With a string of islands, stretching for miles off the southern tip of the USA, the Florida Keys are as laid-back as they are quirky. Flip flops and shorts are mandatory, as is a convertible!
Key Largo, the first key, is a water lovers dream. With a long history of marine conservation, the nation’s first undersea preserve, John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park was created in 1960. Take in the views on a glass-bottom boat tour or get a closer look scuba diving or snorkeling.
Islamorada is situated between Everglades National Park and the Straits of Florida. Islamorada, is actually a village of islands - six in total. This is America’s fishing mecca with, quite possibly, the world’s highest density of professional offshore charter boats. This is where backcountry sport fishing and saltwater fly fishing were pioneered.
Marathon is 10 miles long and situated right in the middle of the Keys. Family-oriented, this community is one of the most marine-friendly. Visitors will enjoy Marathon’s fishing heritage and seafaring traditions.
Key West is the southernmost point in the USA. It's actually closer to Cuba than Miami! The blend of Cuban and Bahamian heritage is evident in the relaxed atmosphere. Stroll palm-lined streets full of unique architecture like gingerbread and tin-roofed conch houses. Enjoy sidewalk cafes and open-air bars where the seafood is beyond fresh and drinks ice cold. It's no wonder some of the most famous writers in US history found inspiration here; Ernest Hemingway, Tennessee Williams and Robert Frost.
The way to explore the Florida Keys is by Overseas Highway (U.S. 1). One of America’s top ten scenic drives, it connects the islands by a series of bridges. This is exactly the holiday where a convertible is a must. Put the top down, get the sunglasses on and cruise.

Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
