Voted one of the Florida Keys “Hottest Spots”
Less than a mile offshore is the World-Famous Islamorada Sandbar, where you can play and party or take a load off and just relax on a floaty. The water is beautifully clear and, depending on the tides, the depth ranges from a few feet to a few inches. Weekdays are typically more mellow and relaxing, while the party happens on the weekends. Some weekends you may see up to 300 boats! It’s a good time to be had by all. Weekdays are typically more mellow and relaxing, while the party happens on the weekends.

It’s a great place for the kiddos to swim and play too.
