The large painted buoy is a tourist attraction established in 1983 by the city at the corner of South Street and Whitehead Street. Cuba is 90 miles south of this point in Key West. The southernmost point was originally just marked with a small sign, which was often moved or taken, the City of Key West erected the now famous concrete buoy in 1983.
