The Bat Tower
You'll find the tower down a
dirt road, just off the road to
the Sugarloaf Airport, bayside
at MM 17.
The Bat Tower is one of the most unique attractions in the Keys.  Entrepreneur Richter
Perky, who wished to establish a fishing camp in Sugarloaf Key, built it in 1929.  He
erected the Bat Tower as part of a chemical-free plan to thwart pesky mosquitoes on his
property.  Unfortunately, Mr. Perkey passed away before he could carry out his innovation
strategy.
The Blue Hole
Big Pine Key
The Blue Hole is an abandoned
limestone quarry.  The rock material
removed was used to build many of the
original roads on Big Pine Key.  Since
there is no inlet or outlet to the Blue
Hole, its existence is dependent on
rainfall and from salt water which flows
through the surrounding limestone.  
Fish, turtles, alligators and the
occasional wading bird can be found in
the Blue Hole.  Alligators can often be
seen hugging the shoreline, lazily
sunning themselves.

Access for the disabled is provided.
