Welcome to Key West’s smallest beach! Here at the northwest end of Simonton Street is what’s considered Key West’s Smallest Public Beach! Simonton Street Beach is very small consisting of a pier (maybe 4′ wide at best), approximately 40′ feet of ocean shoreline (from pier to wood fence on the left), a restroom (frequently closed, on left out of picture), a palm tree (seen in the top left) and a sign (shown below)… did I miss anything, oh yeah, one of the more popular resting places for the homeless (sorry, no photo).
The entire beach is pictured above, it’s about the size of a standard house lot here in Key West and that’s it! The beach itself is FREE, parking on the other hand is metered. This is NOT a family type beach, more like a book reading beach for one. I personally have stopped here for a lunch picnic while bike riding around town then whisked off upon chowing down a sandwich. Although this is out-of-the-way and off the beaten path, most people end up here (as pictured above) to watch the sunset and then scurry off to Duval Street just a few blocks southwest.
