Things To Do Key West

The water unlocks plenty of activities is great for kids due to the waters being very shallow and calm, leaving the snorkelling and scuba-diving (popular at the coral reefs) to the adults. On land be sure to explore museums such as Shipwreck Historeum where you can delve into the history of pirates and their lost treasure and shipwrecks.
Fort Zachary Taylor State Park occupies a beautiful sandy beach where you can swim along the 3 coves or bathe by the crystal clear waters as you watch the colourful sunset. Alternatively, the popular South Beach is a great spot for a picnic or a drink at the beachfront cafés.

Things to do in Key West 

Mallory Square 
Located on the waterfront of Key West’s Old Town next to a cruise ship port, Mallory Square is a plaza of restaurants, bars and cafés facing out onto the Gulf of Mexico. One of Key West’s main attractions happens here every day, the daily Sunset Celebration which features crafts, street performers and food carts. The festivities last two hours either side of sunset, so you’ll get a great evening mingling with the locals and be enjoying the party vibes every single day. 

Smathers Beach 
Smathers Beach is the largest in Key West, full of vast plains of white sands. Pull up a lounger and soak in the rays as you relax to the scenic vistas of the Gulf. According to the locals, this is the place to experience a phenomenal view of the sunset, a must-do if you’ve already enjoyed Mallory Square’s Sunset Celebration. Also on site are picnic areas, volleyball courts and jet ski rental outlets, so you can assure that an exciting day is afoot with a trip to this beautiful beach. 

Dry Tortugas National Park 
Dedicate a day to sailing 70 miles west of Key West to the Dry Tortugas National Park, a collection of small islands remote from any other main bodies of land. Around this area, the coral reefs are preserved to perfection and are recognised as the least disturbed reefs in the entirety of the Keys. With sea life in abundance and the corals clean from any pollution, you’ll be enchanted by the experiences you’ll have swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving amongst this gorgeous National Park.  

Fort Jefferson 
Within the Dry Tortugas is the valiant Fort Jefferson, a 19th-century fort built to protect the harbours of America. Though it was never complete nor armed, this makes for an excellent day out for anyone interested in a great piece of Floridian history. Accessible only by ferry or seaplane, you’ll fly or cruise over the beautiful ocean in true style, giving you the chance to catch lavish vistas of the Gulf of Mexico while exploring this archaic military fort.
