Family Fun in the Summer Sun
Will you start the day with poolside pampering or dive straight into an exciting range of onsite water sports? Choose from three swimming pools, including an adults-only relaxation pool, while the kids will love making a splash in our lagoon-style tropical pool. Find family fun on our private beach which offers action-packed adventure to help you explore the gleaming Gulf of Mexico. Choose from activities including WaveRunner tours, kayaking, paddle boarding and diving, while volleyball nets will keep everyone on their toes in the powder-soft sand. Spend an afternoon practicing your short game on our pristine putting green by Nicklaus Design, or relaxing with a little 'me time' on your beachfront balcony. Be prepared to switch off, reconnect and recharge. View our Resort Map to see how easy it is to navigate our heavenly hideaway.
Meet the Locals: Family-Friendly Activities
Aquatic birds, colorful fish, and resting iguanas are just some of the locals waiting to greet you in our ‘peace’ of paradise. Our resident resort cats can also be spotted basking in the sunshine and will become loved by the little ones. Beyond the resort are many places to get a close-up look at the wonders of wildlife. One of the many reasons why families love Tranquility Bay Resort is its nearest neighbor, the Turtle Hospital. You may even experience nature at its best with the release of a turtle that has been returned to good health. The Dolphin Research Center is another favorite among families, with opportunities to swim with these lovable marine creatures while learning about their behavior and characteristics.
Indulge in the Fresh Taste of Florida
Whether you’re craving snacks in the sunshine or tropical Keys-style cuisine, take your pick from our casual beachfront TJ’s Tiki Bar or sophisticated Butterfly Café, the #1 rated restaurant for local food in Marathon. This is the perfect spot for dinner, whether you choose to stay inside or on the covered patio area for al fresco dining. Children’s favorites are available on our special Little Caterpillars Menu, or the whole family can feast on the finest seafood fresh off the boat, served with a side of salty air and balmy breeze.
Peace, Perfect Peace
As one of the best family resorts in the Florida Keys, Tranquility Bay is home to spacious two-level Beach Houses with a choice of two or three bedrooms and complete with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a separate dining area, laundry facilities and a living room with 42-inch wall mounted plasma TV. Open the French doors, unwind together on the porch and breathe in stunning waterfront views. Traveling on a budget this summer? Families can relax in our double queen Tropical Garden Guestrooms. More intimate than our larger beach houses, these super comfortable options still offer much more space than a standard hotel room.
