Barrier Island Beach between Naples and Marco Island, Marco Island, FL 34145

Keewaydin Island is a barrier island located between Naples and Marco Island with nearly eight miles of deserted, white sand beach. Eighty percent of the island is undeveloped, the rest is populated with private homes. This island beach is only accessible by boat, and it is the only pet-friendly beach in the Naples/Marco Island area. 


The Hemingway Water Shuttle departs seven times daily for drop off and pick up trips to the beach at Keewaydin. Book your passage online and enjoy the ride! The shuttle is pet-friendly - leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome to ride!


Boat rentals are available from conveniently located marinas in Naples and Marco Island. Also, several regular sightseeing boat trips feature stops at the island for beach walking and shelling. These include trips on the Sweet Liberty and Dolphin Explorer boats and others operated by Pure Florida.
