We came here with a wedding party the day before the wedding. Absolutely gorgeous. Costs $8 to park and then a free team takes you to the beach. Not very crowded and the beach is so beautiful. Can’t wait to come here again.

We enjoyed this beach. It is clean and not nearly as crowded as the beaches on Sanibel Island and Ft Meyers beach. It is a relaxing beach, easy to walk and a lot easier to get to. I recommend it.

never been to Naples beach. Lovers Key has a feeling of uncrowdeness. There is a free tram that takes you there from the parking lot. And no tolls to pay.
