Key Colony Beach Florida

Key Colony Beach Florida is right in the middle of the glorious Florida Keys.

The crystal clear water is ideal for snorkeling, but the waves here are pretty active so you might prefer to surf or wave-board.

Private residences occupy much of the beach, so access to this pristine beach is easiest from one of the beachfront motels.

Bring underwater camera!

Stay on the beach and listen to the water lap up on the shore at night. Then get up early and go beach combing.

There may be something to the old saying, "the early bird gets the worm" because treasures wash up all night from the depths of the ocean and you may be the first to find something that no one else has ever seen.

Fish are plentiful here at Key Colony Beach Florida so fishing is a popular activity. Even better, eating fish tonight so fresh that it swam earlier today.



Snorkeling and diving are very popular because there are some magnificent underwater reefs here. Check out our article on Snorkeling; it is a wonderful thing to do and part of the Florida experience.

With less than 1,000 residents, Key Colony Beach gives off a small town vibe but still has plenty of fun activities for tourists to enjoy.
