Immerse yourself in island bliss at these top 10 Key West spas

Key West is a relaxation destination, but getting there can sometimes wear you down. Travel comes with its inherent stressors--delays at airports, long car rides, sleeping in unfamiliar beds--that can lead to tight necks and aching backs. Fortunately, Key West has plenty of spas that will soothe away your aches and pains and rejuvenate you from the inside out.

Spa al Mare at Casa Marina and The Spa at Sunset Key will quickly immerse you in the sounds and scents of the sea with a massage on the sandy beach. Spa Terre on Little Palm Island takes the waterside pampering one step further by moving the massage table out into the calm shallow waters. Exotic treatments from far-flung locales such as Thailand, Bali and India can be found at spots such as Prana Spa and Spa Terre at Ocean Key Resort.

In addition to massage, these spas offer a wide variety of blissful body treatments like the Milk and Honey Rehydration at the Pier House Spa--perfect for the sunburned skin. The invigorating Morning Mimosa Body Scrub at Ocean Wellness Spa can help you recover from a night on the town. Just need a quick pick-me-up? Try Nailtini on Duval Street where they hand you a martini when you walk in the door before whisking you to a pedicure chair.

Whether you're flying solo, on a romantic getaway or a girl’s weekend, these ten best spas in Key West will quickly put you on island time.
