"New island? ?Sunset Key? (was ?Tank Island)" Tank Island by grandmaR

Tank Island Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 1 photos

This Key was named for large fuel storage tanks erected here by the U.S. Navy in the 1960s. This wasn't such a romantic name, so it was renamed Sunset Key by developers. Now it has exclusive homes (no way to get here except by boat) and Sunset Key Guest Cottages at Hilton Key West Resort.

Geographic Location:

Located just to the west of Key West. The islands also provide protection from some direstions of wind for vessels to anchor.
