Saddlebunch Keys

The Saddlebunch Keys are a series of mangrove islands about 7 miles northeast of Key West, Florida. The keys are scattered between Lower Sugarloaf Key and Shark Key. U.S. 1 crosses some of the Saddlebunches at mile markers 11.5—15.

Just east of Big Coppitt Key and Shark Key, and west of Sugarloaf Shores, is the small community of Bay Point that has fewer than 500 residents, a county park, and two stores. The community due west of Bay Point is Bluewater key, with fewer than 100 residents, they are connected by a bike path to Big Coppitt Key which I’ve yet to take but is on my list of things to do.

Come and enjoy this beautiful portion of the Keys with its numerous mangrove islands and several bridges. You can find this exact Saddlebunch Keys sign at Mile Marker 14.3 oceanside of US-1 beside the ‘Gazebos With No View’ blogged on later. While here, check out the souvenir shop that pays homage to hurricane Wilma which blasted the Keys years ago.
