Upcoming Events

Annual PAPOA  Membership &
April Board Meetings

April 18, 2020

Sea Base Conference Room

We have had a busy 2019, and we’ll go over where the money has gone, the results of the Beach Survey and what we have planned for the future.  One topic of discussion will undoubtedly be the 2020 budget.  We will also be talking about anything else you might wish to bring up.

Three Board Members are up for reelection.  If you are interested in serving on the Board, please let Mari know sooner rather than later.  And include a biography.

Watch your mailbox for a ballot and more information.  Please carefully follow the instructions for returning the ballot and be sure to mail it back to us.

Ballots will be counted at the Islamorada Library beginning at 4 pm on April 17th.  This meeting is open to the membership.

The April Board meeting will be held immediately following the Annual Meeting.

Recent Fun…

Our Winter Celebration!

A couple of dozen folks put up with the 20 knot winds to enjoy some outstanding Hors d’Oeuvres (especially the yummy shrimp) and some even better comaraderie at the Beach for our Winter Celebration.

President Dave spoke about issues facing the Association, touching on the upcoming budget deficit, golf carts, and of course, the trespassers and other problems at our Beach.  All in all, very  informative!  Thank you, Dave, for listening to our concerns.

And thank you, Esther, for putting on a great event.

Cookie Exchange on the Beach

The popular get-together was held on December 7th.  Thank you to everyone who brought and shared cookies.  For those of you who didn’t make it, you missed out on some fabulous treats!

Lots of People and Lots of Food

Sunset Celebration!

October 5, 2019

About 60 people trickled in an out for a fantastic time on the Beach.  The “appetizers” were more like main courses and were delicious!  The company was supurb, and all had a great time.

If you couldn’t make it, please check back here for the next event and come out to meet new friends and renew acquaintances.

A Fourth Filled with FUN

July 4-7, 2019

People lounging in the cool(?) waters just offshore, a white sandy beach, the smell of hamburgers and hot dogs cooking on a grill … all the ingredients one needed for a wonderful time in Port Antigua!

The Food’s Almost Ready!

While the offshore waters were crowded, the beach had plenty of room to play volleyball, horseshoes, or to just lay out in the sun!.

Just Enough Room for One More


The parking lot was busy, and the overflow lot next to the boat ramp had its share of occupants.

Memorial Day at the Beach

May 25 – 27, 2019

The winds kept many folks close to shore this Memorial Day weekend, and quite a few decided to visit the Beach.  While there were MANY boats anchored in the shallow waters, there was plenty of room for people to picnic on the beach.  There was even an open Tiki hut on Saturday afternoon!

Building Sand Castles!

Weary Beach Goers Head for Home

Picnicking on the Beach


The sand piles were popular with the youngsters and oldsters alike. 



Wide Open Spaces!

And a robust Sheriff’s Deputies presence kept trespassers down and the more rowdy partyers tame.  See the “News” for a bit more on that!

All Ready For Customers!

Community Wide Yard Sale

March 30, 2019

Okay, maybe it wasn’t so much “Recent Fun,” but those who participated in the Yard Sale did say it was a success.  There was an early morning traffic jam on El Capitan as that street took the prize for the most yard sales.

Chili Pot-Luck

March 2, 2019
Lots of fun! Lots of Food! And Lots of Friends – new and old!
While the beautiful fishing day was just too tempting for some, the gathering on the beach was dubbed a success by all who attended.
Numerous recipes and fishing tales were swapped!
