Easter Vacation In Our Aquavillas
Easter break might bring visions of new outfits and bright baskets filled with pastel treats, but this year, it could be so much more. This year, you could be spending your Easter vacation in the Florida Keys where you could hunt for eggs among palm fronds on white sandy beaches as the waves gently lap against the shores. The friendly relaxed vibe and warm, sunny weather of the Keys make them perfect for Easter festivities whether you’re visiting on your own or with your family and friends.
From March through April, Easter revelers descend upon the Florida Keys in search of sunny, seasonal festivities. The weather and the fun start heating up in mid-March when bright skies and low humidity pair to create the perfect climate for outdoor fun.
Islamorada has a worldwide reputation for its sports fishing, and you can charter an angling adventure in the flats, on the reefs, or out in the open water in search of lemon sharks, blacktip sharks, tarpon, permit, Mahi Mahi, blackfin tuna, bonito, kingfish, sailfish, and wahoo. If you’re not much of an angler, there are plenty of other water activities from which to choose, including paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, snorkeling, and scuba diving. Of course, you can also simply relax on Anne’s Beach or Islamorada Beach and soak up the lovely Florida sun.
There is plenty of sightseeing to do, too, on both land and sea. You can start with a simple glass-bottomed boat tour or go snorkeling at John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park. You can also take a cruise worthy of a silver-screen star via the African Queen, the same ship that once held Katherine Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart for their movie of the same name. You could also visit the animals at the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary or the Wild Bird Rehabilitation Center, where you can stroll along a beachy boardwalk and feed the pelicans.
Explore more hands-on activities at Theater of the Sea, where you can visit tropical gardens and get up close and personal with stingrays and sea turtles, or check out the Keys History and Discovery Center, which features an extensive collection of artifacts and memorabilia tracing the history of this lively little spot. When you need a quieter afternoon, check out the Rain Barrel Artisans’ Village and explore the handmade arts and crafts, artisanal products, and one-of-a-kind souvenirs on display in the huge open-air market.
