Pet Friendly Marathon Florida

Pet Friendly Vacations: Marathon Florida

We love taking our dogs Cosmo and Maui on adventures around town! Here are Cosmo and Maui’s “Pet Friendly Favorites” in Marathon Florida!



Pet Friendly Activities-

Crane Point Museum and Nature Center

Crane Point is one of our favorite Pet Friendly Activities in Marathon Florida! Hike trails through the Tropical Hardwood Hammock Forest and mangrove jungle. Walk through the open air facilities of The Marathon Wild Bird Rescue Center to get an up close look of all the wild birds that are being rehabilitated there. Make sure you hike all the way out to the point where there is a awesome foot bridge with great views of the gulf and the underwater environment below. Save the indoor (air-conditioned) museum for last, especially on those hot summer days! Bring a camera and be prepared to learn a lot! 


Coco Plum Beach

One of very few natural Beaches in the FL Keys, Coco Plum Beach is a little off the beaten path but definitely worth a visit! The beach is never overcrowded with visitors, its not uncommon to feel as if you have the beach to yourself! Cosmo and Maui love swimming in the shallow waters but beware of urchins and other critters. Be sure to visit at low tide if you want beach access. If the beach is covered by the tide, Coco Plum also has an awesome back beach trail that runs between the beach and a lagoon area.

Pet Friendly Dining

Keys Fisheries

Keys Fisheries is an awesome place to grab some amazingly fresh seafood in a uniquely “Keysey” environment. They got a 5 bone rating on! Get some fresh stone crabs or stuffed hogfish! Great food, Great vibes and happy dogs! Don’t forget to look out for giant tarpon and lobster in the surrounding waters!

The Stuffed Pig

The Stuffed Pig is my ultimate favorite breakfast spot in Marathon! I swear by the crab cake Benedict! This place is super pet friendly and also got 5 bones on! They have the best breakfast seafood menu around! Don’t forget to bring CASH!! They are old school and do not accept credit card payments!

Pet Friendly Lodgings

Coconut Cay

I have made many great family vacation memories at  Coconut Cay before moving to the Keys! Very “Keysey” accommodations complete with canal front rooms! Pets welcome!

We hope you and your dog’s enjoy Marathon’s top pet friendly places as much as Maui and Cosmo do!
