Cayo Costa State Park

Cayo Costa State Park Professional Review and Guide

"This subtropical barrier island lies in the Gulf of Mexico, just off the west coast of south Florida. Its 9 miles of beach are sparkling white and it is never thronged with crowds, even on holidays—almost certainly because you can only reach the island by boat. Campers can fish, swim, or snorkel, with excellent chances of seeing manatees and pods of dolphins.

These southwest Florida beaches are also known for the best shelling in the state, especially during the winter. Several nature trails allow hiking and even off-road cycling for those adventuresome enough to venture on the ferry with their bicycle. An amphitheater allows park rangers to present educational programs about the island’s ecology and history.
