48 SAND SECRET
The Florida Keys is renowned
for its amazingly clear water
and white-sand beaches. Bet
you didn’t know that most of
the sand found on Key West
beaches was shipped in from
various parts of The Caribbean.
It’s good to be religious when
you’re a small island in the
middle of hurricane territory.

its size, Key West has more
churches than any other place
in the U.S.
As you might know, Key West
is closer to Havana than
Miami. Diana Nyad was 64
when she set a world record
for swimming the distance
without a shark cage. It was
her 5th attempt.
