Raise your hand if you have suffered from FOMO from all the amazing vacation pictures your friends post on social media. We’re not judging; instead, we’re here to help turn the tables. It’s your turn! If you are looking for a great vacation destination for the most Insta-worthy, make-my-friends-jealous, beautiful places to photograph, then look no further than the Florida Keys.
Here is a list of our 11 favorite selfie spots:
1. Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary
Grab your GoPro and dive in! You may even be photobombed by a colorful fish or dolphin!
2. Old Seven Mile Bridge
The contrast of the old, rusty bridge against the bright aqua waters makes for gorgeous shots, especially at sunset! Try renting jet-skis and troll about to get the best shots.
3. Alligator Reef
No worries, there aren’t real alligators all the way out here. The water is so clear and so blue, you may be so mesmerized you forget to take pictures!
4. Bahia Honda State Park
Voted the best beach in The Keys, and one of the top beaches in the US, a visit to Bahia Honda should be on everyone’s list! Beauty abounds both on land and sea.
5. Boca Chica Sandbar
Posting selfies of you and your crew standing in waist-deep 80+ degree water while your friends and family deal with another snowstorm? Priceless.
6. Smather’s Beach
So many photo ops can be found here - located along the eastern end of Key West Island, this stretch of sand is lined with tall palms and flowing grasses. For the best light, check it out at sunrise!
7. Southernmost Point Buoy
Obligatory selfie alert! This is a must-do in Key West. For best viewing, try going first thing in the morning, while the rest of the island is still asleep.
8. Fort Zachary Taylor
Fort Zachary Taylor, or “Fort Zach” as the locals call it, is a cool historical site that also has the prettiest beach in Key West. Bonus points if you can find the signpost on the beach!
9. Sunset Pier
Also known for the “Selfiemost Point,” this place is both hard to find and hard to leave. Arguably the best views in all The Keys, after you grab a few selfies, sit back, relax, and enjoy!
10. Dry Tortugas National Park
This place should be on everyone’s bucket list. Taking pictures of the striking contrast of the old brick fortress against the vastness of the shallow sea is breathtaking. These will probably be some of the most cherished images you’ll ever take!
11. Cuban Coffee Queen
When visiting Key West, a stop at Cuban Coffee Queen is an absolute must! There is a fun Key West postcard mural painted on the side of the building. This mural makes the perfect backdrop for a selfie. While you are there, make sure you grab a cuban coffee as well as some of the other delicious items on their menu!
