Florida Keys Holidays

America's tropical paradise

The Florida Keys is a 150 mile string of islands connected to South Florida by 43 bridges of the Overseas Highway. The turquoise waters that surround Key Largo, Islamorada, Marathon, Duck Key and Key West are home to the only living coral reef in North America, making Florida Keys a divers paradise. Located close to Cuba than Miami, Key West is Florida's southernmost subtropical paradise with plenty of romantic appeal.

A trip to the Florida Keys combines perfectly with a visit to nearby Miami; just jump in a car and head down the iconic Overseas Highways. We recommend stopping along the way to see other sights such as Key Largo, the ‘dive capital’ and picturesque Duck Key. If you’re after a little less driving, take a ferry from Fort Myers to Key West to explore the beautiful beaches.
