We had a great day on the island! The kids were so happy that we were parked right next to the food and ice cream pontoons. Make sure to bring your chairs and umbrellas, sand toys and cold drinks. The food barge isn't allowed to sell adult beverages.

Beautiful, clear water and white sand. Kayaked here and explored parts of the island. We also chased Dolphins, that swam right under us... amazing!

Accessible only by boat. Water is clean and clear. Watch the tides if you return to Marco Island the short way heading south. It can get pretty shallow. To and from Marco via intercoastal well mark by channel markers. During peak season this place gets very busy.

The island out here is beautiful with patches of blue water. Dolphins are a very common sight to see in fact two swam right next to me. You can even go on the beach and rent some watercraft if you'd like.

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.
