Key Deer - Photo by Rob O'NealExplore Big Pine Key, the Lower Keys, and the National Key Deer Refuge, a large area of mostly undeveloped pine lands where about 300 tiny Key Deer live.  These rare white tail deer roam the unspoiled tropical wilderness which makes this particular Florida Keys area extremely unique.

No crowds are to be found here at this casual and relaxed island.

Big Pine is also a good location to take one of the numerous snorkeling and dive charters to Looe Key coral reef. You can dive Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary, go off shore fishing or relax in the Florida Keys back country while flats fishing.
