The Hammocks at Marathon is the Florida Keys at its best. The entrance road envelops you in lush tropical foliage and Caribbean music greets you at the door. The glass-enclosed lobby is impressive with its 60-foot cathedral ceilings and saltwater aquarium of a living coral reef.

With so much to do on site, you might not even want to venture out. The resort is bayside with a view you’ll never forget. Admire a menagerie of wildlife, from parrotfish, tarpon and lobster in the lagoon, to egrets, herons and pelicans among the mangroves. And don’t be surprised to see an iguana perched amid the resort’s dense vegetation. Palm trees, hammocks and tiki torches dot the landscape, while a sparkling pool and hot tub invite you to relax.

For an energetic atmosphere, turn to Barnacle Barney’s, an open-air tiki bar overlooking the on-site marina. The tiki bar offers two TVs, beer, wine, frozen drinks and a full menu, including local favorites from both land and sea. Every evening, Barnacle Barney’s hosts a “sunset celebration” punctuated by a cannon salute as the sun touches the horizon. You’ll also want to be on the lookout for our monthly pirate invasions!

Both water sports and fishing are only steps away. You can rent kayaks, boats and jet skis on site or charter a fishing boat for a thrilling day at sea.

There is no boat launch on site, however, a boat launch is available approximately ¾ mile from the resort.

Located midway along the Florida Keys, Marathon is just before the famous Seven Mile Bridge and only 50 miles north of Key West. While it has certainly grown, the pace is still relaxed and dress is always casual. Marathon is the ideal destination for snorkeling, diving and fishing. In fact, few places offer such a diversity of fish. The waters teem with cobia, sailfish, marlin, snapper, grouper, tarpon, Spanish mackerel and more. To see and do:

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving
Fishing and Sailing Charters
Sunset Cruises
Long Key State Park
Bahia Honda State Park
Sombrero Beach
Dolphin Research Center
