Key Largo Florida

 

Key Largo, also known as the "Diving Capital of the World", is the northernmost island of the Florida Keys. It is about an hour away from two of South Florida's major airports. Key Largo connects to the Miami-Dade County through to routes: the Overseas Highway and the Card Sound Road.


Aside from being a popular diving site, Key Largo is a well-known sport-fishing destination. The Atlantic shallows abound with bonefish, while tarpon and redfish thrive in the Florida Bay. Many of the best fishing guides and charter captains come from Key Largo.


To the island's west lies the beautiful Everglades National Park, and to its east is the only living coral barrier reef in North America. The breathtaking setting and the rich wildlife attract thousands of fishing enthusiasts, eco-tourists, kayakers, bird watchers, nature lovers, scuba divers and even movie producers to the area.


Popular attractions in Key Largo include the Dagny Johnson Key Largo Botanical State Park,

the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary and the John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park.
Many of South Florida's events this year and the next, such as the South Beach Food and

Wine Festival, the NASCAR Ford Championship Weekend and the Superbowl XLIV, are

scheduled to be held in Key Largo.
