We came to this island as part of a dolphin tour. Beautiful and very few people on it as it is only accessible by boat. Another tour came while we were there.

We rented a boat and made our stop at the Island. We docked on the one side and there were about 8 other boats there. We walked over to the gulf side and not a single person was on the beach. We felt like we had the island to ourselves. The sand has a couple shells but you are able... More

Great fun . We had friends with a boat but you can rent and make a day here. There is usually a hamburger boat there. A pontoon with a grill! Very clean and an elderly couple ran it. Shells and loads of fun. Bring shoes for walking due to standouts. Enjoy!

Stopped here on dolphin tour. Water colors were spectacular with white sand beach. Lots of broken shells. Beach was somewhat quiet and was nice to walk. Lovely setting.

This use to be one of our favorite places to boat to, but the last few years it has become a place to party. Trying to find a place to anchor poses a problem especially during peak season. This is a place for young people who like loud music and love to party. If you are lucky enough to find... More

Our family rented a pontoon boat on Marco Island and took a leisurely ride to Keewaydin Island. Contrary to another reviewer’s opinion, we found the journey very much worth the effort (and cost) as opposed to keeping ourselves entertained elsewhere. While the beach is very remote and a beautiful amenity, we found the time getting there the true reward. It... More

There is always a scene here during Spring Break! Bring your sunscreen and your adult beverages. Boats will be beached like cars at the mall.

A neighbor and his wife invited my wife and I to take a boat ride to this wonderful island which is only accessible by water. We started our trip from the Naples Harbour Yacht club and made our way through the canal. Along our way we passed Tin city, the Boat House and then into Naples bay. There were numerous... More

Besides the lovely boat ride there and back, the island is a nice place to visit for the afternoon. We were surprised that many people just stayed by their boats on the waterway side, while just a short walk away was a lovely and uncrowded Gulf beach. We spent quite a bit of time shelling, finding a large conch and... More
