Key Haven is an unincorporated community on Raccoon Key, an island in the lower Florida Keys approximately one mile east of the island of Key West. It is a suburb of greater Key West, and houses approximately a thousand residents. The city limits of Key West on northern Stock Island are separated from Key Haven by a channel about a quarter mile wide.
The island, being only 2–3 ft above the high tide mark, was covered with 4–5 ft of seawater from the 8 ft (2.4 m) storm surge of Hurricane Wilma on October 24, 2005. Nearly every car on the island was destroyed, and many homes damaged.
