Take the free tram to the ocean. They have chair & umbrella for rent. There is a concession and additional water items to rent and good for sale. Good for sea shelling.

We spend time at Lover's Key every time we are in Fort Myers Beach. The Black Island Trail is a nice hike, the kayaking is amazing, and the beach will leave you breathless!
