Lignumvitae Key Botanical Park

Ocean view through the forest at Lignumvitae Key Botanical State Park near Bayside Inn Key Largo

With its thriving virgin tropical hardwood hammock, this nature preserve has been called “the last place that truly represents the Florida Keys.”  In 1919, a wealthy Miami chemist bought the tiny island and built a caretaker’s home which is now a Visitor’s Center for the island forest.  Ranger-guided tours.  Accessible only by boat from Robbie’s Marina at MM77.5 Bayside.
