Florida Keys travel guide

Scuba & Snorkeling · Landmarks · Wildlife Areas
An archipelago of about 1,700 islands extending in a gentle arc south and southwest of Florida's mainland, the Florida Keys divide the Atlantic from the Gulf of Mexico. Many visitors on vacation come to scuba dive in the coral reefs, fossilized and exposed as sea levels declined over thousands of years. In addition to being one of the world's top diving and fishing spots, the Keys feature hundreds of shops, restaurants, bars, and various tourist attractions, most of them crowded all year long with visitors on vacation. To soak up the Keys' atmosphere and discover writer Ernest Hemingway's former haunts, drive from one island to the other all the way to Key West, located just 140 km (90 mi) from Cuba.
