Heroes Salute

Clear, turquoise waters; swaying palm trees; warm tropical breezes; lush accommodations and never-ending relaxation— if it’s your time to take leave for some much needed R & R, Hawks Cay Resort in the beautiful Florida Keys is the ideal place to accomplish your mission. From August 1st through December 19, 2019, the serene island escape is saying “thank you for your service and sacrifice” to all the men and women (both past and present) of the military, fire and rescue, police, sworn officers and medical personnel, by offering a very special discounted room rate starting at only $129 a night on weekdays.

This annual Heroes Salute program includes value-added offers for water sports activities, a weekly outdoor Heroes’ Tribute ceremony and more. In addition to the Heroes Salute activities Hawks Cay has lined up, the resort offers a wealth of adventure and leisure opportunities for you and your family to enjoy.

Heroes Salute Weekend

Are you or someone you love a hero? We are honoring all the heroes (military, fire and rescue, law enforcement and all medical personnel) this fall in our weekly Heroes Salute tribute ceremony and slideshow.

If your hero is staying with us this Fall, be sure to provide the dates of stay at the resort so that the hero’s photo can be shown during the ceremony they are attending.
