Known as the Sport-Fishing Capital of the World, Islamorada is where backcountry sport fishing and saltwater fly fishing were pioneered. It's where legendary fishing guides Jimmy Albright, Cecil Keith and Stu Apte plied their trade.
Islamorada is a 1.5-hour drive from Miami International Airport and a 40-minute drive from Marathon Airport in the Middle Keys.
The Islamorada area features eco-tours, water sports equipment rentals, tennis facilities, bicycle trails, historic hikes, beautiful vistas of both the Atlantic Ocean and Florida Bay, opportunities to swim with dolphins and stingrays, and a typically quirky Keys recreational activity: feeding the tarpon off the docks at Robbie's Marina, mile marker (MM) 77.5 bayside. All are within easy bicycling or driving distance from some of our favorite hotel picks in these Purple Isles, ranging from casual and funky to fashionable and luxurious.
