How do I login to a droplet where I forgot to whitelist the SSH port

So I forgot to add port 22 to the Firewall whitelist and now I can’t login.

Also, I can only login to my droplet using SSH key.

Is there a way around this? Or should I destroy the droplet and create a new one with the port whitelisted?

Thank you.
