Review of The Moorings Village & Spa, Islamorada
Discovered by Spanish explorers, Islamorada (purple island in Spanish) is thought to have been named such thanks to the astonishing purple hued sunsets that grace the skies. One of the most enjoyable location shoots I’ve had the good fortune to experience was a week at The Moorings, Islamorada, shooting a swimwear collection. I’ve always loved the Florida Keys, it is the epitome of a laid-back, luxury lifestyle, and so far removed from my own rather stressed city life! Unlike many paradise spots that attract wealthy tourists and residents alike, you rarely see people dressed in anything more upmarket than flip-flops and a Bermuda shirt here, so my advice is to leave your finest togs at home and prepare to live at a m..u..c…h slower pace than usual.
