ECOLOGICALLY FRIENDLY

LFK aims to create an ecologically friendly place by getting their electricity from a wind turbine with zero carbon footprint, collecting all the rainwater from the roofs for daily usage and irrigation and housing a Piranha Sewage System; a bio-digested (closed loop) system with zero discharge to the sea. Recycling is of utmost priority on LFK, and it's performed wherever possible. To keep the balance of their ecosystem, LFK maintains a minimal footprint with no sewage system. LFK is also involved with an animal rehabilitation program that rescues various indigenous and exotic animals for the benefit of those animals, and that has an indirect benefit to the Roatan community. 

PRO TIP: If you have any food allergies, you can substitute your meal for gluten and shellfish free or to vegetarian.

GEOGRAPHICAL LOCATION

Little French Key is an Eco-Friendly development on a private key. The Key has a natural charm to it. Little French Key (LFK), is surrounded by calm, clear, warm turquoise waters and it is located in the southern part of Roatan. The gentle breeze and the sound of the waves crashing against the barrier reef make this an ideal place to relax and soak it in. Every bit of the key's construction was designed to preserve the key's natural resources and beauty. Join us and stay for a while.  

WINDWARD SIDE OF ROATAN

The Little French Key is located in the southern part of the Roatan island. In fact, the Roatan Yacht Club is just behind the key, in what is referred to as a "lagoon." The lagoon is a section of calm water protected by the barrier reef on one end and the main island on the other. Little French Key has the lagoon on its back, and it borders the reef on its southern end. Beyond the reef, the water can be choppy and rough as the winds flow from the south. But the water around the key is protected, clear, relatively shallow and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. 

PRO TIP: LFK’s Average capacity is 100-150 people per day.
