“shelling and relaxing”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

there will be many boats there so plan to arrive early to claim your spot.
If you plan to stay long on the ocean side, make sure to note the tide schedule for your return to the boat. The boat side is calm with no wake allowed. So, you can enjoy swimming. The ocean side is usually empty allowing for a private island feel. Lots of shells to collect. Bring a snorkel to go out and get some really nice shells.

Our first time here and we had a Fun day .. Weather was awesome. Island had quite a few boats and even a few that had food available. Relax in the water and enjoy the ride in the current. We will return absolutely loved it!!

“Great Day”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

My husband and I visit Marco every November and one of our jaunts is renting a pontoon to visit Keewaydin Island for the day. Shelling is fun, and every visit is different. We go in November so it isn't too crowded and spend the afternoon.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Keewaydin was kind of disappointing. It was SUPER busy and really crowded. We mostly stayed along the ocean near the tip of the island, and our visit was a short one. As I said, tons of people, but some beermonkeys were blasting loud fast latino rap or something, dancing grotesquely, thrusting their hips forward and making the beach a terrible experience. If the party is your scene, then have fun but in a family with young children I recommend South Marco beach. Now we were really only at the tip of the island where it was busiest, but maybe if you go down far enough it might be quieter, I really can't say though. The current was strong near the tip so it wasn't very good for swimming. Sometime I'll go farther down, it seemed like a decent beach away from the party, I really can't say though.
