Escape the Cold

Kiss the snow and chilling temperatures goodbye when you set off for our tropical paradise. We keep it warm year-round here in the Keys. Whether you want to head to our white sand beaches or cruise around the crystal-clear blue water, leave your coats at home and soak up some much-needed vitamin D.

Local Experiences

The Florida Keys offer visitors completely unique experiences you can’t find anywhere else. Just a few minutes from our doors, find the Theater of the Sea. Here you can swim with dolphins, sea lions, and sharks as well as meet alligators, sea turtles, and more. Next, thrill your inner adventurer and be an explorer for a day while you discover shipwrecks hidden below the surface.

Break Up the Long Winter Months

Each year, the winter months seem to drag on and on. With few holidays and unfavorable weather, the need for a getaway feels more necessary than ever. Make your escape to our island town and soak up the warm weather. The temperatures of the Keys never dip much below the mid-70s, so visitors can enjoy all that Islamorada has to offer during the winter.

Water Activities

Stay with us in Islamorada this winter and take to the sea where you can enjoy a variety of water activities. Unlike northern beaches, the water in the Keys stays warm all year. Embark on a day full of adventure where you can snorkel, parasail, jet ski, or scuba in the clear blue water. Or enjoy the water from above on a cruise around the scenic Florida Keys landscape.

Winter Sunsets

One of our favorite parts of winter in the Keys are the stunning sunsets. Trade cold gray skies for a vibrant kaleidoscope of color in Islamorada. Each evening around 6:30pm, head to the water and watch as the sky lights up with bright oranges, pinks, purples, and yellows. Snap some pictures and your Florida winter vacation is sure to be the envy of your Instagram feed.
