Getting Around the Lower Keys


Getting Around the Lower Keys

The Lower Keys in this section include the keys between MM 37 and MM 9. The Seven Mile Bridge drops you into the lap of this homey, quiet part of the Keys.

Heed speed limits in these parts. They may seem incredibly strict given that the traffic is lightest of anywhere in the Keys, but the purpose is to protect the resident Key deer population, and officers of the law pay strict attention and will readily issue speeding tickets.

Top 5

Watch for Key deer and other wildlife at the Blue Hole in National Key Deer Refuge.

Explore the beach and trails then camp for the night at Bahia Honda State Park.

Get out in a kayak to spot birds in the Keys' backcountry wildlife refuges.

Grab a mask and fins, and head to Looe Key Reef to see amazing coral formations and fish so bright and animated they look like cartoons.

Cast from a bridge, boat, or shoreline flats for bonefish, tarpon, and other feisty catches.
