If you’re coming to Key West for Spring Break, chances are you’re looking for a great party. And you’ve come to the right place! Hot, sunny weather, beaches, boats, bars, boys in board shorts and babes in bikinis. Right? If this is your first Key West Spring Break, here are some great ideas for planning your trip and the spots you absolutely must hit up to get your party on.
Evening temps are cooler, and island breezes keep the Keys comfortable 24 hours a day. Daytime air and water temperatures hover around 80 degrees.
Essential Items To Pack
Key West is a funky, charming place, so stay away from anything too formal. Flip-flops, sneakers, shorts, tank-tops, hats of all sorts, suntan lotion, towels, toiletries, bathing suits and maybe a pair or two of jeans if you’re really feeling fancy.
Where To Stay
Best Western Key Ambassador Resort: While slightly outside the more populated areas of the island, the bang for your buck here is right on the money. The beach directly adjacent to the hotel is one of the best with powdery white sands and great vibes.
Where To Eat
Fisherman’s Cafe: For an average of between $10-$15, you can munch away at one of the favorite casual spots on the island. Choices range from the freshest lobster tacos to succulent burgers and hearty breakfasts.
Charlie Mac’s: This Zagat rated restaurant serves up the best Q in Key West. They dish out award-winning, competition-worthy BBQ like brisket, chicken, pork ribs and pulled pork that pairs nicely with their excellent selection of micro-brewed beers.
Where To Play
Ultimate Adventure or Snorkel Trip
The first thing on my list will be to get on a boat. Fury’s Reef & Ritas and Rum & Reggae snorkel trips are both great ways to see North America’s only living coral reef! Our all day adventure, The Ultimate Adventure, is great for everyone! If it’s a full day on the water that you’re craving with breakfast and lunch included, snorkeling, parasailing and jet skiing, then this is a no brainer. And, of course, we’re serving up all you can drink on all of these trips.
Fly high above the sparkling waters of Key West while enjoying breathtaking, 360 panoramic views of this island paradise.
Fury’s Jet Ski tour around the island is a must-do for the high energy thrill-seekers in your group. Feel the wind in your hair as you circle the island on a top-of-the-line Sea Doo personal watercraft.
This is the classic spot for a day party during Key West Spring Break. Pack your cooler, slather on the sunscreen and bring your beach blanket for a day in the sand with the rest of the college coeds. The scene gets rowdy with music blaring and plenty of mixing and mingling, so if it’s relaxation you’re looking for, you’d be better off at Fort Zach. This is also one of the free things to do in Key West on Spring Break, so for the college students partying on a budget, this is a great spot.
This is Key West’s hot spot for a pool party. With a DJ spinning house and hip hop, the mood is high energy all day long. The pool is massive with a waterfall and marlin sculpture spraying water that overlooks the harbor. The bartenders and waitresses are on top of it with great service and strong, tasty drinks. And if you get hungry, they’ve got a delicious menu of tasty bar food with an upscale twist. You’re going to need some fuel to keep the party going!
If you’re looking to drink and chillax like a local (aka the Fury Boys and Girls on their day off or after work), then swing by the Galleon. They’ve got a great Tiki Bar set up with lounge chairs overlooking the harbor, a small beach and a pool. The vibe is more chill than party, but you never know when a rowdy patron will kick it up a notch. They’ve got a great happy hour for that transition from day to night, and sometimes live music by our very own Mike D.
