Sombrero Beach

A cosy backyard playground for Islanders, this is one of the best kept beach secrets in the Florida Keys and is located on Marathon Key. Visitors to this beach get to enjoy the soft sand and turquoise waters. It’s not a large beach but your little piece of “sand estate” can be claimed regardless if it is crowded. There’s plenty of places to park nearby too.

Popular activities on this beach include snorkelling, fishing and working on that perfect tan. There’s more to this beach than sand and beautiful water though. Amenities include a children’s playground for the little ones to enjoy, volleyball courts to get some exercise on, a picnic pavilion for those in need of a place to relax and enjoy a bite of food. and restrooms with showers. 

This really is a great place to spend the day having a wonderful time in the sun and sand. Don’t hurry away early in the day, as the sunsets are an especially memorable experience to be had in these stunning surroundings.

While visiting Marathon Key, take a tour of the turtle hospital where you can check out sea turtles of all sizes and learn about the conservation work happening around the area.
