I’m an ocean lover, so it’s obvious that the Florida Keys would be on my vacation list. I was able to spend an entire summer in this corner of the world. Going on excursions, glass bottom boat trips, and kayaking amongst the mangroves, plus the occasional dive at the reefs – the months there were fantastic.
Being a solo trip, I was also on the lookout for lovely ladies to spend some of my days with – and Key West has no shortage of sexy singles. I encountered a mix of locals and well as tourists like me out to have a good time, and will share tips from my trip here.

With the ‘Hot or Not?’ feature, you can quickly swipe to find potential matches but to send direct messages or view full profiles, you will need to have paid membership.

The platform brings together singles searching for casual hook-ups, couples looking for that extra thrill in the bedroom, swingers, and transgenders – they are all here, averaging 395,000 monthly visits. Serious long-term relationships are a myth in Sexfinder.
You get to browse through hundreds of Key West babe profiles with filters for kinks and fetishes. You can communicate through webcam streams, chatrooms, direct messages, and send a virtual gift to other members.
While you can read the messages you get in your inbox for free, you cannot respond without subscribing to one of the paid plans. Gold membership gives you access to advanced searches, the Sex academy, and also adding members to the Hotlist. The mobile app version is only available for iOS users.
The site is flooded with women, outnumbering men 5:1, increasing your chances of getting laid in Key West. The US alone has 36 million member accounts, with the most voted-for members being featured in the “What’s Hot” section. Signup just takes a few minutes, and you get to interact with users through instant messaging (with Gold membership), as well as live webcam and blogging, where you get to tell stories and comment on others – making it more personal instead of just seeing them as sex objects.
With a free account, you can see the profile summary, but for full profile viewing, you’ll need a paid membership. Kink search allows you to narrow down your sexual preferences. No mobile app is available for either iOS or Android.

What You Need to Know Before Dating a Woman from Key West, Florida
- She’s probably a tourist
Yes, there are local Key West babes at the party joints and checking out the sights and sounds, but a huge proportion of the ladies here are on vacation. So, when that chemistry is going well, it may be just for the short duration of her visit
- The dreaded verbal barrier
She’s smoking hot – but only speaks fluent Spanish. That’s another hit that comes when you’re trying to pick up girls on an island packed with tourists. Of course, this won’t be a problem if you’re multilingual.
- If you’ve got insecurities, they’ll be put to the test
Warm weather means there’ll be everything from half-naked studs on the beach to hunks paddling out on the waves – and your date’s eyes WILL land on them. She’s only human. And you’ll also find your eyes wandering over all the babes in sexy beach bods…which brings us to the next point.
- Everything will be thrown at you
Babes leaving behind their bikini tops, plastic boobs flaunted in all their glory, singles who are a solid 10 strutting around in little-to-no clothing – but don’t forget you’re on a date. As fabulous as the lady by your side is, she still recognizes competition all around, so make her feel comfortable to be around you, and don’t go ogling after every sweet babe that strolls by.
