Village of Islamorada

Reopening at 50% capacity:

Islamorada parks, beaches and boat ramps will reopen at normal operating hours on Tuesday, July 7. Upon reopening, all facilities in the Village will be limited to 50% capacity through the Labor Day weekend holiday. Limiting the capacity at parks and beaches for the remainder of the summer is an additional measure to reduce the community spread of COVID-19.

In the area known as the Fills from MM 77.5 to 79.8 and the Indian Key Boat Ramp area, approximately half of the parking spaces will remain closed through Labor Day weekend with barriers in place. No parking is allowed except in the parking spaces provided. No vehicles without trailers, picnicking, tents, chairs, grills or other items will be allowed in the Indian Key boat ramp area and no swimming will be allowed in that shoreline area.
