Oh yes, the ocean, the water color in Key West is crystal clear blue where you can see down the bottom. Turn your head to the gulf side and easily spot some dolphins jumping around in the ocean water. Here’s a great area to go ahead and explore. There are a total of six islands that create Islamorada in Key... More

This was mind-blowing. As a dedicated librarian, I like to visit libraries wherever I go, to see how things are the same and how they are different. This one truly stands out! First of all, the staff were so kind and friendly. I mentioned my interest in visiting libraries, and they not only pointed out what I shouldn't miss -... More

We found this beach by browsing google maps to see what was nearby and then looking at reviews and so glad we went to check it out!! This is a secret beach the locals like to go to and for good reason! Just a little beach with a playground and bathroom right behind the public library, backing into a canal... More

This is actually a lovely little beach with very little activity. If you just want to wade or swim, it's perfect. I did a drift snorkel here and there are fish to be seen, but beware there are a couple spots with a current and boats nearby. There's a sandy beach with a gradual decline and did see children playing... More

There's not much to it. There's a little park and a small beach overlooking a creek. There's a small playground and public restrooms. It's a quite place though so that's nice.

I found this beach by accident and was pleasantly surprised. the area was protected by mangroves and had a small swimming area. Water was crystal clear. I was able to put my paddle board in at the beach and paddle into the bay.

Right behind the library in Islamorada is a little beach with easy bay access for your kayak, canoe, or paddle board. It is very easy o park there and you can swim and cool off in beautiful water. The weirdest thing about it is it is in the library's back yard. FREE! They even have grills there for public use.

This beach is a hidden gem. We were impressed by how clean the park and beach were. Very quiet and peaceful, has facilities. Would have loved to kayak or SUP. Maybe next visit.

This place is a hidden gem. Behind the library is a small park with a great secluded beach and lagoon area for swimming all for free!.
