Keewaydin is a beautiful island. During the busy season if you want privacy and peace and quiet this is not the place but if you don't mind the crowds, music, food boats and everyone just having fun this is it. Off season it''s a little busy but you have your space if you want it. Anchor up your boat or... More

Keewaydin was my favorite part of our Marco trip. I loved that we could easily go back and forth between the two sides of the island, both of which have completely different feels. We came by Hemingway Shuttle (see review- Shuttle was just as great as Keewaydin), and we hung out on the busy side first. As others have mentioned,... More

We love to boat over to Keewaydin Island from Marco Island. The shelling is fabulous with 7 miles of beach to walk while enjoying the birds, too.

We rented a boat and visited this island, which we found beautiful and modestly crowded. If you're renting a boat, I recommend it as a stop.

The Gulf's interior access at Hurricane Pass provides a long, pristine and fine sandy shore that consistently attracts numerous boating visitors arriving from Naples to Marco Island. You're sure to meet many interesting and friendly people who jump up to help with beaching or launching your boat. Unlike some beaches in the area, you're sure to see the full range... More

This is a great beach to walk along as you can only get there by boat very few people are on the beach at any given time. Really gives you a chance to relax.

Spectacular place. Very crowded on weekends but we did manage to squeeze out little 20 footer in. Lots of shallow water getting there so be careful if you are not familiar with the area.

We visited the island as a part of our tour with Eco Adventures. This is a pristine beach with lots of shells. We also saw a sawfish trolling the beach about 3 feet away from us. We arrived early in the morning and had most of the beach to ourselves. As we were leaving the beach was starting to get... More

We love Keewaydin Island! We've been going every year for a decade and a half...even after the inlaws sold their boats!!! We pull in fish over the top of the kids swimming and/or building sand castles...

My advise would be if you need a peaceful family outing this is not the place. But if U go, come early, there may not be a place to park. Watch the change of tide though when mooring. There are a few pontoon boats selling snacks and beer.
