Tropical Dreams and Endless Ocean Fun at Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina
We stayed in an Oceanfront King Suite, and it was so big for us (love it though!). If you are a family, this is an ideal room, but there are even larger rooms if you want!
But if you are a couple, book a cottage in the new complex. It is private and intimate and opens to its own small beach. It is really nice!
Also, if you have pets, they are welcome here. Just bring them over instead of worrying who will look after them while you are on vacation.
Tropical splendor flows freely on the chic boathouse-style accommodation at Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina. White beddings, nautical accents, and the many shades of blue create the feeling of being embraced by the ocean. The ambiance is really refreshing, and the ocean views are nothing short of mesmerizing!

Non-motorized water sports – All sorts of adventures can be experienced here. Try the floating trampoline, paddle boards, peddle boats, bicycles, or kayaks and have fun by the water all day long.
Water activities – Fill your days with boating, fishing, diving, and snorkeling experiences. Rent or charter a boat with an experienced captain and indulge in offshore and backcountry fishing – a must in Islamorada!
Alternatively, you can get rentals and lessons on a jet ski, kayak, and kiteboarding for a more adrenaline-filled adventure. Paddleboards, cruises, a dive shop, and party boat are all available, too.
Marina – 19 transient slips are available for vessels up to 100 ft. Water, electricity, Wi-Fi, and access to resort amenities are provided, too.
The island vibe runs through the food and drinks choices at Postcard Inn Beach Resort & Marina. We loved the Holiday Isle Tiki Bar! They gave us a $125 voucher to sample the drinks, and it was awesome. The best part? This is the original home of the rum runner cocktail. It was invented here in 1972. There is no better place to have one!
Also, the breakfast we had at Raw Bar is nice. It is the usual eggs benedict and bagels, but they also offer a lot of seafood favorites like oysters, fish tacos, and conch chowder. Relax as you dine while enjoying the ocean views, listening to live music, and drinking a frozen rum runner, or two!
Finally, there is the Ciao Hound, an Italian restaurant that marries authentic Tuscan flavors with locally sourced ingredients. But its most special feature? The pet-friendly offerings! Here, you can enjoy your polenta and puttanesca while your beloved pets are served their own food and beverages, too!
