A few miles down the road, past the cozy

residential areas of the Torch Keys and Ramrod

Key, is Summerland Key. Here, a world-class marine

science educational and research organization, Mote Marine

Laboratory, is exploring cutting edge techniques to grow coral that

will hopefully help regenerate our endangered reef.

Cudjoe Key is another charming residential island, and Sugarloaf

Key, MM 16 – 20, is famous for the Bat Tower, a historical site

chronicling a creative, if failed, attempt at pest control. Largely

undeveloped Saddlebunch Keys retains its rugged natural beauty and

offers a lovely scenic drive along the remnants of the Overseas Railroad.

In Big Coppitt, you’ll find a laid-back residential area with a number of

rental homes and plenty of amenities to meet your vacation needs.

Military pilots train at the U.S. Naval Air Facility on Boca Chica Key,

while Stock Island’s campgrounds and deep water marinas signal the

end of your journey through the Lower Keys. Whether it’s relaxation or

adventure you seek, you’re sure to find it in Florida’s Lower Keys.
