A boater’s paradise on the south side of Gordon Pass. It abuts the Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, an untouched and pristine coastal wilderness. Keewaydin is a mostly undeveloped shoreline that’s home to an exploding population of invasive iguanas. The island is also the domain of many Naples area boaters and fishermen. Dozens of vessels can be found anchored off the beach whenever weekend weather permits. (from Naplesnews.com)

Perfect for a picnic lunch, shelling, swimming, floating down the beach on the outgoing tide, snorkeling, sand castles or an afternoon nap. Cast a line from the beach for a catch of a lifetime!

Keeywaydin is only reachable by boat

DWP-Sunset-RodWileyOne of the most popular seashore destinations in Naples, this park's mile-long stretch of white sugar sand has been rated as one of the best beaches in the nation. The beach is popular for sunbathing, swimming, beachcombing, snorkeling, and picnicking. Fishing at the beach along Wiggins Pass, where swimming is not allowed, is another popular activity. For saltwater or freshwater fishing, boaters can launch their vessels into Water Turkey Bay and travel to the Gulf or up the Cocohatchee River. Kayakers can enjoy paddling through estuaries; scuba divers can explore the hard bottom reef in the Gulf. At the north end of the island, a tower gives visitors a bird's-eye view of Wiggins Pass and the surrounding coastal habitat.


From the Cocohatchee River you can go north via the back bays up into Estero Bay, East up the Cocohatchee River or, as most visitors do, head west into the Gulf of Mexico through Wiggins Pass

Strategically located on Naples Bay where Goodlette Frank meets 41 in downtown Naples, there is nothing modest about this upscale oasis. Bayfront's colorful European architecture is an eye catching and memorable landmark in Old Naples. Strolling on brick-laden pathways lead to rare finds in the galleries and shops coupled with the impeccable cuisine of the restaurants take the Bayfront experience to a new level. The restaurants' gourmet fare is complimented by an atmosphere ranging from informal to lavish, depending on the diner's mood or taste. The shops are detailed in exquisite woodwork, imported stone, artistic displays and staffed by friendly, knowledgeable representatives to complete the "total" shopping experience.

You can dock in the Bayfront Marina (Docks 31, 32 amd 33)
