One of the best-kept beach secrets in the Florida Keys, Sombrero Beach on Marathon Key is a cozy backyard playground for islanders.
The Keys is most acclaimed for its bars, sunsets and sea adventures, so mangrove-free Sombrero Beach is a lucky find. With its soft sand and turquoise waters, the Middle Keys gem serves locals and in-the-know visitors.
Turn off U.S. 1 toward the Atlantic Ocean side at Mile Marker 50 and wind along Sombrero Beach Road past homes on stilts and Marathon High School to find the serene, manmade retreat favored by young families, Miami women on girls-only getaways, and savvy travelers.
“Wow, what a cute beach!” said Jennifer Jones Kruse, who flew into Fort Lauderdale from Houston and drove 2½ hours with two teenagers for a stay in the heart of the Florida Keys.
“This is a nice little set-up, and it’s easy to get to.”
Jan and Annika Svensson’s two children, ages 11 and 13, ran straight into the ocean as the family from Sweden concluded a coastal road trip from New York at Sombrero Beach.
“It’s beautiful, it’s clean, it has a great view,” Annika Svensson said. “We heard only locals know about it so we had to check it out. I love seeing the sailing boats go by.”
Along with free, adjacent parking, the beach has other perks, including handicap access on a wide, flat path, a picnic pavilion, children’s playground, volleyball court, restrooms and showers. Dogs on leashes are allowed.
The sandy strip is a perfect perch for sunning, snorkeling in the gentle surf and fishing in the shallow water during the park’s hours between 7:30 a.m. and dusk.
