Lover’s key is a well-maintained beach preserve between Fort Myers Beach and Naples. For $8 a car, you can drive into the South Gate parking area, where you rent kayak, canoe, bikes and buy some gift and snacks. You can walk and follow the broad walk directly to the beach or take the tram. The tram will drop you off... More

We rented a canoe for a half day excursion in the estuary. The lady at the canoe rental place (at the gift shop and shuttle stop area) was very knowledgeable about when and where to see the manatees. We saw several manatees, but we did have to work for it. Also so a large collection of different birds as well... More

Maybe because it's a state park, things were relatively inexpensive. We bought great floaties and sand toys at the shop, took the ride to the beach, and then rented some chairs and an umbrella. Really great day!

Our Daughter, Son in law, and Grandson were visiting during the holidays and we went to Lovers Key Beach for the day. We all enjoyed our day. The shuttle from the parking lot to the beach was great as our a son in law has trouble walking distances.

We have been visiting this beach for over 10 years, it is always a great time. Each visit we see something different. The best beach to visit with family!

We first walked the Black Island Trail and then took the tram out to the beach. It was a cool day for Florida which made for a great day to walk. The Black Island Trail was easily negotiated. It is my opinion that a powered or pushed wheelchair could easily travel the trail. The downside was that they was little... More

Spent Thanksgiving Day on this beautiful beach, words cannot describe the beauty. There is a tram that can drive you back to the beach or it is just a short walk from the parking lot.

We had a wonderful day as a family on the beach and loved that it was not overly crowded so we had space to ourselves to let the kids play and we could also rest. Beautiful beach and surrounding area. The kids loved the massive amounts of birds all over the beach to chase as well.... unless you don't prefer... More

Very pretty park. The hiking was nice and quiet. The gopher turtles are so very cool! Make sure to look on the holes in the sand for them. While for the most part the hike was well-marked watch out for the end of the hike - the signs were confusing.
