The name Islamorada (Original meaning: “Island Home”), newly nicknamed, “The Purple Isle,” came from early Spanish explorers in the area. It is pronunced “Is-La-Moh-Ra-Da.” Islamorada is known as the “Sportfishing Capital of the World” and rumor has it that we also host a larger fishing fleet per square mile than anywhere else in the world. This perfect family vacation destination offers something to do in, under, above or near the water 24 hours a day. The aqua blue waters surrounding our village of islands provide fantastic views from every bridge and waterfront resort, restaurant and home.
