My husband and I spend three months in Islamorada and have always been library members here. It's so wonderful to be greeted each year by the smiling faces of the staff here. They go out of their way to always ensure a pleasant experience.

Don't go Herr if you're going for the beach. It's not a beach. It's grass that happens to meet up with water which happens to be connected to the ocean. No waves, no sand for digging, not very appealing. There was a reason this was hard to find, keep it that way Florida commerce dept.

We thought this hidden little beach was beautiful, but you do need to watch out for boat traffic and mangrove jellyfish (non toxic sting but some are allergic).

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.
