Colorful Skies- Fake lighthouse at Boca Chita Key in Biscayne Bay


Fake lighthouse at Boca Chita Key in Biscayne National Park

The boat ride to Boca Chita Key in Biscayne National Park is a great experience. The fake lighthouse adds to the beauty of the key. 9-miles from Convoy Point, Boca Chita was once privately owned by Mark Honeywell (info:NPS). When developing the island  the owner had this fake lighthouse built as an ornament!

It could be a nice sight from the top of this lighthouse. I took this picture from the boat. Look at the clear blue water! You know? Sharks frequent these beautiful waters. I saw one too!

  2. Well it certainly faked ME out! Sure looks real, and very photogenic - beautiful picture! I wonder what the sharks think of having a fake lighthouse in their midst? :-)

    1. Thank you Chieftess! It doesn't have a illuminating lens and the owner of the island built it as an ornamental structure.

  12. Fantastic shot! The guy must be a wealthy eccentric if he had a lighthouse created to serve as an ornament.

    1. Thanks Ramakant! Yes, he owned the island so must have had enough wealth for the lighthouse!
