Many people who visit the Lower Keys do so in order to be close to Key West and all it offers, while not spending the high prices for accommodations. However, those who really know the Lower Keys stay there for its many opportunities to get close to nature.
The primary attraction in the area is the Looe Key National Marine Preserve. Diving and snorkeling trips to the reef are a very popular and there are several charters available for both day and night trips. The underwater concert held in July is a true Keys experience you will never forget.
For those who are looking for a great beach, they can find it at Bahia Honda State Park. This beach is considered one of the most beautiful in the world and nature walks through the park are a great experience.
Although charter-fishing boats are not as abundant as in Key West, there are still several excellent ones to choose from. Flats fishing with a private guide is also a popular, and restful, way to spend your time. Backcountry kayaking has become very popular, and there are a few good naturalists to guide your way.
The nature lover won’t be disappointed. A large part of Big Pine Key is given over to the Key Deer Refuge and The Blue Hole gives you a chance to get close to alligators, turtles and some beautiful bird specimens. A great bike path makes its way into this area and the Pinewood Nature Trail winds through an excellent habitat of palm hammock. The Key Deer Refuge Headquarters, which offers a wealth of information about Big Pine’s unique habitat, is located in a shopping center nearby.
A bird’s eye view of the reef or backcountry is available during a flight from Sugarloaf Airport. The same airport also has a skydiving concession where the cost includes a tandem dive and a video. Ultralight tours are available on the gulf side of Little Torch Key.
If you are looking for community parks, beaches, there are several beautiful spots to experience. Veteran's Memorial Park and Beach, Bay Point Park, Blue Heron Park, Blue Hole, and J Watson Field and Playground all offer great outdoor venues for fun in the sun with the whole family.
