Luxury Florida Keys Holidays


The Florida Keys are a slice of tropical paradise. This archipelago includes over 1,000 low-level, sandy islands with 43 of these islands connected by impressive bridges. Glorious white beaches fringe every coast and the world’s third largest barrier reef creates a haven for tropical fish. Luxury Florida Keys holidays offer relaxation and brilliant water-based activities like fishing and scuba diving.

Situated along the Florida Straits, the Florida Keys will capture your imagination and heart. On the archipelago’s southernmost island – Key West, you'll find a charming old town with quaint pastel-coloured buildings and the famous Duval Street. On Key West, you’ll also find art galleries, shops selling delicious key lime pie, lots of upmarket boutiques and the Key West Aquarium which offers you the opportunity to interact with local sea life.

Head northeast to Islamorada, which encompasses six of the Florida Key Island. Islamorada is known as the sport fishing capital of the world, and a fishing trip should not be missed, especially with giant amberjack and tuna to catch. Likewise, this is a great place to snorkel and dive nearby coral reefs. You can also admire masterpieces at Morada Way Art, visit the Cultural District for live music, arts and crafts, or unwind on stunning beaches like Founders Park Public Beach and Anne's Beach.

Travel northeast to Key Largo, where you’ll discover one of the world's largest artificial reefs made from the shipwreck of the 510-foot USS Spiegel Grove. Other water activities include swimming with dolphins at dolphin sanctuaries, exploring hidden coves on a kayak or sailing the Everglades National Park. On land, you can walk through mangrove trails at one of the island’s many nature parks.
