This is a Southwest Florida jewel. Only 45 minutes from the Ft. Myers airport, it is a terrific little island with a laid back atmosphere and great things to do. A crystal white 3-miles beach provides great sun worshipping time and the unlimited exposure to the 1000 islands provides great fishing, jet skiing and boating opportunites. A great place to visit and live!
