Been living on Windley Key for about 2 1/2 years. There is a reason I've stayed here. Restaurants & Bars are within waking distance from where I live. Locals are very friendly. Nice to be living here in PARADISE!

Our family enjoys biking and exploring nature here. It is a less populated part of the keys, with most of the development on the East side.

Since my wife is a geologist, we had to stop at the Windley Key Fossil Reef Geological State Park. The history associated with the quarry is very interesting, as the limestone from the quarry was used to construct the Flaggler Railroad to Key West. It...More
