Marathon, Florida

"The Heart of the Florida Keys"

Marathon Properties for Sale

 

This quaint tropical city of Marathon is conveniently situated in the middle of the Keys island chain. Located mainly on Vaca Key, Fat Deer, and Grassy Key, Marathon is a 10- mile-long family-oriented island community rooted in a heritage of fishing, and reflects the old-Keys lifestyle that residents, snowbirds and visitors enjoy so much. It is maintaining this simple, seafaring tradition that has made Marathon so special.

Marathon Airport accommodates general and commercial aviation, to easily reach what locals call "The heart of the Keys".

Marathon has activities for everyone that include fishing, boating, diving, and snorkeling. Marathon is home to beautiful Sombrero Beach, the Dolphin Research Center, Crane Hammock, and the Turtle Hospital.

Sombrero Reef, a federally protected section of the United States' only living coral barrier reef, lies just a few miles offshore of the coast line of Marathon. Beyond it are the deep blue waters of the Florida Straits, with world class wreck diving on artificial reefs.
