Best shelling and beach!

Best shelling...nearly private beach since it is only accessible by boat. Take a shuttle there and get dropped off / picked up...you will love it.

This pristine island is a must-see! The water is gorgeous, and the beach is fabulous. My family enjoyed relaxing, swimming, and shell-hunting.

We took the Hemingway Shuttle for our first visit to this magical spot. It was good to be there on a quieter weekday. I imagine it gets pretty packed on the weekend. Had a great visit. Fish tacos and cold beer on the beach after a dip in the Gulf. WOW

So much fun to pull up to shore and hang out with others. Brought a frisbee and some friends. Dolphins swam right next to our boat.

This is the place to go if you have access to a boat. The beach is great for hanging out in the water. You can bring food or just wait for the numerous boats that come from local restaurants and line up like food trucks along the shore selling all sorts of stuff to eat. This is definitely our favorite... More

We cruised from Naples bayfront. Beautiful ride with dolphins, but need to beware of big boats coming up from behind that have huge wakes. Walk across Keewaydin to gulf side for a great picnic.

This is the place to boat or jet ski over to when the weather is good. Dogs, kids, picnickers, food barges, just lots of fun for all. Warning, be careful when landing or launching as people like to wade or float in the shallow water off shore. Remember your sun screen

We rented a pontoon and went out to Keewaydin for the day. It was not very busy, was a beautiful day, we saw several dolphins. It was a great way to spend a day in January.

A great place to spend the day. You Can only get to by boat. Food boats are available for food and beverages. People watching is awesome here!

Fun place to beach a boat & take a break. Take a short walk across the island to walk along the gulf. On weekends can be very busy. Several food boats hang out to provide options for a picnic etc. It's a unique destination from the Naples or Marco Island areas. Party island!
