Coco Plum Beach

Although officially designated as a part of Marathon, Coco Plum Beach is actually a 5-6 minute drive from the city, tucked up beside Key Colony Beach.

Coco Plum Beach Real Estate

Coco Plum Beach’s central location (both in regards to downtown Marathon and the Florida Keys as a whole) makes the homes for sale extremely desirable. Large lot sizes, generous driveway and front yard space, and private water access are just some of the aspects that make Coco Plum Beach real estate appealing to many. There are also options to rent out your home on a weekly basis (should you not be there all year round), but the rules and regulations of doing so are subject to Marathon laws. Contact an agent at The New Home Spot for more information. 

In terms of architecture, the homes in Coco Plum Beach are generally built in a sunny, beachy Florida style, often in white or pastel colors. Many of the single-family beach houses are built on stilts or utilize archways, incorporating drive-under garages into the design. Wrap-around porches, gates, and exterior stairs leading up to the elevated first level are other common features.

There are a few condominium and townhouse complexes for sale in Coco Plum Beach. The complexes can be relatively tall, with Bonefish Towers being the only high-rise in the entirety of the Florida Keys. These condominiums are equipped with modern features and amenities, such as private pools, tennis courts, beach access, and more, yet all maintain that characteristic coastal-style architecture. 

Coco Plum Beach Highlights and Amenities

The quiet little area encompasses the best parts of living in the Florida Keys: easy access to shopping and restaurants, private water and dock access for boat enthusiasts, and beautiful ocean views. 

Although most properties in Coco Plum Beach have their own dock, there are several marinas that one might use when visiting. These include Bonefish Marina, Marathon Sailfish Marina, Shelter Bay Marine, and Outta The Blue Marina. There are also opportunities to rent a boat in Coco Plum Beach, as well as spots that will take you sightseeing and fishing.

Coco Plum Beach is also recognized for its beach areas, namely Cocoa Plum Beach. Its stunning white sand and beautiful views attract a lot of people, namely those who love to take a stroll by the water and those spending time outdoors with their furry friends. Although not a prime spot for swimming, this beach is recognized as a sea turtle nesting spot.

Also in Coco Plum Beach is the White Marlin Resort and Marina, which attracts tourists for its dock and barbeque area. There are also several options for shopping, including two seafood markets, general retail and boutique shops, and a gas station. 

Perhaps most importantly, Coco Plum Beach is only a 6-minute drive from central Marathon, which offers a much wider range of shopping and restaurant options. Along the Overseas Highway, you’ll find great eats, like Island Fish Company, Sparky’s Landing, Keys Rotisserie, and Driftwood Pizza, Pasta, & Subs. 

Those who love the outdoors may also enjoy a visit to the Curry Hammock State Park Trail (as part of Curry Hammock State Park). This is a great destination for campers, hikers, and kayakers, but also for those who like to kiteboard, snorkel, or just relax at the beach. This area has picnic and fishing areas available and is recognized as a great place to see local wildlife, which can include dolphins, manatees, jellyfish, and so much more.
