Second time we visited. The main parking lot ($8) was full at noon when we arrived, so we thought the beach might be crowded. There's a free tram that can deliver you right to the southern part of the beach, but we walked straight ahead...More

This was a very cool park. It was well manicured and the beach was great. The water was much clearer than our hotel beach only a few miles north. The tram ride to the beach was our kids favorite part.

Beautiful beach with shells galore. The beach is serviced by a tram so if you don't want a long walk from the parking lot lugging all of your beach paraphernalia, you can take the shuttle. Unfortunately the shuttle doesn't run very late, so if you...More

Lovers Key is such a wonderful beach. Take the tram and learn so much from the tram drivers about the area.

We enjoyed the seclusion and quiet this place offered. We only saw about 10 other people the entire time.

The beach was beautiful. They have a tram, but we had a cooler, chairs and a wagon so we decided to just pull our stuff. It was a bit far, just cause of the heat. Doable, but not as easy as Ft Myers beach. I'd...More

On our recent trip to Florida, we spent most of our time exploring the Southwest Gulf Coast beaches. Lover's Key is nestled between Estero Island/Ft Myers Beach and Big Hickory Island and Bonita Beach. This stretch of beach has a distinctly remote feel of being...More

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.
