Right on the oceanfront of the island's south side, Southernmost on the Beach opened in 2008 where the legendary clothing-optional Atlantic Shores Resort once stood. Things are more tame these days, with the surrounds skewing family-friendly. But the vibe keeps with Key West's good-time feel, and the property is a very popular spot for weddings (yes, you'll hear the music from your room). The 123 guest rooms are contemporary (no tropical bedspreads), with dark mahogany furniture and muted colors. Second-floor rooms, particularly the full oceanfront spaces, offer more privacy. The hotel is one of the few in Key West with true beach access: South Beach is right here, and hotel guests can make use of complimentary lounge chairs. You can also hang out on the grassy lawn, which is outfitted with Adirondack chairs and hammocks. The quieter end of Duval Street is less than a block away, and you're just a short walk from the historic Old Town highlights.—Terry Ward
