Nice half day trip

Fun place to visit. We rented a boat for the morning at Rose Marina and beached here. The inner water is very serene, so walk around to the Gulf side to have fun in the waves.

Took my visiting daughter and family there earlier this month. The granddaughter had a fun time floating in current with a foam noodle. There are usually a couple of food and beer boats anchored there. During summer it's easy to find a spot to pull your boat in and anchor at shore line. during "season" you need to get there... More

Back again, been coming here over 20 years. Love the ice cream pontoon boat, the plentiful shells, and the wildlife. Can be a busy place on the weekends.

This is a perfect place to take the family. It's not landlocked so you have to take a boat but it's well worth the trip. Great beach on South end. Not crowded in off season

We had a blast on keewaydin island. There were food and icecream vendors. Waded about 200 yards out on the Gulf side found tons of sand dollars and conches. Keep an eye on your boat or you may wind up stuck on the beach when the tide goes out.

We rented a boat and left early in the morning after getting some very brief navigational instructions. We arrived around 8:45 and we were the third boat there and we beached on the mangrove side and walked around to the Gulf side. The trip's highlights were the amazing shells and we stood and watched two manatees that continued to swim... More

There's a channel that separates Keewaydin Island from the mangroves. And depending on the tide, the current can be pretty quick. Just make sure you get back to shore before going out the end into the gulf! Some people say you don't even need a tube because of the salt water. But I think it's better with some sort of... More

We only had a few minutes here during an excursion, but the beach is beautiful, and it stretches forever. If you have time, you could shell that beach all day.

So worth going for a stop if you want to collect shells. The best part is, there are no "animals" inside the shells unlike Marco Island. I would bend over and see a great shell and say, "oh wow, no animal inside"....and that means you can "take" it!!! What a great feeling because I would never take a living sea... More
