Layton is the main city located on the island of Long Key. It is a small community even for the Florida Keys. Layton is located just a few miles north of Marathon along the Overseas Highway at mile marker 68.5. While communities like Marathon will give you the island experience Layton and Long Key take it to the next level. It is perfect for people who love nature and offers Long Key State Park as a way to enjoy it’s beauty.
The proximity to the water is one of the biggest draws of the Florida Keys, and Layton is no different. There are many coral reefs that are not only fantastic for fishing but great for diving and offer views and the ability to catch fish that are unparallelled. Because of the size of Layton, nearly every home is a water front property.
People who are looking for a second home where they can really escape the trappings of the real world will love Layton. It is a great place to vacation and retire where you can enjoy the peace and quiet on a perfect island without being too far from all the amenities that you need which can be found on Marathon.
Just south of Layton is the Outdoor Resorts at Long Key, this can be a great investment property opportunity. Like Layton, it is a smaller community and the properties are smaller when compared other resort properties on other Keys in Outdoor Resorts at Long Key which will appeal to a clientele not represented by the other resorts.
