First off, the beach and the swimming is first class. You can have fun exploring on land by bicycle or on the water using the rentable very stable sit-on-top Ocean Kayaks.
There is also some great snorkeling at a nearby island. Charter boats are available for hire during season and saltwater fishing is good provided you have a license. There is a gift shop handy with a good range of supplies and the snack bar has pizza, sandwiches and salads. The park is located in Key Largo at mile marker 37.
This Resort is located at mile marker 97 and lies between the scenic Florida Bay on the North and the dazzling waters of the Gulf of Mexico, on the South.
The Resort faces the Gulf of Mexico and is just bursting with amenities to make your stay the best ever. If you are a typical tourist, your first stop, after checking in, is to the beach for a swim in that silky aquamarine Gulf water.
After your refreshing swim you will want to check out the amenities starting with such things as the hobiecats, wave runners, parasailing and jet skiing.
There are nature trails in the forest and outdoor tennis courts with lighting for evening tennis. A 21-slip boat marina awaits you if you’re arriving by boat.
On the Gulf the snorkeling is such a beautiful sport that the Hilton Key Largo has what you need. Remember this, you won't be out of touch with high-speed internet access in each room.
The Park has nearly 50 campsites which are usable by RV campers or tents. There are three good beach areas for swimming. One of them, called Cannon Beach, features the remains of an old Spanish ship which is just off-shore. Fishing is allowed with a license plus some special Florida rules. There are three ways to enjoy this underwater park: snorkeling, scuba diving and glassbottom boats.
The park attendants will arrange tours for each of the three. The snorkeling tour is arranged with the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary for a 1 1/2 hour.
The scuba tours are very popular so ask for detail with the Park Rangers. The glassbottom boat , Spirit of Pennekamp, is a 65 foot high speed catamaran. The crew know all of the best locations for good viewing in the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary so put you entertainment in their hands and you will get some of the best photos ever.
The resort has everything you need for a memorable vacation. Some of the activities include water-sports, spa facilities, volleyball, whirlpool, a private sunning beach, poolside refreshments plus a fine set of fitness machines. There are also some outside activities such as table tennis, shuffle board foosball and air hockey.
It’s no secret that the waters around Key Largo are just perfect for both snorkeling and scuba diving. The scuba diving is particularly popular here. So much so that Marriott’s Bay Beach Resort has the offices of Pirate Island Divers right on their premises. They have all the equipment you would need plus certified diving instructors.
They also have a full complement of water-sport activities such as wave runners, kayaks and fishing equipment of all types. You just might find a romantic sunset cruise to spice up your life.
