Take a holiday to Plantation & Islamorada
Known as the Village of Islands, Islamorada encompasses six of the Florida Keys: Plantation Key, Windley Key, Upper Matecumbe Key, Lower Matecumbe Key and the offshore islands of Indian Key and Lignumvitae Key.
With such incredible access to the sea, it probably won’t come as a surprise that Islamorada offers some of the best sport fishing anywhere in the world.
However, there’s also plenty more to do on a Islamorada holiday above and below the water, with artistic cultural attractions, renowned seafood restaurants and unrivalled snorkelling, swimming and diving opportunities.

Things to do on Islamorada holidays
Museums in Islamorada
History of Diving Museum
This is one of the area’s most notable historical attractions, boasting the world’s largest collection of diving helmets, dive suits, hand-operated air pumps, lights and other accessories. The Bauer family’s passion for diving history took them to every corner of the world. As their research grew, so did their collection of memorabilia and exhibits. The museum now has contributions from more than 30 countries.
Florida Keys History and Discovery Center
The Upper Keys are full of colour and history and the Florida Keys History and Discovery Center is the place where many of the area’s most fascinating stories are told. That includes everything from hurricanes, pirates, shipwrecks, sunken treasure and even tales of vacationing movie stars.
Unlike some of the area’s smaller and more traditional museums, the History and Discovery Center boasts a state-of-the-art theater and interactive, eye-catching exhibits designed to entertain and enthral.
Arts & culture in Islamorada
Morada Way Arts and Cultural District
The Florida Keys have always appealed to artists, and Islamorada is no different. The best time to visit the district is on the evening of the third Thursday of each month, when there’s an Art Walk with live performances from musicians, local artists and craftspeople.
Florida Key Brewing Company
The Florida Keys Brewing Company is decorated in a colourful mosaic made up of thousands of bottle caps from breweries around the world, making it impossible to miss and the perfect place to sample a few local brews.
