A Florida Keys honeymoon takes advantage of 129 miles of tropical islands, which are always a popular destination both for weddings as well as the subsequent honeymoon. Many Florida Keys honeymoon packages also include the option to have the entire ceremony catered at the destination, providing everything from the justice of the peace and flowers to wedding receptions on sunset dinner cruises. In fact, some resorts have vacation packages that involve reserving the entire property for events such as weddings.
These are generally small, intimate properties such as the Little Palm Island Resort, located on Little Torch Key just over the bridge from Big Pine Key. This 30-suite property is on its own island, accessible only by boat or seaplane, and the package for this option is called Own the Island. For a truly exclusive wedding, followed by an unforgettable Florida Keys honeymoon there might be no better option.
Honeymoons in Key West are popular for those couples who want to spend their nights in pampered luxury and still be near happening nightlife and plenty of things to do during the day. A Key West honeymoon certainly fits this bill. The island is only two miles by four miles in size, and all the main attractions are within walking distance of just about any Key West hotels.
Honeymooning couples can spend a day immersing themselves in the island's colorful history by visiting museums such as the Hemingway Home and the Pirate Soul Museum. They can spend another day of their Key West honeymoon taking the ferry to Dry Tortugas National Park, visiting the historic fort, and snorkeling offshore. Or they can take an entire day to be pampered in the world-class full-service Spa Terre, one of the finest spas in the archipelago, at the Ocean Key Resort.
Numerous Key West luxury hotels offer Florida Keys honeymoon packages that include many special touches, from romantic champagne dinners to spa treatments. Even intimate boutique hotels and charming little bed and breakfast inns have special packages that cater to couples enjoying a Key West honeymoon.
A splendid Florida Keys honeymoon can occur anywhere on the islands. Many of the numerous outdoor activities are ideal for a couple to get away and enjoy the great outdoors on their own. If you like fishing, many of the outfitters limit the anglers on their boats to only two. You can go kayaking in a group, but many kayaks are built for two paddlers, and companies that offer kayaking trips have self-guided eco tours that drop you off in a remote location and provide you with a GPS and/or specific directions on how to navigate your way back. There is something supremely romantic about silently paddling together among pristine mangrove islands and enjoying a gourmet picnic, which many resorts will pack for you, in a secluded inlet.
Whether you are considering going on a honeymoon in Key Largo or in Marathon Key, you should be able to put together a wonderful experience for yourself. Even if you're interested in hotels that don't actively promote Florida Keys honeymoon packages, don't be shy about asking for discounts. Let them know it's a honeymoon you're planning. Whether you're dining out in gourmet restaurants or embarking on glass bottom boat tours, ask about honeymoon specials and deals.
