    Big Pine Key keeps a low profile

    Big Pine Key is a genuine treasure among the keys strung so prettily from Florida's southern tip. Most only know it as a place name whistling by, as they drive on through to Key West. But Big Pine Key is the very definition of a laid-back, low-key destination. Those thinking of booking Big Pine Key vacation rentals can look forward to simple pleasures. Tranquil boats trips, sublime snorkeling adventures, and chilled sunset vistas—often with the tiny, rare (and exceptionally cute) Key deer skittering in the background.

    Getting wet is essential in Big Pine Key

    Much of the interest on this pristine key lies in the surrounding aqua-and-pearl waters. So, you'll find the best Big Pine Key vacation rentals close to those warm lapping waters. Seeing its stunning submarine wildlife can be as simple as slipping on a snorkel and mask. Or you could put on some scuba gear and seek out the vividly colored riches of Big Pine's coral reefs. Kayaking is another wonderfully chilled way to explore the myriad of isles of the key back-country. Or just dangle a line from the bridge and wait for the evening's meal to snag while the sun sets across the water.

    Big Pine Key attractions both cute and fierce

    When you've had your fill of fun in the water, there's plenty on dry land to intrigue since this is one of the larger of the Florida Keys. Many with kids head to the National Key Deer Refuge, where there's a good chance of spotting the dwarf (and just heart-melting) Key deer. The Blue Hole offers a very different sort of adventure. This rare, and overlooked, freshwater lake attracts visitors from far and wide, and reportedly even alligators to its waters.

    Warm winter welcome in Big Pine Key

    This being the Florida Keys, there are only 2 temperature settings typically seen here—hot and hotter. Many choose not to stay over during the hottest summer months, when it can be humid and showery, too. In fact, you'll find most people booking their Big Pine Key vacation rentals over the winter months of December through March. Temperatures then are a comfortable 70°F, and the threat of storms quite low. Prices, however, will be high. A good compromise is late spring, when temperatures are warm, but rental rates a little cooler.

    Big Pine Key bursting with wildlife

    Some will rent a Big Pine B&B for sun, some for sea. Most for both. But this is a Key where the stunning wildlife really takes centerstage. We've already met the Key deer, with their own preserve at the National Key Deer Refuge. But there's more to Big Pine Key's wildlife riches. There are seagrass meadows and mangrove tidal creeks that shelter manta rays. And green iguanas are everywhere. The Great White Heron National Wildlife Refuge doesn't just shelter the elegant great white heron, either—the endangered hawksbill turtle breeds here, too.
