Florida boasts some of the best beaches in the world and the sultry coastline of Key Largo is right up there with the best of them – not to mention the coral-reef coastline, arguably one of the most beautiful natural wonders on the planet! The 18-miles “Stretch” of magic links Key Largo with the better known Key West, but it is the former that most suits visitors wanting to escape the tourist traps, family squabbles and hectic nightlife. The low-key Key Largo offers excellent waster sport activities, a chance to swim with dolphins, eat great food – and year round bliss. If only life could always be this peaceful! Having said that, Key Largo is beginning to attract Hollywood celebrities and a spate of “it” clubs are muscling in.

Location: Upper Keys

The Florida Keys are the thin strip of land that runs out from the southern tips of the “Sunshine State”. Key Largo is situated in the upper reaches and is the first resort you arrive in after leaving the mainland.

Culture: Home of Hemmingway

Given one of America’s best known writers, Ernest Hemmingway, chose to make Key Largo his home, it is suffice to say that the beach resort has plenty of culture to offer other than water sports and sunbathing. And the creative community is as vibrant today as ever with the full schedule of live music, museums, concerts and theatre performances. Visitors should take time to engage with the artist community who can often be found on the streets with their paint palettes committed scenes of natural beauty to canvas.

Activities: Explore the beautiful coral reef

Key Largo is a haven for water sports, especially adventurous types who like to explore marine life at the depths of the ocean. You will find a multitude of opportunities to explore the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park where you can snorkel or get close to nature with a scuba diving expedition. Look out for the Christ of the Deep Statue. You will also find other water sports here, such as kayaking, sailing and deep-sea fishing, and you don’t want to pass up an opportunity to swim with dolphins - although if you prefer to look and not touch, you may prefer a ride in the glass-bottom boat. For the best view of the sunset, head to Mallory Square and soak up the atmosphere.
