The Florida Keys have long been a rallying point for LGBTQ+ vacationers. The string of islands just off the coast offer ample sunshine, excellent sporting activities and a welcoming atmosphere. The tiny village of Islamorada is the perfect spot to unwind and land as a home base.


The premiere hotel on the island is Casa Morada. The boutique option boasts a private island with a pool, secluded cabana and bar. The hotel also offers yoga classes on site, and plenty of rentals like kayaks and bikes to help you enjoy the beaches. At more than $600 a night, it’s a little pricey but well worth it for the peace and quiet.


While Key West offers the most nightlife, Islamorada doesn’t leave you hanging. Morada Way has a great arts and culture district with boutique shops and art galleries to explore. The Florida Keys Brewing Company is also located in Islamorada and offers a great spot to grab some drinks and mingle with other tourists and locals.


During the day be sure to check out Founder’s Park, the hot spot for outdoor recreation and aquatic activities. It’s also where you’ll find plenty of lively events and live music. There’s also the nearby Plantation Yacht Harbor Marina to explore. You can rent a boat or try your best at hitching a ride.


While you’ll likely spend your time exploring everything the Keys have to offer, there’s perhaps no better spot to rest your head off the Florida coast than Islamorada for LGBTQ+ travelers.
