Facilities & Activities

The array of activities and facilities at the Hawks Cay Resort is vast – and guarantee a very memorable holiday.  If you’re looking to kick back and unwind this is the perfect place to relax.  Surrounded by lush palm trees, the resort pools are perfect for a refreshing swim, or you might prefer to curl up and read a book on a lounger, soaking up the charming island atmosphere.  There’s music and entertainment at the spacious resort pool, as well as spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, or you can treat yourself to a private cabana at the adult-only Tranquillity Pool.  The Indies Pool sits in an incredibly serene setting or you can enjoy the hidden oasis that is the Sunset Pool – as its name suggests, a great place to admire the beautiful Florida Keys sunset.

The enclosed Saltwater Lagoon is your own private ocean where you can lay back and soak up some rays, empty your mind and enjoy the sounds of nature; the gentle lapping of the waves surrounding you and the gentle chirping of exotic birds provide a welcome respite from your busy life and help to relax body and mind. When you can tear yourself away from your sun lounger you can search for small tropical fish with a snorkel or visit the neighbouring Dolphin Connection to watch or even swim with dolphins – a magical experience.

The Calm Waters Spa offers indulgent spa treatments and therapies that utilise the natural ingredients and aromas of the islands. Beauty treatments are also available and you can enjoy a blissful Jacuzzi or dry sauna here too.

If you’re looking to do something active, the resort boasts an excellent fitness centre plus tennis courts and bikes for hire.  There are also dive trips and scuba lessons for all ages and skill levels, kiteboarding lessons, paddle boarding and snorkelling trips.  Down at Sundance Watersports on the resort’s Marina you can also try everything from kayaking and fishing to parasailing or you can simply to choose to unwind some more and take a leisurely sunset cruise where you’ll enjoy spectacular views of the Florida Keys with a glass of champagne in hand.
