Southernmost Point, Key West

#8 of 426 in Things to do in Key West
Landmark · Tourist Spot
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.

  • Great place for a picture!! Arrive early to get a shot or might have to wait in line. There usually is a cart with coconut water and pin-a-colada; maybe a good idea to hydrate while waiting. Also, would highly recommend renting a scooter to visit this place to avoid long walk or parking.
  • Honestly nothing much there but was a bucket list item, there was a line to take photos with it but it’s just at the end of the road, mostly housing around. We walked from around Mallory square and in about a mile we hit “mile 0”, the Hemingway house, and the southernmost point. Was a nice little walk to get in the sights, but remember that as you go towards it you’re going away from the restaurants, bathrooms, banks etc.
