With non-stop flights from Knoxville to South Florida, it’s also an easy getaway. Just book a flight, rental car and head down the Overseas Highway to Ernest Hemingway’s paradise.
The Overseas Highway, US Hwy 1 in Florida, is one of America’s most scenic roads. Traveling through the Keys is a breathtaking trip. At approximately mile marker 61 between Conch and Grassy Keys on the island of Duck Key sits a landmark of the Florida Keys, Hawks Cay Resort. You will find clear turquoise water, endless sunshine, great fishing and abundant relaxation. Recently, the landmark oceanside resort reopened after completing a $50 million dollar renovation post Hurricane Irma.
Hawks Cay Resort, recipient of the prestigious AAA Four Diamond Award and a member of the Preferred Hotel Group Lifestyle Collection, is a 60-acre, tropical destination boasting 177 guest rooms and 250 two- and three-bedroom villas, a full-service marina, six restaurants, saltwater lagoon, five swimming pools, kid and teen clubs and spa.
It is also the only resort in the mainland United States offering free viewing of trained dolphins. Guests have the unique opportunity to encounter and interact with bottlenose dolphins in this marine mammal’s natural environment.
Located in the premier fishing destination of the Middle Florida Keys, The Hawks Cay Marina is home to the most knowledgeable and friendly fishing captains and guides with a complete fleet of both inshore and offshore charter boats.
Hawks Cay Resort is a tropical destination, easily accessible by car, boat or plane yet feels worlds away from everyday life. Alongside the aquamarine water of the Atlantic Ocean, guests of all ages will find fun and relaxation at its best.
