Holidays to Florida Keys are seaside kicks and tropical vibes on pretty coral islands, with nearly everything you want to do on water right at your feet

There’s that exciting peek of wild dolphins swimming alongside your catamaran, shallow-water snorkelling above the coral reef and glass-bottom boat tours looking out on to marine life below. Whether you’re landing by seaplane to settle down in your thatched bungalow, sipping a rum punch on a private beach or a seasoned angler heading to a salt-water lagoon, Florida Keys holidays are all about a classic island escape.

There’s lots of easy breezy fun to be had for kids out on the ocean and plenty of ice-cream stops and in-resort activities along the way. For a splash of romance, think sunset piers and Champagne evening cruises. Spend days counting coconut palms at the tiny key of Islamorada while enjoying peel-and-eat shrimp lunches and catch-of-the day candlelit dinners, and fish by moonlight on the Gulf Stream where even intrepid beginners will come back with a snapper or two.

There’s a kitschy, eccentric side to Key West but also lots of Caribbean-style charm. Sit down for a pint at famed resident Ernest Hemingway’s favourite Sloppy Joes haunt, get out on the water above the USA’s only living coral barrier reef and then slink off grid to a tiny speck of golden beach on Little Palm Island.

Go on a small boat to see the dolphins around the Florida Keys for a much more intimate experience. With just three other passengers and our slightly eccentric guide we set off on a great afternoon at sea. The dolphins played happily around the boat and didn't seem to mind when we joined them for a swim!
