500 Ocean offers everything your family needs for a leisurely holiday. As the southernmost part of the United States, the Keys are dedicated to preserving their laid-back nature. Leave your neckties and high heels at home. Not much attention is paid to clocks as residents operate on variable "island time".As it has for centuries, life focuses here on the water. To the south lies the nearby Atlantic Ocean where the deep-sea angler can battle sailfish, dolphin, marlin and wahoo, or simply relax and enjoy the secluded tropical charm of the island. 500 Ocean is just minutes away from the best fishing, boating, windsurfing, sailing, diving and restaurants in the sport fishing capital of the world: Marathon, Florida Keys. The Atlantic beaches of Marathon are among the few in the Florida Keys. Nearby are also such attractions as North America's only living coral reef, golf courses, Looe Key Marine Sanctuary, Dolphin Research Center (swim with dolphins), Museum of Natural History, and Sombrero Beach? A modern airport, its own hospital, several large supermarkets and major pharmacies service Marathon with many excellent restaurants in the area.
