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.

— When I plan a trip, I no longer waste time visiting multiple websites in search of the best accommodations. Now, I just go to AllTheRooms and immediately find everything from luxury villas to pet-friendly rentals! All in one place
— As a mom of 5 kids who enjoy traveling, I love AllTheRooms! It is quick and easy to find the best deal on lodging that fits our family, in the area we'd like. AllTheRooms really does save you time, money, and hassle.
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
