This beach is just past the bridge to Captiva. Parking is limited (fee is $5/hour), so arrive early. **Lee County Annual Parking Stickers are accepted at this location. This is a great place for sunsets and romantics. This area has great fishing from the beach and the rock jetty and for shelling. Swimmers should stay away from the bridge area. The water gets deep quickly and there can be a strong undertow. So stay away from the strong currents and move farther down the beach. The sand quality is good. There are bars and restaurants just back across the bridge.
Amenities: Captiva Island, Gulf beach, toilets, fishing, canoe/kayak launch.
