Bonita Springs


Bonita Springs & Estero back to Area Info

South of Fort Myers, Bonita Springs & Estero hold both natural and historic treasures. Exploration of this area reveals Florida as it once was. The remote island beaches here are considered some of the most beautiful in the area.

The white sands and blue waters of Bonita Beach and, the unspoiled Lover's Key State Park to the north, offer a chance to escape and relax to the sound of surf gently rolling in from the Gulf.

Inland water adventures can be just as relaxing. Treat yourself to the serenity of a canoe trip down the Imperial River, the starting point of the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail. Tour the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary, a place of quiet solace where walkers wind through pinelands, wet prairies and cypress grounds on an elevated boardwalk.

Golfers will love the lush green courses carved from nature, including one of the best public courses in the country. Also, some of the area's trendiest new shops and bistros are located in this charming small town setting at the Promenade. There's a bit of Old and New Florida awaiting you in Bonita Springs and Estero.

Beach, dock and boat fishing follow miles of ambling waterways. Marinas offering boat rentals and fishing charters. In addition, the Naples/Fort Myers Greyhound Track and the 19th-century remains of the utopian Koreshan community, a state historical site attracts visitors year-round.
