The laid-back atmosphere of this tropical island is reflected in the small motels, bed and breakfasts, fishing lodges and cottages; there are no major hotels/resorts on the island.

Camping is available at nearby Bahia Honda State Park—both tent and RV camping—and there are other RV campgrounds on the small keys surrounding Big Pine. A large RV campground is located on Cudjoe Key, about ten miles southwest of Big Pine Key. Another is on Sugarloaf Key, five miles farther west. Sugarloaf also has several small cottages and a KOA campground. Shopping here is limited.
Looe Key, home to the underwater music festival is the real deal and is a favorite diving location a few miles from Big Pine on Ramrod Key, and there is a resort on that island where many divers choose to stay and a boat that will transport you to the site. Perfect for snorkeling and scuba.
Offshore on the Atlantic side of U.S. 1 at Little Torch Key is a large high-end luxury resort on a private island only accessible by boat; the resort ferry will take you there from their dock on Little Torch.
