short boat trip from Rose Marina to paradise on this deserted peninsula, we had the beach to ourselves. If you like pristine Carribean blue waters and white powdery sand, and all the shells you can carry, get to Keewaydin.

Great place to visit on the boat but get here early as it gets crowded quickly. There's usually a couple that turns up by boat and serve hot dogs and fries, cold drinks, chips etc on the beach. Walk through to the ocean side, great for sand dollars. Be careful of tides though, can be quite a strong tidal pull... More

Don't miss going to this place I call paradise. View dolphins right in front of you frolicking in the water, collect amazing shells, experience the softest sand, and take a hike around. Bring beach chairs, food and drink, and feel like you are in heaven. Do yourself a favor.....GO.

Keewaydin Island can only be accessed by boat. We got to go on the island by taking the Eco Tour through Pure Naples. It was a relaxing walk on the beach and many collected shells.

Every year we rent a couple of boats from Marco's Marina and take the hour boat ride to Keewaydin Island. When we first started going to this 7 mile isolated island...no one was ever there. The beautiful white sand facing the Gulf of Mexico is breathtaking. Our last visit to the island we noticed more people and a cool place... More

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!
