So this island is great to go to for the day. One side of the island is where you park your boat (only accessible by boat) and the other side has the most amazing private beach you've ever seen! Joe Biden has a house on this island so when he is there the secret service does not want you to... More

I love Keewaydin, but don't understand why it is listed on Trip Advisor as a Marco Island attraction! If anything I'd say it's closer to Isles of Capri. Worth the boat trip on a Sunday for a day of fun and meeting people. Better shelling at Sand Dollar Spit on Tigertail Beach on the island!

We were looking for peace and quiet... But not the day we went. It was like Spring Break time. We hired kawaydee express to take us out to the island. (They are great! Very reasonable too... http://www.keewaydinexpress.com). We went on Sunday 12/28. Loud music was played. Everyone had the same idea of visiting the island that day. Other than that,... More

This is an awesome area! We boat from Marco Island to Keewaydin. Many boaters pull up on the sand and just hang! We fish, catch the rays and just love walking to the back side. Totally feel GOD's gift of nature!

About a half hour boat ride from Rose Marina is Keewaydin Island. A 7 mile long island accessible only by boat at marker 33. You anchor the boat on the sandy shore and walk across a short marked path to the beach on the gulf side. The beach is gorgeous with lots of sand, shells, warm water and privacy. We... More

We spent 7 full days on Marco island and must have snuck out by boat to this place at least 5 out of the 7 days! It's perfection.

The only way to get to Keewaydin Island is by boat. It is a very popular spot for locals and tourists alike. Pack a cooler, take some food and make a day of it. There are many friendly people and it's a great beach! Be kind and make sure you do your part to clean up after your visit please.

If you are going be anywhere near Marco island or Naples this is a must see. Rent a boat for the day from almost any place on the north side of Marco. The Gps on the boat will get you to the island. The incredible blue water, sandy beach, sea shells and dolphins will keep you amazed all day. If... More

We took the dolphin explorer to the island for some shelling. The water is crystal clear, the sand soft and white and absolutely NO development or high rises. No partners were here on this November Saturday - just lots of shells, sand, water and birds. Our family (3 young kids, 2 adults, and 3 seniors) had a great visit. The... More
