May in Key West

Make way for Mother's Day in May and pamper mom with a relaxing break at Parrot Key Resort. With Memorial Day also nestled within the month, May provides the ideal month in which to enjoy a long weekend escape to paradise. Before the island really starts to heat up for summer, you can enjoy warm, sunny days in May with a welcoming balmy breeze which makes it a perfect time of year to enjoy the tropical climate. You can also make the most of extra savings by booking your vacation early out of peak season. There are plenty of onsite and offsite Key West watersports activities to discover, alongside our Key West resort deals and "Super Discounts".

Call 855-318-2766 to speak with our onsite vacation planners today and plan an escape for Memorial Day in Key West.


Key West Weather in May

The island starts to warm up in May with an average high temperature of 85° F. At the peak of summer, the average high temperature is 89° F. Even when temperatures are high, Key West is fortunate not to have any super-highways or urban sprawl to radiate the sun's heat. Not only that, but our islands are surrounded by cooling ocean waters. By late May, the season's first thundershowers start popping up. Rarely do the storms stick around long enough to spoil an entire day.

What to Wear in May

Pack your summer gear, including flip flops, a swim suit, shorts and a light shirt, but it's always wise to bring light layers that you can add to your wardrobe when needed. If you go boating for example, bring a light jacket. May can see high temperatures so make sure to bring light, cool clothing for daytime activities. Don't forget your sunglasses, aloe, 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 forget any warm weather essentials.
