Florida Keys

Visit the Florida Keys

Introduction

The Florida Keys are a chain of islands that run south-west off the Florida Peninsula, linked by the stunning Overseas Highway.

Visitors flock to the Keys to enjoy outdoor activities such as fishing and snorkeling. The largest island in the Upper Keys is Key Largo and offers a wealth of treasures for divers and snorkelers in the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.

Islamorada to the south is renowned for its outstanding big game fishing and has named itself "Sport Fishing Capital of the World". Fishing boats based at Whale Harbour Marina on Upper Matecumbe Key offer deep-sea charter opportunities and half-day trips to even the most un-expert anglers.

Key West is the southernmost settlement in the US and a magnet for those who want to leave it all behind. In the 16th century it was a haven for pirates and 'wreckers'. The salvage of shipwrecks on the Keys' Coral Reef was the business that made Key West Florida's wealthiest city and it soon attracted a stream of opportunistic settlers from the Americas, the Caribbean and Europe.

It was here that Ernest Hemingway lived during the thirties and penned several of his most famous works, including To Have and Have Not, his only book to be set in Key West. The Spanish-colonial Hemingway House is now a prime Key West attraction.
