Islamorada

— 4 nights

The Village of Islands

Islamorada, long recognized as one of the world's top spots for sport fishing, encompasses six islands in the Florida Keys.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at History of Diving Museum and Old Road Gallery. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Spiegel Grove and Swim with Dolphins. Step out of Islamorada with an excursion to Molasses Reef in Key Largo--about 2h 30 min away. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Florida Keys Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center, kick back and relax at Anne's Beach, sample the tasty concoctions at Islamorada Brewery & Distillery, and zoom along the surf with a waterskiing or jet-skiing adventure.

Florida Keys travel guide

Scuba & Snorkeling · Landmarks · Parasailing & Paragliding
An archipelago of about 1,700 islands extending in a gentle arc south and southwest of Florida's mainland, the Florida Keys divide the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico. Many visitors on vacation come to scuba dive in the coral reefs, fossilized and exposed as sea levels declined over thousands of years. In addition to being one of the world's top diving and fishing spots, the Keys feature hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, and various tourist attractions, most of them crowded all year long with visitors on vacation. To soak up the Keys' atmosphere and discover writer Ernest Hemingway's former haunts, drive from one island to the other all the way to Key West, located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba.
