Florida Keys?

Jump to last reply

We are looking for a hotel/resort on a gorgeous private beach to spend the first week of June, for our family of two parents and two young adult children.

We don't want a cottage or a condo. We prefer two hotel-like rooms, and I don't want a kitchen.

The most important aspect is gorgeous blue, clear water where we can snorkel and/or scuba. Going out of the country won't work for this trip, unfortunately.

Can we find this kind of water in the Keys? We know nothing about Florida, and are getting confused with all the Keys. Assuming we couldn't snorkel on the Gulf Coast areas? Or should we consider there, too?

We would also like easy day-trips to see historic areas, natural wonders, nice restaurants, etc. Don't want a string of high-rise resorts lined up along a beach.

Thank you!
