Easy access, lots of parking available and right by the Pink Shell Resort. The beach is clean and lovely and provides an excellent 5 mile + walk to other end of the beach... as far as you like to go. There are also plenty of places to picnic with a large family or have an intimate lunch.

Nice walk, nice views and VERY few people abaout, a nice spot to walk or sit for an hour and watch the world pass you and smile/wave.

It was nice. We saw many animals and creatures. Sting rays, heels, bloat fish, dolphins, beautiful shells and wonderful trees to take picture around and under. Not overly exciting but worth a visit especially for the nature lovers :)

This is a sweet little park for a visit - sweeter if you can walk there from a nearby hotel, of which there are many. Parking is limited, and people can be a little confrontational.

The park is quiet pretty but very small, nice view to Sanibel Island etc. We saw several birds but only one turtle. We just walked around a bit, which was done in about half an hour. We liked"our" beach at the southern end of Fort Myers Beach better to hang out, so this park was a bit disapointing for us.
