Make a holiday rental villa or accommodation in the Florida Keys your home away from home

The Florida Keys is actually an archipelago of over 1,600 separate islands marking the divide between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. Having been a favourite tropical holiday resort for much of the USA for many years, improvements in global travel have made the Florida Keys holiday rentals some of the most sought after in the world. Travel to the Florida Keys allows visitors to enjoy some of the best weather, finest sporting opportunities and most delightful atmosphere in the whole of the USA.

Things to do on holiday in the Florida Keys

Each of the Florida Keys is lined by a glorious strip of fine, white sand, perfect for sunbathing. There is so much coastline surrounding these little islands that it would be hard to find a crowded beach from a Florida Keys villa, but instead, you can relax in peace and space.

Surrounded by the waters of both the Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico, there is unrivalled marine life surrounding the islands. As a result, both scuba diving and fishing holidays thrive from a Florida Keys property. Florida Keys fishing is some of the best sea fishing in the world, with legendary catches being made by professionals and holiday makers alike. Blue marlin, sailfish and giant tarpon are among the most revered of the 225 fish species in these waters, and Florida Keys fishing trips can easily be arranged from any Florida Keys holiday rental.

Slipping under the waves, snorkelling and scuba diving in the Florida Keys is a simply magical experience. The Florida Keys is home to the only living coral barrier reef in North America, and is located just 5 miles off shore. There are some truly beautiful fish (and some truly horrible looking creatures) to see, and a there are some spectacular wreck dives to be done around Key Largo. If you cannot dive when you first arrive in a Florida Keys holiday rental villa, don’t worry; there will be plenty of opportunities to learn. You can also arrange to swim with dolphins in the Florida Keys, although it is advisable to book before you arrive in your Florida Keys house rental or lodging as trips are very popular.

The still, calm waters which surround a Florida Keys property are still ideal for sailing, boating and kayaking, and with the added flexibility of a private Florida Keys holiday rental, you can take a yacht and sail to some of the most remote and picturesque beaches available, drop anchor and carry on exploring by foot.

The Central Florida Keys are all about relaxing beach resorts and a mix of sun, sea and fun, with many of the Florida Keys’ most recognisable images, from the famous Seven Mile Beach to the beautiful wetland parks of Marathon Key.
