If you’re coming to Key West for Spring Break, chances are you’re looking for a 24/7 party. And you’ve come to the right place! There’s a reason our island has become such a hot spot for college Spring Break over the past couple of years. We’ve got what you’re looking for! 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 four spots you absolutely must hit up to get your party on by day.
1. 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.
2. Smathers Beach: 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.
3. Dantes: 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!
4. The Galleon: 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.
