Marina at the Bitter End Yacht Club
Some people plan summer road trips. For others, a summer adventure involves sailing or yachting on the high seas. But long boating trips are no fun without stopping to see the sights on land and stretching out your sea legs.
Luckily, these nine hotels, in beautiful locales ranging from the Caribbean to the Northeastern U.S., are situated right on marinas — so yachties can park and fuel up both their bodies and their boats. Some resorts, such as Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys, let boaters sleep on board and still access all of the pools, restaurants, and activities on-site — all for no more than the docking fee.
We’ll kick off the impending start of spring with another amazing, relaxing Oyster Shot — this time from the picturesque shores of Key Biscayne, just south of Miami, Florida. Like its sister hotels, the Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne offers travelers impeccable service — and since it’s not in South Beach, expect a quieter, more tranquil crowd around, ideal for our Monday morning. So as we always say, sit back, take a deep breath, and soak in the goodness that is Key Biscayne.

We just returned from the Florida Keys, which is home to one of the largest barrier reef systems in the world. It’s as close to the Caribbean as you can get in the U.S., and most visitors come here for incredible snorkeling and scuba diving, the great weather, and the partying, of course. Though it can get rowdy (especially on Key West), the vibe is mostly laid-back. Check out some of the hotel highlights from our trip after the jump>>
