This is my me and my husband's second trip here. We had a fun, relaxing day at Maya Key. It's a small island, so we rode a small ferry from the port. The beach is very clean and they rescue and rehab many animals, which...More

It's an ok beach, the shore is not too big, so there is not a lot going on, but is okay to lay on the beach

If off beach at beach dive site, (backside of the key) or at the dolphin key I don’t believe so. If you go out with a dive board and you didn’t book a dive package I believe yes.
