Lover’s Key State Park was ranked as the fourth most popular destination in the Florida State Park system. Lover’s Key is a group of islands in the Gulf of Mexico between Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach. Motorboats are not permitted within the park, but kayaking and canoeing are popular. The two mile long beach is accessible by boardwalk or tram and is popular for shelling, swimming, picnicking, and sunbathing. It has picnic areas, canoe rentals, restrooms, rinse-off showers and a snack bar. The bay side has a boat ramp, volleyball areas and more picnic areas.


The Finer Side of Island Life

Naples FL


In this Southwest Florida beach town, elements of big city life mix with miles of beautiful coastline to create a rich, tropical air. Here, it's just as natural to go strolling through high-end boutiques and art galleries in Naples' fashionable downtown as it is to go barefoot, collecting seashells on a pristine island.


Sanibel Island

Sanibel Island FL


Located on the Gulf Coast of Florida near Fort Myers, Sanibel Island is world renowned for its shelling beaches. Almost a third of the island is covered by the J. N. Darling National Wildlife Refuge, with excellent bird watching opportunities. The city of Sanibel enjoys a laidback lifestyle and is determined to keep it. There are no stoplights on the island, and no new buildings are allowed that are higher than the tallest palm trees.
