Beautiful beach accessible by boat from Marco Island. You can pull your boat on the sand and walk the pristine beaches, shell searching or birding. However, especially on week ends and holidays numerous partying and sherrif vessels patroling for drinking and boat driving. Remember your sunscreen, food, water and safety equipment, as law enforcemrnt do come aboard and check. And... More

Shelling, Floating, Drinking, Relaxing... What else could you want? However you get there, find it, enjoy it, you won't be disappointed.

Good fishing spot, great place for a beach party. Great place when it isn't crowded. Great place to kick back & enjoy the sun & surf.

So much fun. We stopped with our pontoon boat. Definitely go when the tide is going in or out and you can use noodles or life vest to float along with your beverage of choice!

Beautiful spot to go to if you rent a boat or have one. Don't go on weekends in season and sometimes even in summer if you can avoid it because often too many boats there. Great spot with advantage of inside water and walking over to ocean side beach! so beautiful!!

Very cool place to paddle & spend the day. Lot of boaters & sometimes they do not play nice with kayaks.

The island is beautiful and the water crystal clear with little traffic. There are tons of shells and we even saw a seaturtle. Be sure that you take water and food with you though because it's at least 30 minutes each way from the Marina

Maybe we made a big mistake by going on the Saturday of Labor Day weekend (it's just how our schedule worked out), but by the time we showed up in our rental pontoon at the area to "park" on the intracoastal side of the island (about noonish), it was like the tailgating parking lot before a big football game.
