Enjoy beachfront adventure at Sombrero Beach

Sombrero Beach offers everything you could want from a traditional beach. Take refreshing swim in the Atlantic or sunbathe under the bright Florida sun. You can even fish off the pier and go snorkeling. If you’re feeling competitive, play a game of Volleyball on one of the beachside courts. You can get out of the sun under one of the picnic pavilions and chow down on some of the delicious local cuisine. You can even take a tour into the Atlantic or across the many bridges in the keys and spot some dolphins as they breach the surface.


Have fun in the Sombrero Beach sun

Sombrero Beach is in the Florida Keys, so expect plenty of warm weather. Bring your sunscreen because highs get around 75 degrees in the middle of winter. Highs increase even more during the summer averaging 91 degrees at most. Most rain happens around late summer to early fall, so travel in the winter if you want the most out of your trip. If you have an aversion to snow, Sombrero Beach is perfect because there’s no record of snow, frost, or freezing temperatures at all throughout its entire history. Enjoy yourself in the tropical weather all year long.

Natural features

Experience Sombrero Beach and its resident turtles

On the sandy Sombrero Beach from April to October, you’ll find Loggerhead Turtles. These adorable creatures lay their eggs on the beach during nesting season. The Marathon government protects their nests, but you can still see plenty of turtles on the beach. Don’t worry about space since the government only closes less than 10% of the beach to protect their nests. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for dolphins in the Atlantic as they frequently surface within range. If you need a break from the sand, head to one of the nearby parks to enjoy grass under your feet.
