Key Colony Beach Inlet is located on Fat Deer Creek and allows access from Hawk Channel to the Key Colony Beach development and the marinas available inside.
Use NOAA Chart 11453.
Approach from the south. Red daybeacon 2, a privately maintained aid, is the first mark to pick up on your way in. Green daybeacons 1 and 3, which you may sight on the way in to the, mark a one- to three-foot-deep area to the southwest of the entrance. The inlet channel itself reportedly holds eight-foot depths, but quickly shallows to between one and three feet fairly rapidly farther in.
