Duck Key comprises of five islands: Yacht Club Island, Harbour Island, Center Island, Indies Island and Plantation Island – joined together by a series of white venetian-style bridges. Little white bridges and only one road that connects the island to US Highway 1. Duck Key is all about seclusion and tranquillity.
Each of the islands are surrounded by a canal which means literally half the properties or lots offer front dockage or open water views. A kind of Florida Key Venice if you like. And like the more famous Italian canal based city, one of the main focuses in living in Duck Key Florida is a laidback way of life.
All over the Florida Keys, residents enjoy the outside life, and really thrive when it comes to water based activities. Diving, snorkelling and fishing are on many people’s lists of things to do as soon as they can get away from the office.
At Duck Key it’s even easier, due to the water frontages of the homes, you can basically jump out of your PJ’s and dive out your front door into the water!
