Make a holiday rental home or villa in the Lower Florida Keys, USA your home away from home

Both American and international visitors are drawn to the Florida Keys, with many tourists coming back year after year. Crystal clear waters combined with white sandy beaches and a warm tropical climate make the Florida Keys the ideal year-round getaway. For those who want to escape the tourists, the Lower Florida Keys are the best destination to head for a self-catering break, with all the same benefits, but fewer tourists than the more developed Key West or Key Largo. Here you will find fewer high rise hotels, but beachside villas abound with Lower Florida Keys holidays rentals to suit couples and families.

Things to do in Lower Florida Keys, USA

Whether snorkelling and diving are your idea of a great holiday, or whether you prefer fishing and golf, it’s all on offer in the Lower Florida Keys. Visitors can cycle through the National Key Deer Refuge, stroll around the boutiques in Sugarloaf Key’s marina, or kick back and watch the sunset from the veranda of your own Lower Florida Keys holiday villa.

Places to visit on holiday in Lower Florida Keys, USA

Beach bums and nature lovers alike should head to Bahia Honda State Park on Big Pine Key, voted second most beautiful beach in North America, and home to a wide variety of bird life. If fish are more your thing, Looe Key, five miles off the coast of Big Pine Key is the place to spot a multitude of tropical fishes and coral canyons, or head to Blue Hole to glimpse turtles and alligators.

It is also possible to take a boat trip from Cudjoe Key to some of the beautiful deserted outer Keys, which can be combined with either fishing or snorkelling opportunities.

Shopaholics will be pleased to know that there are plenty of boutiques around the marinas in Key West and Sugarloaf Key. Then after a hard day’s shopping, head out for a fresh seafood supper at one of the fantastic waterfront restaurants in Key West.

Weather in Lower Florida Keys, USA

The Lower Florida Keys are situated in a subtropical region, close to the Gulf Stream and the Gulf of Mexico, making for a mild tropical climate all year round. Summer temperatures typically hit between 24C and 32C, but even in the winter, daytime temperatures average between 18C and 27C. This then makes Lower Florida Keys the ideal destination to head for to get away from a dreary and cold British winter.

Travel to Lower Florida Keys, USA

To get to your Lower Florida Keys holiday rental, you will need to first fly into Miami International Airport (MIA). Car rentals are available from the airport and it is between a 200km and 250km drive to the Lower Florida Keys, depending on where exactly your Lower Florida Keys rental is located. Alternatively there are local airlines which link Miami International Airport to smaller airports at Marathon, just east of the Lower Keys, and Key West at the far west end of the Keys. Car rentals are also available from both of these airports and they make for a much shorter drive to your chosen self-catering accommodation.
