great view of the harbour estuary and you may even see the tortoises that live in this park. If you like fishing you can fish off the beach here.

Good parking, picnic shelters, well-maintained restrooms. Soft and fine white sand and great views of the boats coming out to the gulf. The snack bar has limited hours. The natural environment around the point is most enjoyable. The bonus is Dolphins are seen regularly.

Short walk from the parking lot or shuttle if you take that over. Lots of picnic tables so bring a lunch and spend the day.

This area has a beautiful view and you can see Sanibel from here!! There was a wedding while we were here and we had hired a photographer to take family pictures. They chose here for a setting and it was beautiful.

I was a little disappointed that this park wasnt larger. I was hoping to spot a gopher turtle but I believe it was too hot to be above the ground. It is a beautiful little parklet.
