“Cayo Costa” untouched island in the Gulf of Mexico
“Cayo Costa” – statepark and untouched dream island. Ever wonder, what it would be like to swash in emerald green waters or enjoy miles of white, unspoiled beach of a deserted island? If so, set course to “Cayo Costa”, located just 12 miles west of “Cape Coral” in the “Gulf of Mexico”, Florida. The island can only be accessed by a small ferry or private water craft. Guests of Villa “Bel Air” will go with “Lady B”, the “Bel Air” boat and have a lot of fun, also enjoying the ride to the island!
The island is kept, as the first european discoverer found it 500 years ago: No roads, no powerlines or shopping centers.
The normal park hours are from 8 a.m. to sundown year round. If you want to stay beyond, watching the sun sink into the Gulf of Mexico, you can arrange to stay for the night on this lovesome island. There are six rustic cabins, which can be booked by visitors. Remember to bring everything you will need, because the only thing provided is drinking water. But for one night, it is really worth to stay and a wonderful experience.
