High Springs

This is a beautiful state park that is a small island surrounded by other islands filled with hotels and resorts. The park is very nice and has many beaches and walking trails all over. They even have a dog beach. Near by you can stay at a variety of hotels or private vacation options.

This state park includes Lovers Key and three barrier islands, just south of the island. You will see a lot of wildlife here. The park rents bikes, paddle boards, kayaks (guided and non-guided) and canoes. There are biking and hiking trails on this 712 acre site.

Great bike and water trails and you can rent kayaks for bikes. You can take a tram down the the beach which is miles long without any other dwellings.

Voted one of the best beaches, Lover's Key State Park is just a short trolley or car ride away from your condo.

Thank goodness for conservationists or this gem of a spot would already be developed between the multi-million dollar residents to its left (Hickory Blvd and Barefoot Beach Blvd) and its right (South End Fort Myers Beach.)

Lover's Key has it all! Beautiful beaches, kayaks in the mangroves, Bald eagles, Osprey, dolphins, Manatees and many many birds! Rent kayaks and discover the mangroves or fish to your hearts content!

712-acre Florida State Park, flanking the northern border of Bonita Springs, just 10 minutes north of our Bonita Springs villa. Great place to spot Roseate Spoonbills and frolicking Bottlenose Dolphins! Manatees too! The kids will love it! Hiking, biking, canoe and kayak rentals and canoe launch. Mix of mangroves and miles of white sand beaches

Sand is super hot in the summer. Average burgers for sale on the beach. The rentals are nice and the beach is clean

Whether you want to hike the trails and beach or bring a chair and relax on the beach, Lovers Key is a must see! You will see birds, dolphins, turtles and manatees in season.

Spend the day walking nature trails and picnicking, there's about 2 miles of beaches to swim or just relax and hang out.

Petrified (or just dead) trees along part of the beach. Very neat to see and fun to photograph.
