If you're visiting, rent a boat or pontoon boat, and get directions to this island. You'll need to bring all your food and drink out here, but it's mostly free from any trappings of civilization. An absolutely beautiful beach and warm waters most of the year make this an ideal place to unwind

We rented a boat and anchored at Keewaydin Island. It was very relaxing and remote. The water is shallow and it is a good area for shelling. There was also a food pontoon that was conveniently anchored on the island. It was a gorgeous island, we will definitely be back!

We've rented a pontoon and traveled from Marco to Keewaydin Island a few times now and it has definitely become more popular over the years. It's a very secluded sandy beach island north of Marco. This year was by far the busiest I've seen it. We went on a Saturday at 1:00 which may be a popular time to boat... More

Had a great time with friends on Sunday Funday! Rented a boat from Walkers Island Adventures and split the cost with friends! So much fun! Bring your dog!

You must get here via boat, or be a super strong swimmer (not recommended), but an excellent place to get away from the crowds and enjoy a swim in the back water, shelling along the shore, fishing, or just relaxing on the beach! Located just North of Marco Island, it is a great place to go!

So this island is great to go to for the day. One side of the island is where you park your boat (only accessible by boat) and the other side has the most amazing private beach you've ever seen! Joe Biden has a house on this island so when he is there the secret service does not want you to... More

I love Keewaydin, but don't understand why it is listed on Trip Advisor as a Marco Island attraction! If anything I'd say it's closer to Isles of Capri. Worth the boat trip on a Sunday for a day of fun and meeting people. Better shelling at Sand Dollar Spit on Tigertail Beach on the island!

We were looking for peace and quiet... But not the day we went. It was like Spring Break time. We hired kawaydee express to take us out to the island. (They are great! Very reasonable too... http://www.keewaydinexpress.com). We went on Sunday 12/28. Loud music was played. Everyone had the same idea of visiting the island that day. Other than that,... More
