Lovers Key State Park

Your key to remote romance

Lovers Key is an unspoiled state park so out-of-the-way it lets lovers relish Gulf coast sunsets in the privacy of each other's arms. The park transports guests across the lagoons and mangroves on a tractor-pulled tram to one of two beach access points. With that kind of privacy, no wonder Lovers Key's seclusion draws so many couples and honeymooners. In fact, the park has become such a popular Florida wedding destination that the park has added a gazebo dedicated solely to beachside nuptials.

Even for those not getting hitched, though, the tidal lagoons, edged with mangroves and filled with aquatic creatures, make for great ecotourism in Florida.

Outdoor Focus

Although Lovers Key State Park is off the beaten path, it's still vulnerable. To preserve the fragile ecosystem and educate visitors, Lovers Key provides a wide range of guided tours.

Area Attractions

Wildlife is always a draw. Spring and summer are prime manatee-spotting times. Even if these water mammals pull a no-show, you can always join a park ranger for a shell craft demonstration, beginners birding lesson or bike tour of the Black Island Trail.

Area Events

Nightlife

Fort Myers Beach nightlife is hotter than the sand in summer. Enjoy casino gambling aboard the Big M Casino, a luxurious 162-foot yacht that launches from Fort Myers Beach. The Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce will have up-to-the-minute details.
