August is Amazing for Florida Keys Vacations

August offers amazing options for things to do in Marathon, Florida making it the perfect time for family-friendly Florida Keys vacations or a romantic summer retreat! Families love our tropical swimming pools, friendly staff, and spacious accommodations. Our spacious two and three-bedroom Florida Keys beach houses provide an excellent option for families or friends traveling together while couples appreciate a romantic retreat in our intimate Tropical Garden Guestrooms. Families tend to visit the first half of the month, while couples and seniors descend on the island during the second half of August, when the island calms down after summer holidays.

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.
