The islands lie along theFlorida Straits, dividing theAtlantic Oceanto the east from theGulf of Mexicoto the west, and defining one edge ofFlorida Bay. At the nearest point, the southern tip of Key West is just 94 miles (151 km) fromCuba. The Florida Keys are between about 23.5 and 25.5 degrees North latitude, in thesubtropics.
