It is relatively popular and is a favorite winter travel destination to notable artist/painter Bob Timberlake, among others.There are a select few businesses located on the island. Knotts Island Market is the only general store on the island and is a daily destination for numerous residents and travelers. There is a restaurant and bar, Bay Villa.
