Key West, Florida’s southernmost point, is an island more known for its coral reefs and diving opportunities than its beaches. Closer to Cuba than to Miami, distance-wise, it was referred to as Cayo Hueso in Spanish, and changed hands several times between colonial powers before it became part of the US. Take advantage of the plethora of water sports on offer, as well as the active nightlife, before relaxing in one of the best spa hotels in Key West, bookable with Culture Trip.
