THINGS TO DO IN BIG PINE KEY AND THE LOWER KEYS

One of the most important vacation activities for visitors to the Lower Keys is a lazy hammock nap. Now that you have that out of the way and are rejuvenated, it’s time to dive and snorkel at the stunning Looe Key reef, rent a boat to cruise out to the 1880-built American Shoal lighthouse, kayak through backcountry mangrove creeks in the wildlife refuge, birdwatch for more than 200 species of squawkers, charter a fishing trip of a lifetime, play around on waverunners, shoot a round of mini golf, explore an exotic fruit farm, lounge on the iconic beaches of Bahia Honda State Park and of course hike through the Key deer refuge to experience, well, the adorable endangered Key deer.
