key west beaches

Ultimate Key West Beach Guide ~ Key West Beaches

Key West beaches are similar to The Bahamas, with white sand, coral rocks, and shallow turquoise water with tropical fish and living reefs right off shore. This is because Key West and the Florida Keys are flat coral islands, the top remnants of former coral reefs. The living coral reef line is 7 miles offshore and protects the flat islands of the Florida Keys from crashing waves. Our Key West Beach Guide will help you locate and learn about how you can experience first-hand Key West's Caribbean beaches.
