This is a beautiful, natural beach just south of Fort Myers Beach and north of Bonita Beach. There is an $8 fee per vehicle or $4 for only one person. The park offers plenty of parking, restrooms, equipment rental, and food. It is open from 8:00 am until sunset everyday. Lovers Key signage

The beach isn't very wide and doesn't have many shells but you have plenty of walking and sitting opportunities on the 2 mile stretch of sand.

It is similar to Bowman's Beach on Sanibel Island as you have a couple of bridges to cross over the intercoastal waters in order to reach the beach. There is a tram available to transport visitors from the parking lot to the beach. Lovers Key looking to the south

If you're interested in collecting shells you would be better off going to Sanibel Island but if you just want to enjoy the surf and sand on a pristine Gulf beach then make your way to Lovers Key.
