On our trips to the Florida Keys, having the boat-in-tow with us is the most important thing for fun. We looked at most of the low to medium cost hotels on Marathon and picked here because of the city center location. This is a bicycling island and we always used the bikes from the hotel to get to the local attractions. Restaurant dining is a breeze as you can take your pick of seafood cafes in both directions.
It is a really fun area and we loved our stay. The boat ramp is huge and multiple boats can use it at the same time. This is the bayside of the island and it is a quick eight to ten minutes to the Seven Mile Bridge.
Kayaking from the Hotel Boat Ramp launch is a winner to do. The wind is the key element to look at before you start out on your boat trip. Marathon is loaded with boater friendly condo to consider or stay at Coconut Cay.
