. This twenty acre facility has restaurants, open air bars, museums, boutiques, bait shops, markets, dive shops and more. It has also become a major port of call for cruise ships that dock nearby and invite their passengers to spend the day. Duval Street and Whitehead Street are within walking distance which adds to the number of shops, restaurants, and bars to be seen and enjoyed. If you'd like to take a guided tour of Key West
the tourist trams are also within walking distance from Mallory Square.
If you come to Key West by land to spend a week or two you can enjoy even more of what Key West Bight has to offer in the way of water sports. You can sail on a historic schooner, book a sunset cruise or take a catamaran trip to the reef, charter a boat to go fishing , go diving, or try parasailing, the view from the air is spectacular. If you prefer to stay on land you can take a walking tour of the Key West Bight Marina, Old Town Key West, Duval Street
and Key West itself.
