Visiting Key West in April

April in Key West
The week after Easter in Key West is a popular time to visit the island so it can be a very busy period. From mid-April, the island slows down and couples descend to enjoy a relaxing, romantic retreat in a laid back atmosphere.
During April, families can make the most of time out from school with a Key West family Spring Break vacation. Due to our minimum guest booking age of 25, Parrot Key is not a spring break destination for college students so you can rest easy knowing there won't be a noisy party atmosphere for your family. Our resort is nestled in a tropical oasis, away from the noise of Duval Street but with easy transportation to nearby Smathers Beach thanks to our complimentary shuttle service. You can also discover exciting onsite and offsite Key West watersports activities, with "Super Discounts" for our guests - check out our specials page for Key West resort deals. Families can enjoy a splash-about in one of our four sparkling swimming pools, having fun on our sandy terraces and sprawling out on our spacious accommodations.

What to Wear in April
Our clothing style throughout the year is "Keys Casual" and most restaurants do not require a dress code. Pack your summer gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and a light shirt, but keep in mind that evenings can still be occasionally cool in April so it's always wise to bring light layers that you can add to your wardrobe when needed. April can see higher temperatures than advertised so also bring light, cool clothing. Don't forget your sunglasses, aloe or after sun cream, sun screen and a hat to protect you against UV rays. For your convenience, a Walgreens store is located adjacent to Parrot Key Resort if you need to top-up on any warm weather essentials.
