Please take the time to visit this beautiful park - you won't regret it! It's full of seashells and wild life - unspoiled and beautiful. It's worth a day trip. We enjoyed it by boat - rented a pontoon for the day and visited this...More

Breathtaking views, family friendly environment and an amazing experiences for everyone. Stopped at the beach to walk and see the great views and ended up getting engaged! Plus, was seeing two dolphins jumping and playing right off the shore. Best vacation ever!

What a beautiful beach preserve. We did a kayak tour in the estuary and it was thrilling...a manatee even swam under us an popped our kayak out of water! Take the trolley to Lovers Key for $2!

Great beach! A quick tram ride from the parking lot and your at the beach. It wasn't crowded for a Wednesday during Spring Break which was a surprise. There is an entrance fee but it's reasonable, only $8 for 2-8 people.

I hate that parks in FL charge entry but there is a wonderful observation point right before the pay station at Lover's Key where you can see nature at its finest. Look out on the kayakers and paddle boarders on a mangrove lined waterway. We...More

Found this park not far from our rental home for spring break, and enjoyed the trails and beaches. Nothing fancy, but there was a company doing rental of bikes and kayaks.

The beach was great. A shuttle service takes you to the beach from the parking lot. Don’t be deceived by the signs advertising food sold at the beach shack though. They were out of most food when we were there and it’s not great quality...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.
