Things to do in  Key Largo

Welcome to Key Largo

The northernmost of the chain of islands known as the Florida Keys, Key Largo is much more than a place to drive through on the way to Key West. In fact, what this island lacks in sandy beaches it makes up for in things to do—from kayaking in mangroves and paddleboard excursions, to wildlife tours focused on dolphins, manatees, and birds. And, in addition to its convenient location within an hour’s drive of south Florida airports, Key Largo is also a top destination for scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and eco tours.
