Cayo Costa: On Florida Island Time

    By Larry Elliston

    With great fishing, oak-palm hammocks, mangrove swamps and miles of beautiful beaches, Cayo Costa is a relaxed island destination that moves at its own pace. The barrier island, seven miles long and one mile wide, retains its natural wilderness and sense of remoteness because you can get there only by boat. Join VISIT FLORIDA’s Larry Elliston off the coast of Pine Island in southwest Florida, as he spends the day at Cayo Costa State Park.
