Key West & Florida Keys

Welcome to America’s Caribbean!

The Florida Keys are an incredibly beautiful chain of islands starting at the southeastern tip of the Florida peninsula, about 15 miles (24 km) south of Miami, and reach out to Key West and to the Dry Tortugas, a group of uninhabited islands.

The 120-mile-long Florida Keys island chain is linked to mainland Florida by U.S. 1, the Overseas Highway, offering a spectacular scenic drive through the Keys of Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Big Pine and the Lower Keys to the finish at the end of the road in legendary Key West.

Once you leave the mainland behind and arrive in the Florida Keys, you will enter a different world with an incredible diversity of nature, adventure, people, wildlife, flora and fauna, and much more. The laid-back island atmosphere will set you right into vacation-mode while friendly and inviting locals will make you feel right at home.

All throughout the Florida Keys you will find a wide variety of accommodation types: full-service luxury resorts, hotels and chic boutique hotels, motels, quaint Bed and Breakfasts, campgrounds, and hostels. Suitable options are available for the luxury traveler and the budget-minded alike.
