There’s nothing like a beach day. And in the Florida Keys, nearly every day is a beach day! With temperatures consistently in the 70’s and 80’s, it’s easy to see why a Keys getaway isn’t complete without sand and surf.
Whether you’re into swimming, snorkeling, biking, people watching, or simply relaxing in the sun, beaches in the Keys are ideal.Go for a run or a hike, then hit the water for refreshing fun.
What’s cooking at these beaches? Lots of delicious food! Many beaches have picnicking pavilions and barbeque pits, which means you can pack lunches to eat at the beach. Spend the day cooking up whatever snacks you’re craving, like burgers, hot dogs, and seafood. Munch on fresh salads and fruit while you’re grilling.
You can also stop by the local beach concession stands for snack staples like chips, drinks, sandwiches and ice cream. Another option? Buy food from your favorite Key West restaurants on your way to the shore. Think conch fritters, Cuban sandwiches, tacos, paninis, salads, and wraps — all to-go! When you get to your place in the sand, munch on that Key West culinary goodness.
Make sure you’re ready for fun! That means swim clothes and shoes, hats, sunscreen. Keep a little cash too for snacks and fees, like parking. And don’t forget your camera.
