Lovers Key is an ecological paradise. There is something special for everyone who enjoys the great outdoors, beach style. The beach itself is clean and pristine, with miles of shelling possibilities. One has the opportunity to fish, swim, or kayak in the clean gulf waters. The shaded hiking trails provide hours of enjoyable and peaceful exercize and offer an education about local plant life for all. It is uncommon to find osprey hawks and bald eages anywhere, but they can be found, to my amazement, here at Lovers Key. The park facilities are clean and pleasant and the employees both helpful and friendly.
