No street lights, no buildings higher than three storeys (the height of the area’s tallest palm trees), 24 km of beaches, 40 km of bike paths and plenty of wildlife – but not of the crazy nightlife genre – all make for a perfect family getaway along Southwest Florida’s Gulf Coast, writes assistant editor, Greg Coates in this week’s digital edition of Travel Courier.
Specifically, we’re talking about Lee County’s The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel (located between Naples and Sarasota), offering unspoiled natural beauty – there are no theme parks here – and ranked as one of the top places in the US for shelling and home to 100-plus barrier and coastal islands.
The area is served by Fort Myers’ Southwest Florida International Airport, and includes direct services from Canada.
The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel, which also includes Captiva, is widely recognized and consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top destinations for beach combing, shelling, kayaking and bird watching.
