A lovely beach with calm waters and quite untouched. I appreciate the lack of crowds. Tram will take you to the beach or you can walk to and from the parking lot.

Very nice beach with a free tram ride. We did see dolphins walking back on the bridge. There was bubbles from a Manatee but we did not see them

Went for shelling. Guessing we got there too late as it was pretty picked over, but near empty beach with shallows and calm waters made for a relaxing day.

We took the trolley to Lover's Key State Park from Times Square. There is a $2 per person entry fee which is reasonable given the pristine condition of the park. Plenty of walking trails but the beach is the greatest draw. Miles of beautiful white sand. The day we visited there were not many people. Very peaceful.

This is a very nice park and they have a shuttle that runs about every 15 minutes. When coming from Fort Meyers you go south and make sure you take the second park entrance on the west side. We took the shuttle out to the beach and we walked back when we were finished. It is not that far of... More
