Certificate of Excellence
Midway down the Florida Keys, you’ll find an island called Duck Key. It’s small. Secluded. Yet central to Miami and Key West, and easy to reach by car, boat or plane. Duck Key has a few telltale Florida Keys features: Aquamarine water all around. Glorious sunrises and sunsets. An island sensibility that lulls you into a state of total relaxation – except for when you’re out fishing, snorkeling, paddleboarding or gliding along with the ocean breeze on a kiteboard. The best of the Keys is waiting for you at Hawks Cay Resort.

Yes, you can swim in the lagoon. However, there is no place to swim in the ocean at Hawks Cay. Sombrero Beach is just a short drive away, and it has a nice beach to swim in.
