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.

Places to holiday in the Florida Keys

The Upper Florida Keys is where many of the best wreck dives and snorkelling opportunities can be found, as well as the destination for many of the deep sea fishing trips which leave for the ocean. Trips and points of advice are easy to come by whilst living in a Florida Keys rental villa, so you will not be left disappointed.

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.

The Lower Florida Keys are incredibly laid back! Boating trips are the most popular Florida Keys holiday activity, with diving and snorkelling trips to the likes of Looe Key and Big Pine Key being among the most popular. The Lower Keys are exceptionally unspoilt, meaning that bird watching and diving holidays to the Florida Keys thrive here.

Weather in the Florida Keys

Throughout the year, average monthly temperatures change very little. Whether you take a Florida Keys holiday rental in January or July, monthly averages will be between 22 and 32˚C, with daily peaks reaching into the mid 30’s (˚C).

Travel to the Florida Keys

The majority of flights from the UK to Florida Keys are directed to Miami Airport (MIA), which receives direct flights from both British Airways and Virgin Atlantic. Form Miami, short hop flights operate to Key West (NQX) or Marathon Airport (MTH). Alternatively, you could hire a car and attempt to conquer the maze of bridges to reach you Florida Keys holiday rental.
