The shifter-friendly lifestyle, southern charm and Caribbean flavor have attracted visitors from above and below the sea throughout history. Some survive the tropical climate for only a season, others of us make it our permanent home.
False Key has a lot to offer tourists from around the globe. While some visitors enjoy a quaint bed and breakfast tucked away in Old Town, others get pampered at one of the waterfront resorts or luxury hotels that dot the island.
While False Key has plenty of things to do, fishing isn't one of them. Our shallow water flats and the deep blue sea beyond our barrier coral reef form natural sanctuaries for land and marine mammals alike. Our beaches are clothing and seashell optional.
A trip to False Key would not be complete without witnessing the famous sunset. Join the locals and visitors to bid the sun farewell at Sunset Square each night. Performers, vendors and artists are on hand to complete the False Key experience.
Since its founding in 1522, False Key has become the adopted home of land and sea dwelling pirates, poets and political pundits. You'll discover why a visiting Atlantis Ambassador, relaxing in his Summer White House, once wrote: "I've a notion to move the capital to False Key and just stay."
