This remote island in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico is somewhat of an enigma and well kept secret in South Florida. Locals get around on foot or on golf carts, there are 4-miles of beaches, and plenty of wildlife as most of the land is protected state preservation.
With virtually no crowds and barely any tourists, visitors are free to explore this virtual island paradise with over 20-miles of trails and nature trails on foot or by bike. Remember to look out for the endangered wildlife such as manatees, gopher tortoises, dolphins, otters and bird species that shelter here in what is essentially an eco park.

— My favorite thing about AllTheRooms is that it combines both rentals and hotels available so you can see an entire view of what is available in a certain area. I was able to see listings on AllTheRooms that I never even saw on other travel sites!
— I love AllTheRooms because it enables me to compare a range of providers in just one search. I'd normally spend time checking prices across a range of platforms by visiting different websites one-by-one, so this helps me to save time on my accommodation searches while planning my upcoming trips
— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
