Lovers Key State Park is located in Southwest Florida in between Bonita Beach and Ft. Myers Beach. It is made up of four barrier islands and for years was only accessible by boat. Only lovers traveled to the remote beach - hence, the name Lovers Key.
We rented a pontoon boat at Bonita Beach and traveled to the state park by water, beaching the boat on the sand to take a walk and play in the beautiful aqua colored water. The beach is full of driftwood and has an "otherwordly" look to it.
On the way there and back, we saw dolphins, manatees, a whole bunch of jet skis, million dollar condos and houses and even a bald eagle. Enjoy the beauty of the Gulf Coast of Florida!
