CORAL REEF: Marathon has the largest continuous live coral reef system in the Florida Keys, the only coral reef in the continental United States. Boating from our own dock you can reach famous Sombrero Reef for beautiful snorkeling and diving.

FISHING: Whether you go with a professional guide or on your own, the fishing off of these islands is definitely considered 'World Class'. Bonefish, Tarpon, Permit, Tuna, Wahoo, and Dolphin are waiting for you. In addition, the reef, bridges and wrecks are famous for snapper, grouper and amber jack.

DIVING & SNORKELING: From the experienced wreck or reef diver to the beginning snorkeler comfortably exploring the shallows, divers easily find the opportunity of a lifetime.

BEACHES & PARKS: Sombrero Beach is right at your back door (less than one mile from the home) along with several City of Marathon parks. In addition there is nearby Bahia Honda State Park which boasts the highest rated beach in the Continental U.S.

WATERSPORTS: Boating of every type is available for rent or charter-power, sail, rowing and back country kayaking. For those that are more adventuresome try the jet skis, waverunners or even experience parasailing.

BICYCLING: A bike trail runs the entire length of the Islands of Marathon. There are also trails to the beach, around the golf course and out to Pigeon Key.

MUSEUMS & NATURE CENTER at CRANE: Visit the largest native Florida thatch palm hammock (65 acres), historic Adderley House, and the Natural History Museum. Experience a hands-on family atmosphere, an interactive pirate ship, rain forest, butterfly habitat, touch tank, trail system, and wild bird center. Free for kids under 6.

DOLPHIN RESEARCH CENTER: Don’t miss the Dolphin Research Center where you can swim with the dolphins for an unforgettable experience.

HISTORIC PIGEON KEY: Historic Pigeon Key, which was a major railroad workers' encampment during the construction of the world famous 7 Mile Bridge, is a must for any visitor. You can get there by boarding a miniature train (which can be boarded at Knights Key on the west end of Marathon) taking you over the old 7 Mile Bridge.

RESTAURANTS & SHOPPING: The year round tropical climate of Marathon makes outdoor dining a favorite pastime, as the local restaurants highlight their menu with offers of lobster, stone crab and shrimp and other fresh seafood. The quaint boutiques can help you to begin your collection of art and hand crafts by local artists.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Grew up in South Florida, and spent a lot of time down in the Keys. We absolutely love Marathon and all it has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Marathon:
The sun, fun and relaxed atmosphere. A truly unique place to enjoy the beach, boating, sailing, snorkeling, diving, and great seafood. Once I enter the Keys...all my stress just melts away.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is in a great location halfway between Miami and Key West. The neighborhood of Sombrero beach is very nice and quiet. We are also less then 1 mile to the beach...which was recently updated. (Great family beach!!) It has covered picnic tables, clean, new restroom facilities, great play ground, and a perfect beach for relaxing under the palm trees next to the ocean. Our house has an open floor plan and has new, comfortable furnishings. It is very nicely appointed. We enjoy having coffee on the large balcony and watching the water, fish, boats, iguanas and all the wildlife out back. Large 50' dock is perfect for your boat...plenty of parking for 3 or 4 cars and a trailer. Easy access to the beach, fishing, dining, snorkeling, diving and much more!
