Fun in the Sun

Our location is perfect for Birding, Shelling, Beachcombing and Nature Watching

Our beach is one of the nicest in Southwest Florida.  You can walk for miles.  If you want to walk on Lovers Key, it is a short trek over the drawbridge to the State Park.

Often we watch pods of dolphins feeding right by the beach. Within a very short drive are numerous wildlife preserves.  Manatees, alligators and unusual birds can be found.

Our beach hosts the largest nesting endangered Snowy Plover population in Florida.  To find out more about the Plovers click here.
