If the sun, sand, and water of the Florida Keys is calling your name, consider spending your next vacation on Cudjoe Key, FL, where you'll find all the water sports the Keys are known for in a spot that's a bit less traveled, giving you a chance to wrap yourself in Florida's beautiful natural surroundings and reconnect with your family, friends and yourself. What better way to revel in the soothing benefits of the Keys than to stay in one of our cozy vacation rentals?
This small key is located between Sugarloaf Key and Big Pine Key in the lower reaches of Florida's famous island chain. To get here, simply follow US Highway 1 from Miami for 140 miles, or make the 20-mile drive from diverse and exciting Key West if you're coming the other way.
This island is also home to the Cudjoe Key Air Force Station, where you will see the notorious Fat Albert. A long white blimp, Fat Albert is used by the US Federal government to patrol boat traffic and aircraft using radar devices.
Get out on the water with a charter excursion or rent a boat and captain your own ship. Drop your line starboard and catch a tarpon or shark, or get beneath the surface of the sparkling waters and do some snorkeling or diving. Paddle your way through the channels in a kayak, or rent a bike and peddle peacefully through a tropical paradise.
Looking for relaxation? Indulge yourself at Angelic Moon Holistic Day Spa. The only green-focused day spa in the Keys, Angelic Moon uses natural, organic, fair-trade ingredients in all their treatments, with an eye on a whole-person approach to bringing you to a state of blissful relaxation and rejuvenation.
Take an easy, breezy day trip to Summerland Key, four miles away, for an eco tour or to check out the reefs. No matter how you fill your days on Cudjoe Key, you'll be happy to return to your own private vacation rental to savor a freshly cooked meal and enjoy the comforts of home.
