Remote island hideaways accessible only by sea plane or boat, underwater adventures and private beaches – Florida Keys is about escaping and having fun; discover the best hotels with Kuoni

From landmark resorts with a fascinating history that dates back to the 1920s (we love Casa Marina, A Waldorf Astoria Resort on the island’s south coast, near Duval Street’s famous nightlife and the historic Old Town) to remote island hideaways like Little Palm Island Resort & Spa, a secluded resort accessible only by sea plane or boat, Florida Keys is a classic island escape. Still-temperate waters, vibrant coral reefs and a playground of marine life make getting out on the water the best pastime on the Keys, and the hotels here really make the most of their setting – some, like The Reach, A Waldorf Astoria Resort, are set on their own private natural-sand beach, while others offer a multitude of watersports and diving, such as Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key whose activities include Dive Duck Key, where you can explore the underwater world of the only living coral reef system in the country.

Key West Old Town Trolley Tour

The island of Key West is full of fun and exciting things to do and see. Explore Key West in the most authentic way aboard an Old Town Trolley that circles the entire island. From the Southernmost Point to the quaint streets of Old Town, this tour has 12 different stops for you to explore all the major areas and attractions, with unlimited re-boarding along the 90-minute route.

See Key West's first tourist attraction, the Key West Aquarium, which was also the world's first open air aquarium. Moving on to Harry Truman’s Little White House which is the state of Florida’s only presidential suite with a rich history spanning back to 1912. The Oldest House Museum is also nearby; it's one of the many beautifully restored homes that are open to the public in Key West dating back to 1829. Stop four covers the famous Duvel Street which has historic significance with St Paul’s Church and the San Carlos Theater. However, it’s probably most famous for being home to nighttime hotspots like Sloppy Joe’s Bar and Jimmy Buffet's Margaritaville. Alight at stop five and see the Ernest Hemingway House Museum where he's rumoured to have written A Farewell to Arms - and don't forget to look for the six- or seven-toed cats! The next few stops provide some contrast; check out the Civil War-era East Martello Fort and Museum and relax on the white sand of Smather’s Beach. Saving the best till last with Stop 10 being at the monument that marks the southernmost point in the US, just 90 miles from Cuba. The tour doesn’t have to end there – you could head back to the Old Town to cool off with a drink and savour Key West with its shops, cafés and galleries. Make sure to stay in Mallory Square for an unmissable sunset.
