Three Astonishing days at Key West Island

The first island I ever visited and the experience was magnificent!


Key West is a Florida's Southernmost Paradise, a idiosyncratic convergence of natural beauty, architecture, history and audacious romantic charm, lying roughly 90 miles north of Cuba. Key West is famous for watersports, lively nightlife, beaches and historic sites.
       It is just a 4 hours drive from Miami on the scenic coastal  overseas Highway with plenty of interesting things to do during the 110 mile trip, crossing about 42 different bridges.

We spent 3 days exploring the Key West, with family friends.

Things to do in key West
Accommodation and food :
          We were in Key West, We stayed at the Key West Marriott Beachside.

* Southernmost Point :
          If you go to Key West you have to visit this monument. Long queues to have your picture made but worth it. The southernmost point in the United States, I have always wanted to check this off my bucket list, and we did this. The water is so beautiful and Mosaic in blues, breathtaking.



* Key West Beaches :
           Key West has many different Beaches. Peaceful place, the beaches are very nice and white sand and Crystal clear water. Just relax and enjoy the ocean.



* Sunrise at Key West :
           It would be beautiful from anywhere in the Key West to see sunrise. We (McDreamy and me) just wanted to relax while seeing the sunrise before us. That would be ideal. Take a cup of tea or coffee and sit on the sea wall to view beautiful sunrise.
Early sunbathing during key West sunrise.



* Duval Street :
           A must to walk up and down Duval street. One of the most energetic strips of shops, bars and cafes in all the land. There is plenty of stuff to buy, mostly souvenirs and trinkets from street vendors.
* Mallory Square :
             It's just an open area at the end of the island and also a gathering point to watch the sunset. Savor a key West sunset at Mallory Square. There are many fascinating and talented street performers, jugular who jump through burning hoops and walk on a tightrope and also arts and
crafts vendors.





* Caribbean Food :
Experience a taste of Caribbean culture in Key West.

* Sunset Sail Key West / Boat Tours :
               When you just want to quietly enjoy the beautiful Key West sunset, there is no better way than sailing out on a private charter sloop. To watch the sun drops below the Gulf of Mexico, painting the sky in vibrant shades of pink, yellow and orange.



What to wear?
*Clothes :
  • I would like to suggest cotton material, which could move and breathe well, as Key West is hot and humid. Shorts and breezy tanks would be other go to.
*Sandals :
  • I would like to prefer flat sandals, when you are roaming around in day time.
*Sunglasses :
  • Must to wear sunglasses, due to sunny days and very hot and humid climate.
*Bag / Purse :
  • When you are roaming around and dancing you need your hands free, so wear a cross body bag, so this will help you to not leave your wallet, id laying around.

          As the sun set on our 3 days trip to Key West, we were disappointed to have to say goodbye. Our time in Key West, were favorite time. Honestly, looking back through all of this pictures is making me want to go many more times.

Thank you for stopping by, would love to hear from you!
