Key West Beaches - A Key West Beach Guide

Key West beaches provide a wonderful opportunity to experience first-hand Caribbean style coral reef beaches. This is because Key West and the Florida Keys are flat coral islands, the top remnants of former coral reefs. Key West beaches are similar to The Bahamas, with white sand, coral rocks, and shallow turquoise water with tropical fish right off shore. The living coral reef line is 7 miles offshore and protects the flat islands of the Florida Keys from crashing waves. So when you plan your Key West beach days, don’t think ‘long stretches of beaches with crashing waves’ like you find on the main land of Florida. Think ‘Caribbean beach vacation.’ And as a bonus - Remember, beyond the white sand beaches of Key West, you can explore the underwater offshore coral reefs on the Atlantic side and immerse yourself on the Gulf of Mexico side of the island in Key West’s ‘Back Country.’
