we came her to dive the wrecks on the keys, which are worth doing. however, the water was colder than we thought so had to by some extra neoprene. island Bay is charming, almost quaint. cottages are comfortable with necessary amenities, the beach are is quiet and relaxing with plenty of shaded areas. location is fine, two very good restaurants within a couple of miles: Snappers and Marker 88. supermarket is a mile south and has all one needs. we used Conch Divers, which is also one mile south, very friendly and efficient dive operation, but not guided unless required.
