This beach is at the end of the road and away from most of the bustle of Fort Myers beach. The parking lot is small, so if you plan on going, you better get there by 9:30 a..m. There is a parking fee. There 's a picnic areak nice bathrooms and a food stand. Don't count on breakfast there. Sometimes the staff doesn't show up. When they do, they make a nice breakfast; fresh eggs and bacon is a good quality. I'm a bacon snob. There is a short walk lined with palms and then it opens up to a beautifully restored sand beach. Nice shower at the end to rinse off. There are lots of seabirds to the right and you really feel like you're getting away from it all. You can walk to the restaurants if you're not opposed to a good stroll and have breakfast, then walk back to your own little piece of heaven. We love this beach. Often there is a good selection of seashells.

Fantastic facilities and a beautifully restored beach front of white sand. Far enough from the downtown cluster of tourist stores, it's quiet and offers a little more space.

We stumbled upon this park quite by accident. Once you walk through the green part of the park you come out on this gorgeous white sand beach. It's right at the point of Fort Myers Beach and a wonderful place to watch all the boats come and go from the harbour.

Lots of Tortoises trundling around.

Parking is usually a bit better than most of the beaches, It is a bit out of the way. Hence, it is not as crowded,
