  • A lot of great restaurants/ bars and shopping .. after a nice day at beach enjoy the night life .. great music too . It's only 5 mins walking distance from the beach.  more »
  • The beach is very quiet, small-town atmosphere, full of condos with a good structure. Have a free Trolley that runs from 8 to 1 A.M. 7 days a week taking and bringing people to the "village center" of restaurants, bars, cafes and souvenir shops. The sea is quiet, clean and warm water. Very safe. Malls, Target and restaurants like Olive Garden are the 10/20 minute drive, leaving the Key. In the village we recommend The Hub, the Gilligan's Island Bar and Grill and ice cream shop Big Olaf ' s. Great options in Tex-Mex food, drinks and delicious ice cream. We will return for sure! Must-see programs in family: sunset on the beach, rent bikes and walk on the beach on bicycle paths and streets.
