Lovers Key State Park is a protected coastal area that is as romantic as its name. Visit it to find bottlenose dolphins, marsh rabbits, and manatees that play in the shallow waters and marshes. Watch the skies to see an assortment of bird species, including hawks and warblers. The beach is 3 km (2 mi) of white sand, an area good for swimming. Cross over to Black Island for a kayak rental, or rent a bike to use on the paved trails that crisscross the island.

  • Florida State Park with a beautiful natural beach. There is a trolley available to and from the beach which is much more preferable than the 3/4 mile hike. We were there in mid September during the...

  • Lovers Key State Park is a really neat location with lots to do! We just got our annual park pass and decided to try this one out! They have an awesome shuttle to and from the beach. The beach views and sand are gorgeous! We did one of the walking trails which takes you through some jungle looking wilderness, past the butterfly gardens and next to a bunch of beautiful scenic waterways. I would highly recommend checking it out if you’re in the area and have some time to explore! They have a cute gift shop, rentals, discovery center and much more for the whole family!
  • Beautiful state park with wonderful beaches between Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Springs. There is plenty of parking for an entry fee of 8$ per car, which is very reasonable. We went there several times with our kids during our Florida holidays and it was always an experience. Even the little tram ride from the parking spot to the south beach is great for them. At the beach you have all facilities in place with restrooms, showers and picnic areas, as well as a little food truck. The beach itself is amazing with clear water, white sand and tons of shells. We will definitely come again ...
