This island is very quaint. Not a lot to do but relax and enjoy the quiet. We loved this about it because sometimes tourism can be overwhelming.

Had been to the other two more populated islands so wanted to get to this one. NOTHING to do here. There is a small pool type area (more like a large grotto) next to JF Walleye restaurant, well kept and lots of people using it....More

A fairly quiet island compared to most tourist islands, but with enough attractions on the island or nearby to please all ages. My wife calls it the "island of happy men", and all the women I've met there are also happy.

Fine place for a very short visit. Beaches decent, and it appears that there are numerous rental possibilities for short or longer term breaks. However, there is very little to do other than ride bikes and golf carts around. There is no down town to...More

The best part of the trip was the ferry ride over (and back). At first I thought I would really like the island because it wasn't as crowded as South Bass or Kelly's but there was a reason. We rented a golf cart and had...More
