Default Day Passes to Sunset Key in Key West

Has anyone been able to walk into the Hilton and purchase day passes for Sunset Key? We have an overnight in Key West and would like to get some beach time.

I stayed at the Hilton once and they even charge their guests a fee for boat transportation to Sunset Key so don't believe they offer day passes to visitors. There is a beach very close that you can go to...it's at Fort Zachary Taylor State Park. Entrance to the Park is through the Truman Annex right near the pier. I recommend a taxi for the short ride to the Park (it's too hot in Key West to walk although I have seen people do this). You can tour the Fort if you like or just hit the beach. You can rent lounge chairs and there are restroom facilities and a snack bar and picnic tables. The beach is protected by rock outcroppings which you can swim out to and snorkel. The water is usually crystal clear. If you have a pair of water shoes, bring them along, the beach has lots of shells and little pebbles. I usually bring my chair to the water's edge. It's a nice beach to get in a little tanning time and the water is beautiful to swim in.
