Renting some kind of watercraft is a really good idea when you are staying in Key Colony Beach. Because the area is protected, you can do the stand up paddle boards or kayaks very easily. Of course it is nice to rent a motor boat and take advantage of the reefs that are offshore. If your budget does not allow any kind of motor boat rental, the next best bet is a kayak which is cheap and really entertaining to do for two to five hours. If you are renting a unit on Key Colony Beach, you can get over to the marina on your bicycles in less than five minutes.
