Nice spot to walk along the water and enjoy the views. Parking is free, and there are a few picnic tables on either side of the boat ramp, with plenty of biting ants! The water is clear and you can often spot fish under the floating dock, and jelly fish floating by as well.

Nice little store for souvenirs. Calm quite place to hang out for a while. They sell live bait and have lots of parking for vehicles with boat trailers. You can see across the bay area to some mangrove islands. Watch for dolphins and maybe even some tarpon.

Nice small little park with picnic and fishing opportunities. Also a boat ramp with great access. Great place to kick back and relax watching boats come and go.

We enjoyed eating there so much that we ate there a second time. We enjoyed eating a fish and a shrimp meal with a nice salad bar and nice selection of breads to go with it.We liked eating outside and actually saw some dolphins in the canal or marina while we were eating.

We enjoy walking along the pier - several pelicans have seemed to make it their home and we regularly see dolphin in the nearby waters. It is small, but there are some nice picnic tables and benches so you could sit for a whil.e

Cute little park with ample parking if you are looking to fish or just have a quick picnic and take a few photos. Lots of birds and wildlife in area that often visit park so a great spot for watching wildlife and the boats coming and going. Picnic tables, public boat ramp, and bait shop available.

This is the only public boat ramp that we found in Marco Island. The charge is $8/per vessel with engine, therefore our two jet skis cost $16/day. Plenty of parking and the gentlemen working were informative and showed us a map of the area and gave us information on traveling out to keewaydin island.
