Under the Water in the Florida Keys

August 8th, 2017 1:45 PM by Claire Johnson

The attraction of the Florida Keys is NOT the miles of beaches, it is the underwater world. The Florida Keys is made up of an island chain that stretches 106 miles long.  Many people think that Key West is the only island in the Keys but that is far from the case!  You will begin your paradise excursion the moment you drive over Jewfish Creek Bridge and come onto Key Largo.  If you drive all the way to Key West, you will have driven majority of the Keys and the various municipalities.  

Why don't we have beaches in the Keys that stretch on for miles?  Great question - we are surrounded by the largest living coral reef in North America - the reef system protects our shoreline from waves.  We do not have the musical sound of waves crashing on our shoreline -hence the sandy bottom is not being pushed up to create beaches.  

Can you find beach like places to hang out - yes, we call them sandbars!  There is nothing more enjoyable than immersing yourself in our crystal clear blue waters, socializing with friends and soaking up the Florida sunshine.  

Are you wanting to join our way of life?  The Florida Keys lifestyle is one of laid-back attitudes, community camaraderie, and island charm.  We like a stress free environment, with lots of laughs.  Many people come down on vacation and figure out how they can stay for the duration.  If you are interested in relocating to the Florida Keys, contact me.  Having lived here since 1996 and becoming a full time Realtor in 2003 - I have immersed myself in the community.  Whether you are looking for Islamorada real estate or Key Largo real estate, I can help you find what you are looking for.  Let me research the Islamorada homes for sale or the Key Largo homes for sale.  I know the subdivisions, I will give you my opinions on the area - the pros and cons, I understand the importance of control depths and boating needs. I know enough to be dangerous on building codes, insurances and loans - I will connect you to the right people.  While I do all the work - you can enjoy the beauty of the Florida Keys until I call on your to preview properties.  What are you waiting for - contact me - 305-731-4602; flkeysclaire@icloud.com
