What to Include in Your Key West Shot List

Some of the best pictures to include in your Key West scrapbook are the candid moments you capture with friends or family. However, there are some landmarks and sights everyone visiting this Florida island should try to photograph.

  • One of the most iconic Key West landmarks is the Southernmost Point Buoy, located at the end of Whitehead Street. Before heading over, check the webcam stream to see how crowded it is.
  • For panoramic views of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean, climb to the top of Key West Lighthouse. You can also purchase tickets for the Sunset Experience, which showcases the island in a new light.
  • Get to Mallory Square’s nightly Sunset Celebration early to snag a front-row spot to the sun sinking into the horizon. While here, you can also experiment with portrait photography by taking photos of the street performers here.
  • There are several things to take pictures of in Bahama Village. Capture the colorful conch cottages, Bahama Village Market sign, and merchants at their booths that line the streets of this unique neighborhood.
  • If you’re able to do underwater photos, head out on a snorkel tour with Fury Water Adventures to Eastern Dry Rocks. Capture the colorful aquatic world of coral and marine life.
