Bonita Beach attractions

Bonita Beach in Florida is one of the top attractions for backpackers. Nestled at the North of Naples, this beach is an unspoiled zone lined with beautiful dwellings, quaint cottages, and miles of immaculate ambling zone. Regarded as ‘The Gateway of the Gulf’, the area of Bonita Beach is just ideal for pleasant walks via which you can explore the legendary homes, cypress trees, and beachfront restaurants. It enjoys subtropical climate due to which it is called ‘The Paradise Coast’.

Among all the great attractions here, the Lover’s Key State Park is so enchanting with its barrier islands, nestled to the north of Bonita Beach. This is where you will enjoy trails for bicycling as well as hiking; a canoe launch, miles of unspoiled mangroves, kayak and canoe rentals, and stretches of clean beaches. It is also a wildlife paradise where the islands house West Indian Manatees, roseate spoonbills, bald eagles, bottlenose dolphins, and marsh rabbits.

Next, never make the mistake of missing The Everglades Wonder Gardens that offers a huge collection of local wildlife such as panthers, exotic birds, bears, alligators, and flamingos. It is a wildlife exhibit as well as an oasis for injured animals. Also, check out for the natural history museum as well as a botanical garden. One more wild delight! One more park that is famous is the Bonita Beach Park, a beachfront green retreat offering a swimming area as well as boardwalk. Shimmering dunes of sand with the beachside vegetation flank the 8 picnic spots and gazebo.

Naples Zoo at the Caribbean Gardens is not only a zoo, but is also a historic garden entertaining the guests via educating them about the wild. There are a plethora of amazing exhibits showing the wild creatures in their natural habitat. Watch out for the tigers relaxing in waters, panther growling, African Oasis full of diverse African wildlife such as gazelles and kudus, and the Backyard Habitat of wild butterflies and more. Opened from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm daily, it allows entry for $15.95 per adult and $9.95 per child (3-12).

Edison and Ford Winter Estates is the worth visiting address of 9 National Register Historic edifices as well as Botanical and Research Gardens. Further, there is a museum wherein you can explore the brainchild of these two brilliant minds by going through their discoveries, objects, and special exhibits. I recommend for a guided tour here. This is also the venue of events like the Holiday House, Thomas Edison’s Birthday, Festival of Lights, Antique Car Show, and Director’s Sunday Strolls.

Do take an opportunity to rejuvenate at the Stillwater Spa – the focal attraction at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort. Experience the several treatment therapies that are tailored as per your needs here. Playing golf is great here. Choose any of the public or private golf courses as per your skill level. An array of stunning golf courses is the pride of Southwest Florida of which many were made by the popular architects. After all, PGA Tour players come here to play and enhance their skills.

For shopping, the Flamingo Island Flea Market is one of the popular spots offering arts and crafts, purses, antiques, golf balls, toys, watches, jewelry, household items, T-shirts, shoes, and furniture. Even more fascinating are the Miromar Outlets featuring musical waters, family lounges, play area for kids, and interactive water fountains. Here, you can easily get jewelry, footwear, accessories, luggage, designer as well as brand items, and handbags. One more worth exploring zone is the Promenade Shopping/Dining Center full of boutiques, galleries, and restaurants along with Mediterranean structures and cascading waterfalls.
