Paradise is located in a deserted island surrounded with rare shells and white sands. If you love collecting sea shells, one of the places to do this is Keewaydin Island. The 8-mile island is covered in unique and rare shells where you can enjoy beachcombing. 

The island is located between Naples and Marco Island with white sand beach and unbeatable views. The island is unpopulated and there are few private homes around the island. Florida shells are unique but often picked over at the local beaches, so this hidden island provides the perfect shell hunt adventure.

From Wentletrap shells to majestic flower-shaped shells, this island has one-of-a-kind shells for your next DIY project. The island beach is only accessible by boat. You can depart from the Hemingway Water Shuttle seven times daily.

The beach is not rocky but it offers one of the most tranquil environments to relax. According to a Trip Advisor review, "This is a great remote island to grab a chair and a cooler and just enjoy the day. The shelling is fabulous, the farther you walk the better the picking. Sand is fine, and Iā€™d say always a nice breeze on a nice day."

There is also a burger boat where you can purchase cheesburgers when you get hungry, and an ice cream boat with the cutest backdrop for pictures. 

Keewaydin Island is an escape to paradise without having to buy an airplane ticket. All you need is a boat ride and a bucket for your unusual sea treasures.
