Florida Keys holidays
Known as Florida’s jewels due to the beautiful sparkling waters found in the area that stretch 160 miles south of Miami, Florida Keys offer a fantastic holiday experience. The closest American city to Cuba, Florida Keys has a great laid-back atmosphere, slightly Caribbean in its feel.
The Keys have all sorts of different things to do, you can hang out by the beach and swim with dolphins or dive into the waters for a spot of snorkelling. The Keys are made up of 800 different islands, many of which are linked together with bridges.
Family fun like water sports can be found in the Upper and Lower Keys. The Everglades National Park has loads of great sights, so stop off for a visit. Groups and couples should take a trip to Key West, the party town of the Florida Keys.
What To Do
This jewel-like group of islands stretches 125 miles and is filled with a multitude of things to do. From the only living coral reef in the US at Key Largo, to sport fishing in the Middle Keys, the water is often the focus on Virgin trips here. The Key West Aquarium, swimming with dolphins, water sports and the original African Queen steamboat at Key Largo continue this theme. There is much to enjoy for land lubbers to though, such as Ernest Hemingway's old house, sunset festivals and amazing nightlife and galleries.
Where To Eat
Catch of the day is a familiar phrase around Florida Keys restaurants, with such an abundant supply of tasty seafood available. Try conch, Stone Crab Claws and Florida lobsters for a special treat on your Virgin break. Try Blue Haven, Seven Fish and the Commodore Waterfront Restaurant for top seafood and much more.
