August is Amazing for Florida Keys Vacations

Travel Tips, Weather, Events and Deals

Make our home your summer escape for the whole family with a Florida Keys vacation in August. With fun-filled activities to keep all ages entertained, this is an exciting month to visit our island paradise. Families love our tropical swimming pools, including the palm-lined large lagoon-style pool, and our friendly staff will help you plan a range of local family-friendly places to visit. Our spacious two and three-bedroom Florida Keys beach houses are the ideal home-away-from-home option for families or friends traveling together, and our swimming beach provides the perfect playground for adventure-seekers. Families tend to visit during the first half of August, while couples escaping the crowds can relax on a romantic retreat during the second half of the month, when our more intimate Tropical Garden Guestrooms are a popular choice.

Marathon Weather in August

In August, the average high temperature is 89° F (32° C). Fortunately, our islands are surrounded by ocean waters allowing a balmy breeze to cool the resort. The water temperature may be in the mid-80s (30° C), but swimming, snorkeling or diving still provides lasting refreshment from the summer sun. The summer often brings afternoon thunderstorms, but the rain often passes quickly.

You may be considering the Atlantic hurricane season as you plan your trip. The official hurricane season begins June 1st and ends on November 30th. It can affect the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the United States as well as the Caribbean and the Bahamas. Traditionally, the highest potential for storms occurs between August 15th and October 15th. To protect our guests, Tranquility Bay Resort offers a hurricane clause for your Marathon, Florida vacation during this period so please inquire within our call center.
