Every July you can go to the underwater festival in Florida. Nearly five hundred divers and snorkelers enjoyed music between the coral reef and fish. The annual underwater festival is held in the Looe Key Reef in the US. It is not really a concert. The musicians do not really play instruments but pretend. However there is music: it is played through an underwater speaker. A local radio station organizes it. Special speakers bring the sounds under water for four hours.
The festival is the only place on earth where divers can listen to music under water. A great thing to add to your bucket list if you ask us. The line-up? Octopus ’Garden by The Beatles, the music of the Little Mermaid and Flipper etc etc. The purpose of the festival is to protect and preserve the coral reefs in Florida, around the Key Islands.

Where to stay

If you are looking for an exceptional hotel in Florida Keys and you are not on a budget we recommend Sunset Key Cottages. The service was great beyond words. It's one of the most amazing places we have ever seen. The mini houses are very beautiful and super comfortable. The restaurant is the most sensational of Key West. On they get an average rating of 9.0 and you can book it here.
