The Beach at The Moorings in Islamorada, FL

the beach at the Moorings in Islamorada, Florida Keys

Visitors don’t (or shouldn’t) come to the Keys for solely a beach holiday. That said, they are a few gems. One of those is the beach at the Moorings in Islamorada.

The Moorings, or Moorings Village and Spa is a high end luxury property.  Visitors essentially stay in beach front houses not hotel rooms. And I certainly plan to stay over at some point as it will make a great story for my Stay Luxurious site (slated to be released in 2013), but until then I just usually spend an hour on the beach waiting for a massage. Yes, the spa open to the public and it offers massages on the beach. It’s a great way to treat yourself on a visit to the upper Florida Keys.

Travel Tip: Book back to back massages with a friend, family member or your significant other. Then during your “wait” time walk along the beach and even spend a few minutes in a hammock. That’s what I do.

    Hi Craig, This looks like a wonderful way to spend a day in the Keys. Do they have a restaurant there or can you recommend one in the area? Terri

    • craig zabransky

      Terri, they don’t. But there are many in Islamorada. And a few of my favorites are directly across US1 (Overseas Highway). For classy, try Pierre’s one of my favorites or a little more casual is next door at Morada Bay. And yes, both have amazing sunsets.

      It’s all at mm80-mm81; stay adventurous, Craig

    Great looking beach. I’ve popped into the Holiday Isle resort a couple times, but never to hang out and experience the island. Sounds like I need to add this to the list…

      There is so much to see and do in the Upper Florida Keys… so much. Add this one to the list, especially if you look to stay luxurious, Craig
