One of the most beautiful reefs in the Florida Keys, Looe Key Reef has large fingers of living coral extending out to sea. The reef has many large overhangs as well as several shallow sandy flats where shelling can be done. This is a great area for photography. Depths from 5 to 70 feet.
Picnic island -is a hot spot on weekends because of the long sand bar coming off the South side. People bring lawn chairs and cooler and spend the entire day there and on the island. It's a good place for kids and dogs. A pontoon boat may show up to sell soft soft drinks, hot dogs and hamburgers right off the boat! Dogs are welcome to run free here, as long as they're friendly.
Best Sandbar in the Keys. Popular day anchorage. Once you get there and walk around, you couldn't tell you weren't somewhere out in the Bahamas Out Islands. The large flats/shoal to gulfside is very shallow (less than ankle deep). Lots of live rock. Small pockets of water in the sand around the Island are at Spa-like temperatures in the tropical sun. Can lie down in the Sand and have a therapeutic Spa treatment. Main Sandbar where you beach the small boat has steep sides so you can bow in your boat to the beach while the stern is floating. HOWEVER - at high tide the sand beach is almost entirely submerged. The tides are not high, but if you beach your boat at high tide it'll be stranded when the tide goes out - just keep an eye on the tide level while you're there. Locals keep this area very clean - no broken bottles or trash around (please keep it this way) - so you can take off your water shoes and walk around in the deep sand. This is one of the very few places you can do this in the Keys without sharp or crunchy corals, rocks or sea plants cutting your feet. (ALSO - Snipe point is just to the West of Marvin Keys. It also has a very nice beach but you can get there directly from offshore to anchor your boat in the sandbar - unlike the better Marvin Keys)
