COASTE - Summer 2018

Lovers Key State Park Lovers Key State Park is just one of the four barrier islands six miles south of Fort Myers Beach. The dreamy name is an ode to a legend of lovers who secretly escaped to the island by boat before roadways were built in 1965. The park, which is nestled between Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico, is made up of 712 acres and an almost amazing two-mile-stretch of unspoiled beaches. A concession stand on the island allows beachgoers to rent kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, beach chairs and umbrellas. The entrance fee for the park is $8. FRIENDSOFLOVERSKEY.ORG

The beach features a canoe and kayak launch, volleyball nets, jet skiing and parasailing, a playground for the little ones and picnic areas. A bus and trolley service is also available to beach-goers. Parking is $2 per hour. BONITASPRINGSCHAMBER.COM
