Purple Isle in the Florida Keys
Some will say that you have never seen the color purple until you’ve experience a sunset in Islamorada, leaving little room to wonder why the Spanish explorers named these sacred islands “Islamorada,” meaning “purple island.” Islamorada is located just 90 miles south of Miami, but this tropical paradise can make anyone feel worlds away. Primarily comprised of five islands boasting swaying palms, exotic plants, and unmistakably turquoise waters, this extraordinary destination has been providing refuge to elite travelers for decades. Surrounded by four bodies of water, the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, Gulfstream, and Florida Bay, this fishing mecca easily upholds its title as the “Sportfishing Capital of the World.” From deep sea trolling to fly fishing amongst the mangroves, Islamorada is every fisherman’s dream. Whatever your passion, whatever the reason, visitors to Islamorada leave with lifelong memories and a particular tie to the Keys’ way of life.
