Very nice, clean beach that was relatively uncrowded. Took a nice stroll down the beach and back. Hit the Ice cream shop for a snack. There is a charge to get in, and you have to take a tram to the actual beach, but it...More

A lot of walking around to nowhere and nothing. A waste of time and admission. Would not recommend or visit again.

We walked the nature trails on our first visit. They are very secluded and offered a chance to see many varieties of birds. We did see a nesting bald eagle. On the second visit we went to the beach. Don't know how long the beach...More

Spent the day at Lovers Key State Park. Beautiful well maintained beach, kayaks, beach chairs for rent. Nature tours also available. A perfect place to spend the day in the sun,on the beach,and away from the crowds.

We enjoyed the options for bike and kayak rentals. Although the staff is running crazy busy they were very attentive. The park is in great condition for being such a busy place. Thanks Rangers!! It is definitely worth the $8 per car admission

Wasn't really much to see here. The white sand beach is beautiful, but certainly not unique to the area. The hiking trail was pretty boring. They do have some nice picnic areas if you are looking for a spot for a large group picnic. This...More
