This is the second installment of “Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach: A Renter’s Guide To the Islands”, which can be downloaded for FREE from our eBook library.

Estero Island is one of the treasures of Southwest Florida. It is an island located in Lee County, on the Gulf Coast that is bordered by San Carlos Island to the north and Big Carlos Pass to the south.

The Matanzas Pass Bridge, on the northern end of the island, connects Estero Island to San Carlos Island. The Big Carlos Bridge (part of the Bonita Beach Causeway) connects the southern end of Estero Island to Black Island, which is located at the northern limit of the city of Bonita Springs.

Estero Island provides beautiful beaches along the coast, along with popular areas for boating, kayaking, canoeing and enjoying wildlife refuges.

At the southern tip, a bridge leads to Lovers Key State Park, with serene beaches and over five miles of hiking and biking trails among an abundance of wildlife.

Dolphins are frequently spotted in Estero Bay, part of the Intracoastal Waterway surrounding Estero Island. Here, you will also find an abundance of marinas and launch points for boating adventures.

You can choose to spend the day on your own boat, or enjoy sunset cruises, sightseeing cruises, and deep-sea fishing charters, which all leave from the island.

Estero Island is also home to the famous “Times Square” and fishing pier on Fort Myers Beach. This area provides an array of shopping, dining, and entertainment for the whole family.Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach A Renters Guide to the Islands 231x300 #2 Explore Estero Island
