For this Florida Keys Trip, we went to the Marathon Island because it is huge. The island is about seven miles long and has a bicycle trail going fully from end to end. Here is a photograph of the lovely hotel we picked called Tropical Cottages. The hotel is right off the Overseas Highway and the bike pathway. Like most vacations in the Florida Keys, bicycles and kayaks really spice up your trip. Great pricing makes this a winning pick for a hotel getaway.
The hotel is a block away from the Crane Nature Center. You can walk to Publix for groceries, beer, wine, and subs for the Beach Park. You will want to take that wonderful bike ride down the side walk along Sombrero Beach Drive.
The property is made up of a group of nicely colored Cottages, under lots of trees and tropical foliage. The best thing is they are furnished with all the extras, like a refrigerator! They even have a Kayak Launch area dock along the bay.
