After dropping their bags in the RentTheKeys rooms of their choice, the first adventure on the Keys usually involves the white sand beaches for which we are famous, and once you see them for the first time, you will understand why! The science of how white and soft our sands is as magical as their beauty, involving pure quartz that made its way from the Appalachian Mountains over 20,000 years ago, but you won’t care why it is white when your toes are buried in their crystalline softness. This guide to the Florida Keys beaches, their differences, and all the things that make them the same, will give you the opportunity to find your favorite before you walk out the door of your vacation sanctuary! Of course, we still think you should visit as many as you can, not just read about them, just to make sure you don’t accidentally miss the best one for you!
