At the very bottom of the island, there’s a classic Key West landmark. The massive, brightly painted buoy that marks the Southernmost Point in the Continental United States!
From this point at the corner of South and Whitehead Streets, there are a mere 90 miles to Cuba.
The Southernmost Point buoy was erected in 1983 and although the line can be long to get a photo, it’s a landmark and must-see for any traveler to Key West.

Because there’s only one road in and out (Angela St) and it’s hidden behind the Naval Air Station Truman Annex, this gem is not as well known to the parades of tourists that visit Key West each year and only visited by people who seek it out.
You can take a self-guided tour or there’s a daily free guided tour at 11am (check this as they are currently not running tours). On the third weekend of each month, local re-enactors run historic demonstrations (check this before you go).
The beaches in Key West are a bit lackluster however the beach at Fort Zach is considered the best! The water is a clear aquamarine blue with lots of shaded area near the beach.
The bottom is quite rocky if you’re going swimming but the advantage to that is there is great snorkeling.
