Palm Key is an island located in Florida Bay near latitude 25°7'N, and longitude 80°53'W, or about 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of the town of Flamingo, Florida. Naval charts show it to be a small oval-shaped island approximately 0.5 miles (0.80 km) in length. While it is now apparently uninhabited it was once inhabited by fishermen. In fiction it is the home and base of operations for Dr. Benton Quest of the TV series Jonny Quest.
