Let's Talk about Key Colony Beach.
Key Colony Beach was founded in early 1950s by a developer named Phil Sadowski, and was incorporated in 1957. It is located on 286 acres of land, and includes approximately 1,368 housing units, 118 undeveloped lots, and 11 lots in the process of development. Our small city boasts of having three beautiful parks, including Sunset Park which gives all visitors and residents access to beautiful keys sunsets, the ocean and Sunday Concerts; also recreation areas for adults and children, and a municipal golf course. The number of resident there fluctuates greatly.
There are 822 permanent residents who enjoy the beautiful year-round climate; in mid-winter, however, the population peaks at 3,600, and averages around 2,500 most of the year. The current make-up consists of duplex homes, then condominiums, single-family homes, motel rooms, and time-share units. It also has 15 commercial establishments. aches anywhere, both part of the City of Marathon's Parks and Recreation Department, and both absolutely free to enter! Sombrero Beach is the City's jewel and showplace. Located at the end of Sombrero Beach Boulevard (the traffic light at Mile Marker 50 near Kmart and Publix), the park had suffered years of neglect. After the City incorporated in 2000, Marathon's first City Council held workshops and redeveloped the beach, adding new pavilions, restrooms, and environmental features, plus making the entire park handicapped-accessible. There is a kid's playground, a volleyball court, wheelchair-friendly walkways, and plenty of pavilions for your picnic or cookouts. Tall coconut palms sway in the tropical breezes, and Sombrero Beach is continually rated as one of the best beaches in South Florida. Sombrer Beach is also the host of Marathon's July 4th Celebration, an all-day event that culminates in the Keys' best fireworks display. Coco Plum Beach, located on Coco Plum Drive off of Mile Marker 54, is an undeveloped natural beach. After Marathon incorporated, the City cleaned up years of accumulated debris and garbage and returned the beach to its natural state. Quiet and peaceful are two words that people use frequently to describe the natural beauty of Coco Plum Beach. The park includes a natural wetlands area for preservation and is very popular with locals and visitors who want some quiet island downtime. There are restrooms and a covered thatch-roof tiki pavilion on site, plus lots of natural wooded area bordering the tropical sea. Both beach parks are dog-friendly, there is no admission charge to either beach, and the hours are from 7:00 a.m. until dusk. Both Sombrero Beach and Coco Plum Beach are turtle nesting beaches, and from April through October it is not unusual to have Loggerhead Turtles (primarily) coming on to the beach at night to lay their eggs. During this period, the City will not have tables or benches on the beach so as to not interfere with turtle nesting activities. The City is responsible for surveying the beaches during turtle nesting season, so if you see a nest that has been staked off, please do not disturb it. The City of Marathon is proud of its beaches and encourages both locals and visitors to enjoy the best of the island life on our beautiful tropical shores.
