No matter what your summer plans, bet there’s at least one beach involved.

If you haven’t yet picked one just yet, I have a suggestion for you. It involves a newly refurbished beachfront resort, lobster, and the immeasurable beauty of the Florida Keys. Summer is an ideal time to visit as the days are long, the sea is clear and calm, and the excitement of lobster season begins. And you can even trap your own if you’d like.

Islamorada is a collection of six islands and is known as the “Sport-Fishing Capital of the World.” It’s also a vibrant artists’ village and an impressive culinary destination in the heart of the Florida Keys. If you’re an outdoors lover, you’re in for quite a treat with all the adventures available on this stretch of South Florida paradise. These include diving, snorkeling, fishing, watersports, biking, parks, botanical gardens and even a fossil reef.

Located just off Highway 1, the relaxed beachfront resort is only a 3-minute walk from the Keys History & Discovery Center and a mile from the History of Diving Museum. Guests are still within a 54-mile drive to the fascinating Everglades National Park.

On Deck for Lobster Season

Beyond the property’s multi-phase renovation, recently debuting its reinvented guest rooms, amenities and resort programming, Islander Resort is set to officially commence Lobster Season this summer. 

What this means for Islander Resort Islamorada’s guests who visit during summer 2024 lobster season is that you can nab a great special help make your stay an amazing experience.  

Good Catch  

Guests who show their lobster license at check-in can enjoy two complimentary drinks at Tide’s Beachside Bar & Grill, one lobster collection kit and a four-pack of local beer. This offer is available through September 30 for stays between July 24-25, 2024 (the mini-season) and August 6-September 30, 2024 (the real-deal lobster season).

To help navigate the perfect lobster experience, Islander Resort offers a comprehensive online guide to help with easy access to both a Florida saltwater fishing license if you’re needing one along with a lobster permit.

Key West Lobsterfest

If you’re not into trapping your own lobsters, take a jaunt to the lively Key West Lobsterfest, a four-day celebration featuring a lobster boil, street fair, live music, and other shoreside merriment. Lobsterfest graces the Florida Keys with this lively and tasteful celebration in the summer, offering a taste of Florida’s freshest seafood, perfect for your sunny escape. This year’s 2024 festival takes place from August 8-11.
