Good Stay at Banana Bay Resort and Marina, Marathon, FL, off Florida Keys Inside Route, St. M. 1191.5, on Marthon Peninsula’s North Shore

Posted by Larry Dorminy | Posted on 08-22-2011

Banana Bay Marina & Resort lies along the northern shores of the Marathon peninsula, east of the Marathon Yacht Club.

BANANA BAY RESORT AND MARINA.
We docked our 40 foot Carver at Banana Bay Resort and Marina for the month of July taking advantage of their summer monthly rates. Larry Wade the dock master did everything possible to make our stay enjoyable including personally checking with us on a daily basis. We used Banana Bay as our home base for cruising and fishing the Keys as we were centrally located with easy access to the ICW as well as the offshore reefs. While docked at the Marina we had full use of the resort facilities. We mainly used the pool and tiki bar. They have (4) nice clean showers, laundry room and boaters lounge. Free internet service was strong throughout marina. Home Depot, Publix, Walgreen, and good restaurants are within walking distance. West Marine and rental cars are within 2 miles. The Resort extends special room rates at the resort for Marina customers. We took advantage of this to have family visit with us. We plan on returning next summer.
Marina not presently shown on map view but on North side of Marathon adjacent to pretty Joe rock.
