Not too many in parking lot for a summer Sunday. Even fewer folks on the beach. Took the dog and we walked the entire smallish coastline. What a great way to spend a summer morning. There was algae on the shoreline but not smelly.

Horrible! You start smelling the rotten sea walking towards the beach. The mounds and mounds of sea grass all over the beach and the water is brown!

Just go ahead and stay in Key West. The keys are not a “beach” destination. This community does not respect their town. Trash everywhere! No clean up efforts after storm. Not much to do in Marathon. A lot of businesses still closed. We did eat...More
