Like most tropical locales, Islamorada and the surrounding Keys offer a lot that you’d expect… the offshore coral reef, part of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, is the largest living reef in North America, and the third largest in the world.
Perhaps the most rewarding experiences of island living come in the form of small, unscripted vignettes that could only happen here; like spying a flock of wild parrots dart by overhead, finding your first starfish in the shallows, or catching a glimpse of the “green flash” as the sun sinks over the bay.
Islamorada is where backcountry sport fishing and saltwater fly fishing were pioneered. Here, fishing is simply unrivaled, and Islamorada is technically known as the “Sport Fishing Capital of the World”. Catch a tuna at 10 a.m. and fight a redfish on a paddle board by 3 p.m.
Divers from all over the world come to Islamorada for its extraordinary reef line, brimming patch reefs and artificial reefs that offer views of some of the world’s most beautiful corals and marine species.
The natural beauty of Islamorada is revealed at every corner, shown in different lights, it never ceases to remind us of the majesty of the tropics.
