Key West Places to Stay (when you’re not fishing)
If you’re searching for places to stay in Key West, you may already be hooked on the fishing. Key West is and always has been a premier fishing town. The island is situated where the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico merge. For anglers, this is fishermen’s paradise. Unlike many coastal towns, you do not have to go far from the island of Key West to be in prime fishing territory. You can fight sailfish and tarpon by day and tell tall tales at Sloppy Joe’s Bar by night. Hemingway did just that throughout the 1930s. Today, you can have your own ‘Old Key West’ experience. A day in the sun might knock you out, but a night at any of our four SUN properties may be just the cure.
There is fishing for people of all ages and experience levels in Key West. If you are on the hunt for sport fish, you can venture into blue water on the reef for trophy sailfish, tuna or wahoo. Or, if the serene backcountry is more your speed, you’ll love fishing for permit and bonefish in the clear, calm waters.
If you’ve never fished, you’ll be in great hands with the charter captains. And if you prefer to stay on land, there is no shortage of things to do. From shopping and sightseeing to dining and nightlife, Key West truly does have something for everyone. Any one of those activities is a reason to travel to a destination, but Key West has perfected them all.
