Owner description: Welcome to Mallory Square where the fun starts and the sun sets. Everything Key West is famous for comes together in this one special place set on historic waterfront. Mallory Square is home to shops, restaurants, and many of the islands most popular attractions. Come for the day and stay into the night. There's always something happening in Mallory Square.

This is one of the key spots that everyone gathers to watch the sunset and celebrate the day. Street performers (most who are very talented) swing into action all along the square. There are also some vendors hawking their handmade goods -- and some of the items are beautiful and creative.

There are enough bars and drink vendors so that no one need empty-handed when the sun finally slips below the water. But also watch your purse or wallet-- the crowds and jostling make it easy for the criminals to ply their trade.

Cruise ships dock here, but have to be out of sight at least a half hour before sunset or they are fined for ruining the view :) Have your camera ready to go since most days the colors are gorgeous and their usually is a sloop or two with their white sails offering that perfect contrast to the sea and sky.

Mallorys Square is the best place to watch the sunset in Key West. It can get a little crowded so get there a little early. There are lots of fun vendors and entertainers and great food.

Love Mallory Square. The entertainment is great. Bring small bills to tip the street entertainers. Enjoy the vendors and the sunsets are awesome.

The sunset at Mallory Square is a must see in Key West. From the live music, to the locally made arts and crafts I can't think of a better place to watch the sunset with about 1,000 of my closest friends! They say that Key West is the most tolerant City in the USA; that may be true, unless a Disney Cruise ship blocks the sunset!!!

No need to worry though; once the ship moves out of the way the crowd goes back to their happy go lucky selves again!!

If you don't come to see the sunset at Mallory, then don't come to Key West. We toasted the sunset here over 20 years ago and it has been a part of our lives to toast the sunset where ever we have been since. It is just that special.
