Ask anyone who’s been at it a while, and they’ll tell you that the secret to a successful marriage is keeping it real. It doesn’t get more real than Big Pine Key and The Lower Keys. From our pristine waters to the spectacular Great Heron National Wildlife, this is the kind of natural beauty that doesn’t exist anywhere else.

Even our artificial reefs are the real thing. Put on your gear and explore the incredible artificial reefs of the Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary, named after the HMS Looe which ran aground here in 1744. Feel free to marvel at the towering reefs that nearly break through the ocean’s surface, but please remember not to touch them. They’re protected for generations to come.

The Key Deer National Wildlife Refuge is home to several hundred miniature deer. If you want to see them, the best times are early morning and dusk. And you’re more than welcome to capture them…but only with a camera.

Of course, the fishing here is outstanding, especially in our huge backcountry. And so is kayaking and canoeing the inland waters of Watson’s Hammock. And if you want to find out what a gorgeous beach is really all about, visit Bahia Honda State Park and its camping areas, cabins, marinas and picnic grounds.
