Includes: Beach Hike, Interior Trails. Miles of beaches, mangroves swamps with a spectacular display of bird life and acres of woodlands form this remarkable barrier island that is completely cut off from land. Cayo Costa, which means “key by the coast,” is one of a string of offshore landfalls that shelter Pine Island Sound and Charlotte Harbor. Considering what has happened to the other nearby barrier islands of Sanibel and Captiva, it is remarkable that Cayo Costa still remains relatively unspoiled. Special Attractions: Fishing, shelling, picnicking, bicycling (rentals available), swimming and camping.
