Living in South West Florida I have a few favorite beaches. I try to avoid Fort Myers Beach, especially this time of year, way too many tourist. Two of my favorites are Lover's Key State park, Locate on the south end of Fort Myers Beach by Bonbita Springs, and Siesta Key in Sarasota County about 1 hour north of mere.
Thereare times in the "off "season one can visit Lover's Key and feel like Tom Hanks in cast away; not a soul on the beach in some areas.
I like the contrast and the drama of B/W photos on the beach and hope you enjoy these.
