Move over white snow and make room for powder-soft sand with Christmas in the Florida Keys! Rather than wrapping up warm in thick winter boots, treat your toes to bare-foot walking along beautiful beaches and palm-lined paths as you celebrate the holiday season in the Florida Keys.
Marathon is transformed in to a magical winter wonderland during Christmas, with colorful displays, boat parades, illuminated tropical trees and plenty of festive cheer, all glittering against a picture of paradise. The island is a popular destination during the holidays, so book your place in paradise early to avoid missing out on a spectacular Christmas experience.
A festive feast with a tropical twist
At Tranquility Bay Resort, a Christmas buffet at our award-winning Butterfly Cafe will be the ultimate treat to give you a well-deserved break from planning, preparing and cooking a festive family feast. Capturing the flavors of the island’s tropical cuisine, team will focus their culinary talents on local ingredients and the freshest of seafood from Marathon’s surrounding waters, all served within Butterfly Café’s impressive dining room or outdoors on the restaurant’s covered patio. Full details of our Christmas buffet will be available soon.
Christmas cocktails and ocean breezes
Mulled wine may be your favorite winter warmer back home, but here in the Florida Keys you’ll need an ice-cold thirst-quencher to keep you cool. A refreshing range of frozen cocktails and fruit-filled smoothies are blended, shaken and stirred at our oceanside TJ’s Tiki Bar which also serves up a delicious selection of afternoon snacks and laid-back lunches right on the beach.
Spacious beach houses for festive family fun
At Tranquility Bay Resort, our immaculate two or three-bedroom beach houses are ideal for families and friends spending Christmas together. Stylishly designed and with the luxury of ample space, there are stunning views to soak up from your private balcony, a fully-equipped kitchen, laundry facilities and a super comfortable living room complete with a 42-inch plasma TV for essential festive film viewing. Each beach house is ideal for bringing the whole family together to unwrap gifts, play games and relax in the exclusivity of your own space.
Activities to keep all all ages entertained
It’s not often you’re greeted by endless blue skies, white sand beaches, crystal-clear waters and towering palm trees during the depths of winter. Marathon is a haven of natural beauty, adventure and fun family attractions waiting to be explored, all topped off with southern hospitality and opportunities to relax round every corner.
Just imagine waking up on Christmas Day morning to views of tropical gardens or sparkling water before taking a dip in one of our three pools, each nestled in its own garden paradise. You may be used to a particular way of spending Christmas back home, which often involves plenty of preparation and a huge clean-up after dinner. At Tranquility Bay Resort, all you’ll need to focus on is relaxation, fun and luxury in the ultimate definition of a tropical paradise.
Full details on festive events in Marathon during the holiday season will be available soon via our December events page.
