During spring break, Key West is packed to the gills with babes in bikinis and boys in board shorts. The island is home to tropical breezes, balmy beaches and the infamous Duval Street, a mile-long stretch of bars, boutiques and more bars.
Soak Up the Sun at Smathers Beach
The party goes from dawn ‘til dusk at Smathers Beach, an almost mile-long stretch of powdery white sand on the south side of the island. Stock your cooler, pack a towel and don’t forget the sunscreen because you’re going to want to stay here the entire day. Sunbathe, dance in the sand, join a game of volleyball or just admire the scenery – and we’re not talking about palm trees.
Take a Dip at Dante’s Pool Bar
Take a break from the beach at the biggest and best pool bar on the island – Dante’s. DJs spin house and hip-hop all day long, while skilled bartenders sling strong cocktails. The waist-deep water of this massive pool is the perfect place to kick back with a drink and mingle with new friends. Hungry? They’ve got you covered with a delicious menu to make sure your party is a marathon and not a sprint.
Embark on the Ultimate Adventure
The only thing better than partying on land in Key West is partying on the water! For the ultimate spring break experience, book a trip with Fury’s Ultimate Adventure where you’ll get breakfast, lunch and a full day of snorkeling, parasailing, kayaking and jet skiing, plus all you can drink.
Join the Party at Rick’s Bar
When the sun sets, head to the hottest spring breaker nightlife destination – Rick’s. Don’t let the name fool you; it’s not one, but eight bars that comprise the largest party complex on the island. Get your groove on at the upstairs dance club, where drink deals, contests and parties are designed with breakers in mind. If you like your music loud and live, head to Durty Harry’s where musicians perform nightly.
Rum, Reggae and Snorkel
Fury’s Rum and Reggae combination snorkel and sunset trip is ideal for spring breakers! Cap off the afternoon snorkeling the coral reef and then groove to reggae music while watching the breathtaking sunset on your sail back to Key West. This excursion includes all-you-can-drink beer, wine and – you guessed it – rum punch!
Lounge at the Lazy Gecko
Most nights out on Duval Street include a stop at the Lazy Gecko, a bar with a cozy dance floor and a big reputation. Things have a tendency to get a little wild here, so if you’ve ever wanted to dance on a bar, now’s your chance. New York Yankees fans be warned – this is the southernmost Red Sox bar in the country!
Slurp a Fat Tuesday Daiquiri
It’s not spring break in our tropical paradise until you’ve had a frozen daiquiri from Fat Tuesday. With dozens of swirling frozen drink machines, the toughest part is choosing which fabulous flavor you want. Don’t rush the goodness or you’ll get a brain freeze! Pro tip: grab one of their trademark mugs to go, and keep your drinks cold all week long!
