The island of Tavernier is firmly rooted in history and can date the appearance of its name as early as 1775. Similar to other places in Florida, early Spanish and French explorers were involved in naming the islands of the Florida Keys. Tavernier’s name may have its roots from French settlers which can be translated to ‘tavern keeper’ in French. Tavernier is about two miles long from mile markers 92 to 90 and located on the island of Key Largo. Tavernier is wonderfully distinct as are the beautiful cottages and wonderful waterfront parcels that make up the community.
