For hundreds years the beaches in the Florida Keys have held an alluring attraction. Early 's, Indians made their home on these shoreline. The Spanish came in the early 1500s an establish settlements.Today the world is discovering the beaches of the Florida Keys.
The coral reef and crystal clear blue waters are world renowned for their beauty. Fishing, diving, as well as the unspoiled parks and beaches, are the key attractions.
With the coming of people, the chance for harm to the ecosystem has increased. We must protect what nature has provided. The careless dropping of an anchor can destroy coral. Even the slightest touch by snorkelers or divers can harm the growth of coral. Enjoy the beaches and waters of the Florida Keys, but leave them like you found them.

Did You Know?
The Everglades is not the proverbial swamp. It is technically a river, flowing southwest at the slow rate of about a quarter mile per day.
Everglades National Park remains a popular destination for bird enthusiasts. Over 360 species have been recorded in the park. The Everglades remain one of the best destinations for easily observing great concentrations of many diverse species.
Port Bouganville - MM106 County Road 905, Key Largo. Self-guided nature trails. Thursday and Sunday at 10:00am Ranger guided nature walks. Key Largo Hammock is the largest contiguous West Indian tropical hardwood hammock in the continental United States. More than 84 federally protected species of plants and animals coexist here. Miles of paved trails wind throughout the dense foliage. The Indians called this a "hammock," or shady place. A tropical hammock is actually a fertile area higher than its surroundings (in this case the mangrove habitat) in which hardwood and other vegetation grows prolifically in a rich humus soil.
MM92.5, Key Largo, 305-852-7161.
This beachfront park also has excellent facilities for informal family outings and picnics. Sandy beach, picnic areas, bathrooms. Fishing and swimming are the two key attractions here.
LIGNUMVITAE KEY STATE BOTANICAL SITE
Accessible by boat only. Boat transportation is available here as well as to Indian Key. Virgin forests cover this protected island that was formed from a living coral reef ages ago. When you step ashore here, you step back into Florida's past -- into an age before man inhabited the keys and began to strip away the vegetation that once covered the entire Keys. A key attraction is the Matheson House, built in 1919. A windmill provides power to the house and fresh water comes from a cistern filled by falling rain on the roof of the home.
LONG KEY STATE RECREATION AREA
MM67.5, Long Key, 305-664-4815.
Among the activities here, where Calusa Indians lived long before Spanish explorers arrived, are picnicking, swimming, fishing and camping. Canoe trails through tidal lagoons. In the evening, Park Rangers present campfire programs. During the day, the Rangers lead guided walks as well as conduct programs on snorkeling, fishing, canoeing and marine ecology. Once the site of the Long Key Fishing Club, a Mecca for the world's greatest saltwater fisherman during the days of the Flagler railroad, the era came to an end when the hurricane of 1935 destroyed the club and the railroad.
INDIAN KEY STATE HISTORIC SITE
Located less than a mile from the ocean shore off Lower Matecumbe, 305-664-4815.
A 12-acre lush with tropical vegetation. The island's former inhabitants included New York seaman John Jacob Housman, who in 1831, established a colony of homes laid out along paved streets with a lavishly landscaped central courtyard in 1840, the island was raided by hostile Indians and most of the buildings were destroyed.
MATECUMBE PUBLIC BEACH
Long stretch of beach suitable for jogging or sunbathing, shallow swimming, no restrooms.
SAN PEDRO UNDERWATER ARCHAEOLOGICAL PRESERVE
A shipwreck park named after the sunken Spanish ship "San Pedro", the underwater park is located under 18 feet of water approximately 1.25 nautical miles south from Indian Key. In 1773, the San Pedro, sailing under the Spanish flag, wrecked and went to the bottom off the Florida coast. The remains of the 287-ton San Pedro rest on a white sand pocket -- the home of sea creatures living amidst ballast stones and coral heads.
Not only the beach, but the wildlife, make the Keys Parks so appealing. Bird-watchers make sure to pack your binoculars to view the roseate spoonbills, egrets and eagles. Kayak and enjoy the peaceful sounds of the wildlife and view the gentle manatees and playful dolphins that call the Keys home.
Islamorada The "Purple Isles"
Islamorada, the centerpiece of a group of islands called the "purple isles," was named by Spanish explorers after the Spanish meaning of the word "morada" either for the violet sea snail, janthina janthina, found on the seashore here, or for the purple bougainvillea flowers found in the area. The Islamorada area includes Plantation, Windley and Upper and Lower Matecumbe keys and Long Key.
Tucked away behind the Islamorada library is Islamorada County Park, with a small beach on a creek. The water isn't very deep, but it is crystal clear. Currents are swift, making swimming unsuitable for young children, but kids can enjoy the playground. There are also picnic tables, grassy areas, and restrooms.Address: MM 81.5, BS, Islamorada, FL, USA
