Enjoy a Tropical Escape at Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys

There are lots of different and amazing ways to experience the Florida Keys, but one of our favorite ways is on the small and secluded island of Duck Key with a stay at Hawks Cay Resort. It’s a fun place to be for aquatic adventures, coastal living, and amazing food. Couples come here for romantic getaways, and families plan resort vacations here too.
