The Florida Keys


An Island Community
A small islet in the Atlantic Ocean off Mile Marker 61, Duck Key is occupied today by a residential community (Hawk's Cay Village) and the Hawk's Cay Resort & Marina. Magnificent palms, lush foliage, clear waters, exceptional fishing and diving opportunities, and that Keys-famous laid back atmosphere consistently draw both visitors and home-buyers alike.

By Keys standards, Duck Key is a relatively new town, developed in large part as a result of the island's purchase by Bryan Newkirk in 1956. An international financier and mining executive, Newkirk and his partners set out to develop a 400 acre, upscale island community with such amenities as a yacht harbor and club, golf course, tennis courts, and more. An improved entry causeway was built; interconnecting canals served as landfill. In the end, 5 islands were created: Indies, Centre, Harbour, Plantation and Yacht Club.

Duck Key was sold in the early 1980's, and the Hawk's Cay Resort and Village were developed. In addition to extensive tourist, recreational and convention facilities, there are some 400 homes on the Key today. The community is internally connected by 4 bridges, 10 miles of paved road, and boasts more than 10 miles of water frontage.
