Offering prospective homebuyers and vacationers alike, an unmatched lifestyle, the Florida Keys is a true natural wonder. With amazing scenery, gorgeous beaches, turquoise waters, a year-round temperate climate, exhilarating water sports, and world-class fishing, this exotic region continually draws new residents and visitors from all around the globe. You will find the Keys, particularly the Lower Florida Keys, provide a close-to-nature atmosphere with a seemingly remote ambiance, while only being a few hours from the U.S. Mainland and the Miami Metro Area.
The Lower Florida Keys begin near Big Pine Key which serves as a gateway of sorts to a chain of islands, both inhabited and uninhabited, that sit in shallows stretching into the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. The shallows, mangrove islands, sandbars, and channels comprise the Backcountry of the Keys. The most spectacular recreational paradise in the U.S. is also found here, the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, which encompasses a state park and two wildlife refuges. This scenic region of small islands includes the communities of Summerland, Sugarloaf, Shark Key, Big Pine, Ramrod, Torch Keys, Cudjoe, Stock Island, and Baypoint, among others.
Stretching from the western end of the Seven Mile Bridge at mile marker 40 to mile marker 5 in Stock Island, the Lower Keys are full of spectacular amenities, attractions, and real estate opportunities. Lower Florida Keys real estate includes oceanfront beach houses, waterfront condos, canal front luxury homes, licensed vacation rentals, and numerous resort properties. Each island community offers its own advantages and possesses its own alluring features, but all have something to offer. For example, Sugarloaf Key encompasses exceptional bayfront and oceanfront communities, and Cudjoe Key is known for its deep boating access canals. Saddlebunch Keys has pristine beaches, and you can live off the grid on No Name Key. No matter which Lower Florida Keys community you choose, you can rest assured you’ll be in proximity to fantastic dining options which include everything from shore-side fish shacks and roadside taverns to elegant fine dining establishments. You will also find an abundance of recreation opportunities including hiking, biking, boating, kayaking, diving, sailing, snorkeling, kite-boarding, and fishing, among other activities.
