St. Pablo's is within walking distance of Coral Lagoon Resort where we stayed. The church sits back off the road so keep your eyes opened for the sign on the ocean side of the highway. They have 2 Saturday masses, I think 4pm and 5:30 pm as well as Sun masses at 8am and 11 am. The congregation is very... More

We walked to the church from our hotel and found it had a beautiful garden and was not crowded. If you want a lovely peaceful stroll it is well worth your time.

Family went to church on Saturday evening. Church is small and nice inside. Prayer garden, stations of the cross and rosary garden are worth an extra 15-20 minutes before or after mass.

The quite area around the church is the best. Never have seen anything like it. The church itself was average, but the grounds is a must see.

I've only been to this church after dark in December, when the Christmas lights are in full display. Every year it seems to get a bit more elaborate. If you are anywhere near Marathon in December, and have the time, stop by and walk through the lovely, peaceful grounds and marvel and the time and energy that went into building... More

San Pablo is an active church frequented by both locals and tourists. The people are friendly and the priest has a good sense of humor.

After all the partying, sun and surf ... if you want some peace and reflection ...GO HERE to the "Prayer Garden", it is a very special place in the middle keys. This place and the church is a sanctuary and place of peace for all, no matter what their believes.

Went on Sunday so only walked through the Stations of Christ Garden. We are not Catholic but we have never felt such peace as we walked through this garden. Please take the time to do this if you can. It would also be beautiful at night since many things are lighted.

Wow! We stopped overnight in Marathon, Florida on our way to Key West just after Christmas 2014. My husband saw this church on Trip Advisor recommendations so we decided to stop during the day to walk through the prayer garden with our kids. We ended up coming back at night to see it with the Christmas decorations all lit up.... More

Loved going to Mass here! Parish is authentically Catholic and pro-life. There are prayer gardens and the people are very welcoming. Coffee and donuts after Wed am Mass.
