Fort Myers Beach is home to Lover’s Key State Park, Dog Beach, and the iconic Fort Myers Beach Pier. Watch dolphins and sunsets along the pier, enjoy the many fresh seafood restaurants, or just stretch out along the Gulf Coast.
Just south of Fort Myers, the beach town of Bonita Springs features the sandy shores of Bonita Beach Park, Little Hickory Island Beach Park, and Barefoot Beach Preserve Park. Beach-goers are encouraged to try kayaking, windsurfing, and just plain lounging along the stunning shores of Bonita Springs.
Venice, a small town near Sarasota, is a historic community yielding some of the most picturesque beaches in Florida. Stroll along Caspersen Beach, bring the family-dog to Paw Park and South Brohard Beach, or grab your rod and reel and head to the famed Venice Fishing Pier. Known as the Shark's Tooth Capital of the World, Venice also features the unique activity of tooth hunting, and hosts the annual Shark's Tooth Festival in April.
Find surfing, shelling, and sunbathing in Naples – framed by the Gulf of Mexico and Picayune Strand State Forest.
