Best Time for Honeymoon in Key West

The best time to book a Key West all-inclusive honeymoon varies depending on the experiences you and your new spouse would like to have. For an intimate and romantic holiday, the best time to visit Key West is March to May. During this time, the region’s winter crowds have begun to clear out, and the island sees a lull in their monthly tourism. Holidaymakers travelling in these shoulder months will experience clear blue skies and comfortable temperatures that begin to climb to the mid-80s throughout the season. Overall, the island’s spring months offer the optimal weather conditions free from the heavy crowding of peak season, perfect for spending romantic time with your paramour.

Of course, there are some advantages to booking Key West honeymoon hotels at other times throughout the year. For example, the island’s wet season runs from June to November. Visitors willing to venture into this rainy season will be rewarded with reduced pricing and even less crowding than in the spring. Similarly, visitors that would like a more social honeymoon and a more vibrant party scene should plan their trip to coincide with the region’s peak tourist season. Couples seeking these experiences should book their holiday between December and January.
