Party Island

Great island to hang out with some friends and beers. Have to boat there and bring all food and drink with you. There is sometimes a food pontoon.

A short boat ride from Marco Island... great ride if you have older passengers, small children or short on time... The destination is wonderful, pull your boat up to the shore and enjoy the beautiful water and sun.... also take some cash and enjoy the food vendors selling ice cream hot dogs and ice cold drinks from their boats....a lot...

Our family rented a boat at Rose Marina and we were lucky to have chosen a perfect day for boating and shelling. The island's unspoiled beauty is always a joy to revisit.

We always take a boat out and come here when we are in Naples. Great fun. Lots of people fishing. Swimming and generally partying. Can get busy at the weekends.

This was a fun outing as we took a boat to get there. We caught some nice fish off the end of the island too. Not much different though than any of the other beaches around.

Rented a boat from Rose Marina on Marco and spent the afternoon here. Park boat on channel and walk along the Gulf shore of the island. Good shallow sand bars, good shelling and very soft white sand. If you walk far enough you can get some privacy. Lots of boats here in season. Fun to get there too through the... More

If I lived here year round, this would be a place I visited regularly! We were fortunate to avoid the crowds and be able to enjoy a day of peace and relaxation on what felt like our own private island. Amazing!

If you have access to a boat and can work your way to Keewadin do it. You will be away from the beach crowds. There are a couple of boats that tie up and serve food and drinks. If you don't have a boat you can catch a "ferry" from behind the Speakeasy
