Lovers Key Aerial-1Lover’s Key is a small group of mangrove islands located between Ft. Myers Beach and Bonita Beach, including two miles of undisturbed beaches on the Gulf of Mexico. The islands are collectively known as Lover’s Key State Park (formerly Carl E. Johnson Park). Inland backwaters full of fish, birds, and marine life, separate the islands from each other. Boats with motors are not allowed within the Park, but motorboats are allowed in the Gulf and Bay waters surrounding the Park, and there is a boat ramp within the park. This is to protect the abundant wildlife, which includes manatees, dolphins, various herons and roseate spoonbills, ospreys, bald eagles, raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, snook, mullet, rays, and a large variety of shellfish.

If you’re looking for a relaxed community nestled away from all of the hustle and bustle of tourists, but perfectly located for boating, and water activities, Bonita Shores and Little Hickory Shores are the perfect hideaway. These Collier County communities are bordered on the North and East by Lee County and the City of Bonita Springs and to the West by Little Hickory Bay.Florida Home-201
The neighboring communities are distinguished by water. Homes in Bonita Shores, the larger of the two adjoining neighborhoods, are biking distance to both Barefoot and Bonita Beaches, but there are no canal front lots or direct Gulf access properties. Residents of Bonita Shores do benefit from a deeded boat launch in the community with direct, quick (15 to 20 minutes) Gulf access.

The Park Shore community, with it’s one and a half miles of expansive Gulf beaches, is ideally situated just North of Olde Naples, South of Pelican Bay and West of U.S. 41, and offers home and condominium buyers and endless variety of options and lifestyles.

Sparkling white sand beaches and Gulf Shore Boulevard North frame dozens of high-rise condominiums strategically built in a serpentine design, and seperated by common beach parks, allowing for maximum Gulf and Bay views from every building. Condominium towers facing East have a panoramic view of Venetian Bay and the Mediterranean architecture inspired by Park Shore developer and visionary Raymond Lutgert beginning in 1964. The aptly named Park Shore Drive winds it’s way West from U.S. 41 through the community’s lush, tree lined streets to the intersection of Gulf Shore Boulevard which serves as a frame for Park Shore’s most well known dining and shopping venue-“The Village On Venetian Bay.”
