Converting a point shp to a line shp while keeping the attributes

I have a point shapefile with points at a 1km distance from each other along the English southern coastline. 

I want to convert this shapefile into a line shapefile, and to keep the attributes from the original shp. Is this possible?

Please find attached, there are some islands as well, that should be separate features, so if there is a way to define that only points within 1km distance should be connected.

Points To Line—Data Management toolbox | Documentation

Then a join of the point data back to the line might work IF! you have the appropriate license
