Disappearing Island makes stress disappear
Jan. 2020 • Family
We went on a family trip to Disappearing Island and were not disappointed. The lighthouse in the background was beautiful. This is a great place to relax and enjoy with the family. Loved our time away...

A Pleasnt Boat Stop
May 2019 • Couples
When we have company, we usually take our boat out for a ride on the intracoastal. We usually head on down to Disappearing Island, which is near the base of the Ponce Inlet breakwater and across from the Ponce Inlet Coast Guard Station.

If you decide to stop, beware of the shallow water when approaching from the south. It's easy to beach here and go for a walk. You can usually find a lot of small shell-life on the shore line.

Some of my friends with boats, fly their kites on the island. It's also a nice place to partake of a picnic lunch. This is a popular island, and you can be certain you will have others there also enjoying the island.

The water appeared to me to be worth while fishing, but I personally caught nothing using lures.

Disappearing island is a natural phenomenon. Here one minute and gone the next at the whim of the tide. But while it's above water line its a great place to meet people and make friends.

We call it Dirtbag Island

There are better sandbar islands that are not all about loud music, misbehaving adults, trash and crowds of people who don't know how to boat.

This is a sandbar at the mouth of the inter-coastal. As you look across the water out to the ocean the lighthouse is on the north side and the Coast Guard Station is on the south side. It is a barren pile of sand that somehow attracts small watercraft to the shores at each tide. Grab a cooler and a chair and be a minimalist for the stay.

Accessible by boat.

Favorite spot for boaters to beach their boats, picnic, swim, etc., but mainly at low tide. The island is mainly fine sand making the docking of boats easy.

IT WAS THERE AND SUDDENLY . .. . . . . IT DISAPPEARED!!!!!
Oct. 2017 • Solo
Every time I go to visit this island it isn't there!!! One minute it is there and suddenly "poof!" it's gone! I have spoken to people who claim to have visited this island, and would mention them here but . .. . . . . THEY'RE GONE TOO! If you can ever get there don't expect 'Welcome Centers'. 'Shopping Malls', Restaurants or Sports Bars. In fact, don't expect much of anything! "Disappearing Island". However did they come up with this name!?!
