It's away from the world and a beautiful place to realize that you are in a beautiful world. Go shelling, walk the shore and enjoy the flora and fauna. Nature at finest.

Tram ride to the beach (.5 mile) or you could walk on paved path. Beach with bathrooms & showers close. Large pavilion area with picnic tables. Snack & ice cream available on the beach. We were helped by Jesse at Hurricane Charlie's with a paddle board. He was great! We enjoyed our visit here.

Our friends were married on the beach and it was beautiful. There is also a gazebo looking out on the water in case it rains during the cermony.

This is a great place to be for a nice sunny day. You can canoe or kayak at one end of the park. Our take the tram to the southern end of the beach. If you are in the area I'd highly recommend this park.

The beach here is nice and wide. The ocean was very calm and nearly wave-less. Very nice for just floating around and enjoying the sun. There is an area where you can rent chairs and umbrellas, or you can choose the more natural areas if you like to fish or just enjoy nature. There are several trails around the property,... More

This is the best beach in the area. Yep, you have to pay to get in but it is reasonable and there is lots of parking, decent bathrooms and concessions. Can also rent kayaks too. But really the beach is the best part, very wide, never too busy even at peak holiday times.

This is a fab beach especially for families. There are great facilities with beds and umbrella's to hire and even free wi fi (which was better than our wi fi at home). We spent all day here which we don't normally do had a great day.

There are many things to do at Lovers Key State Park. We took the tram directly to the main beach with my niece's 2 small children and we were able to really enjoy the beach without a lot of walking. There are concessions and bathrooms at the beach and many outdoor showers to clean off the sand before you get... More

We made the rookie mistake of going in the first entrance (coming from Fort Myers) and it was a LONG walk. We should have continued driving to the main entrance. Once there though, we had a great time, rented a paddle boat, enjoyed our day. My daughter even went back the next day and rented kayaks. She said she floated... More
