The first word that comes to mind when people say Islamorada is fishing. That’s appropriate for a place whose name translates to “village of islands.” But, beyond the obvious activities that revolve around fishing and diving, Islamorada is an explorer’s delight. Kayak to ruins on Indian Key, feed giant tarpon, shop artisan village stores, explore a diving museum and hurricane monument, hike through rare geologic and ecological sites, snap a photo with the world’s largest lobster statue, take several naps and, through all of that, make sure to relax and live according to island time. Wait, that list didn’t even include Islamorada’s pristine beaches. It’s on those miles and miles of beaches where the sun sets as musicians play and everyone dances the night away under the bright canopy of stars.
