Accessible only by private boat or ferry Cayo Costa State Park is one of southwest Florida's best kept secrets. Emerald waters line the nine miles of white sand creating some of the most beautiful unspoiled beaches in the world.

Visitors may see manatees and dolphin pods in the waters surrounding the 2,426 acre park. Stroll along the beach, picnic in the shade, swim and snorkel in the surf, hike and bicycle along the trails... there is plenty do to on Cayo Costa. There is also an amphitheater where you can learn all about the island's ecology and history. If you'd like to stay overnight there are cabins and tents available to rent.
