Smathers Beach

Craving a white sand beach and turquoise water? You have to visit Key West’s longest beach lined with coconut palms. From volleyball to kayaking to paddle boarding to snorkeling and more, activities abound at Smathers Beach.

Bahia Honda State Park

Bahia Honda State Park

Bahia Honda State Park is located off the Seven Mile Bridge. From this pristine location, you’ll be able to enjoy the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Bring your bathing suit and a book and relax at what Condé Nast once called the “best beach in the continental US”.

Key West Dog Beach

Don’t leave your four-legged friend behind when you hit the beach. At the Key West dog beach, you can have your sun and puppy too! The best part of this dog beach is that it’s off-leash, so dogs can race around untethered

Fort Zachary Taylor

Fort Zachary Taylor, built in the mid-1800s, is Florida’s southernmost state park. This natural beach with mild currents is a favorite for swimming and snorkeling. The waters around Fort Zach are considered some of the best for beach scuba diving. You’ll also find nature trails and picnicking areas here.
