Cudjoe Key

Relaxing Island Adventures.

The island of Cudjoe Key lies between Sugarloaf Key and Big Pine Key, along US Highway 1; one-hundred, eleven miles southwest of Miami and nineteen miles north of Key West. Cudjoe Key is part of the islands in southwestern Florida known as the Lower Islands of the Florida Keys. The 2000 census shows that the population of Cudjoe Key barely tops 1,700 full time residents. The island is famous for the relaxing vacation rental properties that line the beautiful stretches of beach along the island.

Activities and attractions on Cudjoe Key center around the many water sports and boating opportunities. Rent a boat and glide through the waters off the coast or take advantage of the many charter fishing services located throughout the area. Snorkeling and diving trips are also extremely popular activities among tourists and locals alike. For those who want a taste of adventure, you can rent a kayak or canoe and paddle through the water channels winding through several outlying island areas.

Away from the hustle and bustle of the larger cities scattered throughout the Florida Keys, Cudjoe Key is one of the best places to find a quiet spot to commune with nature, observe wildlife or settle back and enjoy a tropical sunset or dip in the ocean.

You can also catch a glimpse of Fat Albert on Cudjoe Key; the long white blimp used by the US Federal government to patrol boat traffic and aircraft using radar devices. Surprisingly, Fat Albert is also used for the purpose of broadcasting a US television program to viewers in Cuba, only about 90 miles away.

Cudjoe Key is conveniently located to many other cities and locations throughout the Keys. Seventy-three miles to the north lies Key Largo and Miami is only about a two hour drive to the north. Traveling up the keys and to the northwest, visitors will find the Naples area, 250 miles away.
