Sitting less than a 10-minute drive from Key West, Stock Island is a quaint spot for a local feel in the Florida Keys. Quieter than the neighboring Key West Island, you can find unique experiences with a day spent exploring this charming island!
Stock Island Adventures
Stock Island is home to the largest deep-water marina in the Florida Key’s, allowing for plenty of water activities to be enjoyed ranging from sailing charters, kayaking, and snorkeling and diving. After a dive in the crystal-clear waters, you can explore another one of Stock Island’s premiere attractions, the Key West Tropical Forest & Botanical Garden. The sub-tropical garden features 15 acres of gorgeous, tropical plants while also being a stopping point for migrating birds. You can even spot a turtle or two who call the gardens home!
Book a Tee Time at the Key West Golf Club
Golfers of all skill levels will delight at the Key West Golf Club located on Stock Island. Designed by Ree Jones, the 18-hole golf course covers 200 acres and makes use of the gorgeous tropical environment. This course is the only Caribbean golf course in the United States and will make sure that golfers have an experience they will not forget!
Grab a Bite to Eat at a Local Joint
Head to the Hogfish Bar & Grill for an open-air dining experience on Stock Island! A local favorite spot, you can order from a large menu of seafood items including crab cakes, lobster bisque, and the house specialty, the Hogfish sandwich. Another spot for local dining and relaxing is the Hurricane Hole Restaurant & Marina! Enjoy casual fare and cold drinks on the waterfront patio. Order a plate of Cajun pasta or the catch of the day while you enjoy the breeze off the water and watch the boats pass by.
For food on the go, stop by the One Love Food Truck! This unique Key West eatery offers a menu with items like hot tuna tacos, a jerk chicken sandwhich, and a Jamaican dinner plate. They also offer a soup of the day special (we recommend Sunday's recipe)! This is a can't miss lunch spot!
