Lovely boat trip out - we love going to Keeywaydin. The island is small, there are no facilities, you just chill on your boat and enjoy the peace or walk along the shoreline. Sometimes its not quite so peaceful if there are a lot of boats there, especially if some decide they're going to play loud music which they feel... More

We go to this little island often. It's laid back and we meet nice people every time we go there. No bathrooms but some bushes if you need to go.

If you have a boat, this barrier island, especially the South end of Keewaydin Island, is just fantastic to visit. Even though you are in sight of Marco, it feels like a desert island. The white sand is great, you can bring a dog, there are lots of shells to be found, you can picnic and swim and miles of... More

Arrived here by boat from Naples Bay, via The Snook for lunch in Marco Island. Beautiful place to stop, swim and relax. Not sure what it would be like in high season though.

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.
