Just where the Keys begin to arch toward blazing sunsets, and the din of busier islands fades to nothing, stands the tropical paradise called Lower Matecumbe and the Coral Bay Resort.
Unspoiled and unhurried, the Coral Bay Resort preserves an informality and grace that other Keys can only distantly recall. Each of our distinctive cottages is styled after an historic Keys home and each is tropically appointed with central heat and air-conditioning.
Whether you want to fish, dive, snorkel, rent a power or sail boat, or just lie around our heated pool, our managers will help you accomplish it. Each is committed to our concept of maintaining “The Keys the way they used to be”.
The grounds at the Coral Bay Resort are lined with hibiscus and bougainvillea and our brilliant sandy beach slopes gently into the liquid crystal hues of the Gulf of Mexico. The sunsets are always spectacular and at night we illuminate the waters beyond our dock so that our guests can continue to enjoy the play along the ocean floor.
The waters surrounding the Coral Bay Resort provide some of the very best fishing in all the world. Close to shore lie excellent bonefishing flats and tarpon haunts. Further offshore lie marlin, sailfish, and dolphin. You can fish for snapper and grouper right from our dock or be picked up there by experienced local guides for deep sea adventure. Our staff can make all these arrangements for you.
If you are bringing your own boat, remember that our protected harbor, marina and boat ramp are offered free to guests along with the use of our fishing and swimming pier.
The Coral Bay Resort, with so much to do and so little pressure to do anything, is as perfect for families as it is for couples. We invite you to join us and our many other long-time guests this year for a wonderful holiday and a step back into a simpler, more relaxed time.
