. However this spot was too much crowded, we visited on New Year holiday. There was a line for photo with bouy. We took some pictures and roaming around was fun. In pandemic people were not wearing mask. We enjoyed watching the scenery. Paid parking is near by. Full of restaurants and shopping stuff.
  • Do you have to go? No. Should you? Probably. It's neat. Is it worth waiting on a long line for a picture with the marker? You decide on the line length I guess. I opted not to and got shots as people swapped out. Watch the water behind as it can jump the wall. It's cool but not a necessity.
