Here’s the Florida Key’s LARGEST Reef Light… OK, onshore replica 🙂 standing over 20 feet tall. The reef light is this city’s most recognizable symbol used all over town. A smaller version of the reef light can be found as you enter and exit the city limits of Marathon while driving on Hwy. US-1.
This proud A-frame reef light stands guard as the centerpiece of Marathon’s Community Park entrance. Many call reef lights ‘Ocean-bound lighthouses’ since they are indeed offshore to protect boats from running aground on reefs where they get their names. Though not lit, this is impossible to miss during the day.
You can find this awesome city symbol standing tall at Mile Marker 49.1 oceanside in front of the park on US-1.
