Sugarloaf Key vacation rentals

For vacations as sweet as sugar, head to Sugarloaf Key

Sunshine and palm-lined sandy beaches, life in the Florida Keys doesn't get better than this. Sugarloaf Key is a real highlight of the famed Florida Keys. Book a Sugarloaf Key vacation rental in the heart of the island and have some of the best beaches right on your sandy doorstep. Kayaking, swimming and snorkeling are all popular activities. Try a skydiving experience from the small airport, or book a day trip to the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge. But if it's just a chilled out vacation you need, then Sugarloaf Key has timeless relaxation written all over it.

The Keys to Success - Florida at its best

Life on Sugarloaf Key is all about the beach. Soft coral-white sands lined with swaying palm trees is best for lounging around on with a cocktail in hand. One of the most popular beaches is Sugarloaf Beach on the south of the island. While many come to relax under a radiant sun, there's plenty to keep the water enthusiast occupied. Book a guided sea kayaking tour through the Florida Keys' mangroves, a dolphin-spotting cruise, or a snorkeling safari to see shoals of rainbow-colored fish as they swim just beneath the surface.

For uber scuba diving, visit Sugarloaf Key

The Florida Keys are one of the state's most popular diving spots. Located 5 miles offshore from Big Pine Key is the Looe Key National Marine Sanctuary. A popular scuba diving and snorkeling spot, it has the sunken Adolphus Busch shipwreck, which is home to sharks, parrotfish, and barracuda. From your Sugarloaf Key vacation rental, book a scuba diving or snorkeling safari. Back on dry land, don't miss the Bat Tower, one of 14 (now defunct) wooden towers built in 1929 to attract bats to the Keys.

Summertime Blues on Sugarloaf Key

Endless sunshine and blue skies, Sugarloaf Key has certainly been blessed by the weather gods. The Florida Keys' rainy season falls between June and September, when the chance of daily showers increases. The busiest time to visit is spring, between February and May, when the sun is almost always shining and temperatures reach highs of 90 degrees. For the best choice of Sugarloaf Key vacation rentals, come in fall, but beware of high winds as it's the height of hurricane season.

A spoonbill of Sugar helps the medicine go down

Blessed with 360-degree views of the Atlantic Ocean, Sugarloaf Key is a U-shaped island in the lower Florida Keys. A short boat trip from Sugarloaf Key is the Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge. Covering an area of 200,000 acres of open water and islands, visitors can explore the backcountry waters and mangroves, and spot the eponymous heron, brown pelicans, and roseate spoonbills. You can also explore the islands' many protected hiking trails, where you'll see other migratory birds, as well as seasonal wildlife such as deer and nesting sea turtles.
