Pine Island is old Florida. No high-rises or stop lights here, but lots of things to see and do. While Pine Island offers passive enjoyment and relaxation, it is also a great place for interactivity and exploration.
Enjoy kayaking in the sheltered waters of Matlacha pass in the Pine island Sound Aquatic Preserve, Tarpon Bay in the Ding Darling Preserve, or kayak by the full moon or hit Matlacha at sunset. Since all the guides at Gulf Coast Kayak Company (239-283-1125) are naturalists and kayak instructors, it is the perfect experience for nature-lovers and paddlers.
Camp out at several island facilities or head for the Cayo Costa Island State Park (accessible only by boat). No crowds here and the shelling can be fabulous.
Have a 'Cheeseburger in Paradise' on Cabbage key which inspired the song. Every square inch of the interior is papered with $1 bills and more than $10,000 which fall off every year is donated to charity.
Dig a lost civilization: Join archeologists from the University of Florida (Go Gators!) Museum of Natural History as they excavate or do a Saturday tour of the Randall Research Center (239 283 2062), Pineland and its Calusa Indians settlement, mound and canal system.
Mango Mania: Pine Island is home to the Mango Mania Tropical Fruit Festival every July. The island also commercially grows guavas, longans, lychees, sapodillas, jak fruit and a variety of other rare fruits you can pick up at local fruit stands.
Tour Matlacha: Try the 'fishingest bridge in the world'. Tour the arts and crafts shops and catch local artists at work. This tiny Technicolor village is reminiscent of Key West in the 50's. Fresh seafood right off the boat. Several excellent restaurants.
Great fishing everywhere! Hire a guide for a few days to learn local hotspots, baits and lures, then take off on your own. One of our favorite spots is the Redfish Pass area north of Captiva Island. To the north is Cayo Costa, accessible only by boat with un-crowded white sand beaches, camping ,shelling ,treking and surf fishing.
Some of the best fishing in the world for Trout, Snook, Redfish, Snapper, Cobia, Tarpon, King Mackerel and Grouper. Less than 1/2 hour by water to the Boca Grande Tarpon Tournament.
If you like lure fishing, all the old bass fishing standbys work great. It is always a good idea to drop by a tackle shop and check out the latest hot lure. Shrimp is always good too. They don't have to be live but keep them fresh.

Queen Bed. We also have a pullout bed in the living room.
