Whether you are coming to the Keys for a relaxing, restful break from cold weather to lounge around the pool or on the beach, to catch lobster and stone crabs, to go snorkeling or scuba diving, to spend your time fishing the back country for snook, redfish, bonefish and tarpon or to go off shore fishing for dolphin, wahoo, snapper and grouper, Sunrise Haven in Islamorada can be your comfortable home away from home.
