The Florida Keys are often called the American Caribbean, and for good reason. With balmy temperatures, pollution-free blue skies, bath-like turquoise waters and the only coral reef on mainland United States, there is much to enjoy. Unwind on the beach, party up a storm island-style and enjoy some watery eco-pursuits out on the waves.
The Florida Keys are an island chain at the southern tip of Florida, stretching over 100 miles into the Gulf of Mexico. At the furthest point from the mainland is the small but lively Key West, one of the most popular holiday hotspots.
For something more laid-back, try Key Largo, where you can explore the John Pennekamp State Park, or Islamorada, famed for its sport-fishing. In the middle of the islands is Marathon, home to many excellent holiday resorts. Off-the-beaten-track, Big Pine Key is the place to head for eco-pursuits and a truly relaxed vibe.
A holiday in Florida Keys means you can do as much or as little you like. Relax by the pool with a cocktail in hand, soak up the rays on a private island resort, or hire a boat and bob on the gently rippling sea. The waters surrounding the islands protected by the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the reefs are thriving.
Scuba diving here is first-class, and there are plenty of tours that will take you out to the best diving and snorkelling spots. Sport-fishing is big business, too, and you can book yourself on many eco-activities. You could also kayak to historic lighthouses, explore the Dry Tortugas National Park and Fort Jefferson or spend a day boating.
When you’re completely waterlogged, dry off on land. Discover museums such as Ernest Hemingway’s House, funky festivals and rustic restaurants serving fresh seafood. Walk the original ocean railroad, drive the 100-mile long Overseas Highway and while away evenings watching the sunset on the beach or at the daily Sunset Celebration in Mallory Square.
Holidays to Florida Keys come in all shapes are sizes. Choose from hotels big and small, luxury or budget, secluded or in thick of the action and enjoy some escapism from the real world.
The property is beautiful, the rooms are very comfortable. The beach area smells terrible and there is seaweed all over, the drinks and food are extremely overpriced. The staff was very professional and helpful. We celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary you would of thought there was a bottle or ...
Wonderful location and staff were great. I little piece on paradise.
We loved the activities and views at Amara Cay Resort. There was plenty to do onsite. The ramp for docking our boat was not very accommodating. Did not see any security onsite, as we were told. The morning staff forgot to make my child’s meal, she didn’t get it until after we all were finished eating. ...
So many different things to do. Kayaking, paddle boarding, beach, pool, beach games.
Penny at the front desk is great, friendly and prompt attention. Loved the room and the grounds. Unfortunate that the paddleboards were finless so I will do that elsewhere..lol.
