Took a private charter to Keewaydin. Really beautiful beach that's a little different from the other Marco beaches. Great food boats to get lunch and lots of excellent shelling. Highly recommend !

This place was great for a day trip away for a different view. Saw dolphins as well, one got quite close! Shelling was great. Water shoes would be a good idea as some shells were quite sharp, and there are burrs on the island. Definitely...More

It is a great place to shell or just hang out on the beach. There are usually food vendors there for treats or snacks too.

The island is free to the public. You need to go by boat to get there. We rented a boat for 4 hours and it was about $250. Rates may be down now that the high season is over.

Yes we took our chairs and umbrella but we also rented a couple of chairs from Hemingway water shuttle too. They have the option for rental on their reservation page.
