Some general advice if you will....

I will be coming over to the Keys for the 1st time in june, staying at Hawks Cay Resort and would like some advice.

Whilst I realise there are some lovely restaurants on the resort are there any others around and if so is it easy to gets taxis to and from the resort?

Also, I expect we (I) will be driving further down south and wondered if it easy to park there?

Many thanks.

1. Re: Some general advice if you will....

Can't help you with the taxi info but you are about 10 miles from Marathon and about 15 or more from Islamorada. There are good restaurants in both locations. Sparky's Landing, Keys Fisheries, Burdines in Marathon, Islamorada Fish Co, Lor e Lei, Morada Bay in Islamorada just to name a few. For parking I assume you mean Key West. If you get there in the early am parking is usually available at Mallory Square, Later in the day the lot may get full. There are a couple other lots nearby or there is some street parking (park at your own risk on the streets as cars the streets are narrow and cars get damaged easily)

We park in lots just east of Sloppy Joes restaurant. Only have to walk a few blocks to get to things, but then Key West is about walking, so enjoy!

Morada Bay Cafe is awesome. We ate there twice last June. About a 20-30 minute drive from Duck Key in Islamorada.
