Description

Elliott Key is a popular spot for boaters on day trips, and also for overnight camping in the winter. It is by far the largest island in Biscayne National Park, but most visitors only spend time in the small marina and campground area. If you want to explore more, you can walk this short loop from the campground. The trail goes through leafy maritime forest and finds a few secluded sand beaches on both the ocean and bay sides of the island.
