Keewaydin Beach and Shuttle


All Windstar on Naples Bay residents may enjoy a range of beach, nature and boating experiences without packing up the car and braving the highway system. During the season, residents can take a 30-minute journey on the Keewaydin Queen boat shuttle through the Rookery Bay Reserve to our private dock on Keewaydin Island. Rookery Bay Reserve is one of the few remaining undisturbed mangrove estuaries in North America. Common sights include schools of dolphins playfully swimming boat-side, Ospreys diving for food to feed themselves or their young, manatees navigating the waterways or the soaring flight of a bald eagle.

or call 239-774-6392

       

Upon arriving at the inland waterway side of Keewaydin Island, pull carts are at the dock to carry personal belongings to the screened picnic pavilion where Adirondack chairs and umbrella shades are available for use on the Gulf beach where miles of beautiful ‘Robinson Crusoe’ - like beachfront extend to the north and south. Shelling, swimming, sunbathing, sand-castling, and of course beachcombing make each return visit a unique and special Windstar on Naples Bay experience. The trip to the island takes approximately 40 minutes.
