Sand Key light (Key west)

Characteristics

Description

Sand Key light is located 6 nautical miles southwest of Key West, Florida, between Sand Key Channel and Rock Key Channel, two of the channels into Key West.
It is located on a reef that is intermittently covered by sand. At times the key has been substantial enough to have trees, and in 1900 nine to twelve thousand terns nested on the island.

At other times the island has been washed away completely. As of 1998, Sand Key was a sand bar with no vegetation.

It is located in lower Biscayne Bay, between Elliott Key and Boca Chita Key.

Sand Key light est situé à 6 M au S de Key West, il est adjacent au Southwest channel, un des principaux canaux dans West Key.

Il se trouve sur un récif qui est couvert par le sable de temps en temps.

Certaine fois l'îlot a été suffisamment important pour avoir des arbres, et en 1900  9 à 12000 oiseaux naissaient sur cet îlot. A d'autres époque l'îlot a été complètement recouvert par la mer.

Il est située dans le parc national de Biscayne.
