Big Pine Key, at mile marker 33, is the largest of the Lower Keys and lies within the Key Deer and White Heron National Wildlife Refuges. Big Pine Key is just 30 miles north of Key West. There are several other islands of the Lower Keys famous for their homey resorts, family-oriented neighborhoods and easy access to the water including Summerland Key, Big Torch and Little Torch Keys, Cudjoe Key, Sugarloaf Key and Big Coppitt Key.
