This 45-islands chain, held together by a 113-mile roadway, have some of the finest sailing waters on the East Coast. The beaches are beautiful and the waters are shallow with a lot of diving spots. Navigational aids in the Keys are easier to follow than in the Bahamas: waters are well marked, charts up-to-date. There are hundreds of marinas between Key Largo and Key West. Key West has always been a place where people bucked trends. A large society of artists and craftspeople congregated here. It is definitely a fun place to visit!
The city of Key West is located at the west end of the archipelago of the keys. It's also Florida's southernmost point, lying roughly 90 miles north of Cuba. Famed for its pastel-hued, conch-style houses, it’s a cruise-ship stop also accessible from the mainland via the Overseas Highway. It’s known more for its coral reefs – destinations for diving and snorkeling – than for its beaches.
