Higg’s Beach is one of the larger beaches on the island of Key West. It has public restrooms as well as grills for cookouts, chair and umbrella rentals, volleyball courts, a pier, and the fabulous restaurant and bar, Salute. Oh, and I forgot to mention lots of parking! These features make Higg’s Beach a favorite hangout for the locals as well as the spring break crowd.
There will be a “Ground Breaking” for the “New Playground” this Sunday afternoon at 4:00 pm. The public is invited to come out and take part in this event which is to be the first of many improvements and additions made at Higgs Beach. The Friends of Higgs Beach Board will host a pot luck at the cabanas between Salute and the Fort from 3:00 – 6:00 pm to celebrate this occasion. Please let Chairman Michael Behmke know if you are able to come to the ground breaking and if you plan on attending the pot luck picnic. You can reach him at 305-304-0998. Those who came last summer and fall had a great time and the dishes shared were wonderful. The Board will bring hot dogs, burgers, and supplies. You bring the rest!
There is no reason not to put this on your calendar for the weekend as we have wonder beach weather!
