NATURE… ART… FOOD – That’s Matlacha/Pine Island. This community is amazing. Along with boating, fishing, biking and shopping , here are some of my other favorite things to do in this beautiful coastal village:
4637 Pine Island Rd NW, Matlacha
This is a must see! Leoma Lovegrave’s work is stunning. The colors are so vibrant – her work is truly one of a kind. When I visited her gallery (and garden) I was in awe. She really encompasses the Florida that I love so much.
4577 Pine Island Road N.W., Matlacha
Sometimes the most beautiful things are the simplest. Every view from Matlacha Community Park takes my breath away. So thankful to live here!
4530 Pine Island Rd. NW, Matlacha
This was such a fun surprise! Unfortunately, the tours are only available during season, BUT… I strongly recommend that you take advantage of the tour when it’s available. I learned so much about Matlacha (and had some of the most amazing food ever) during our walk about!
4120 Pine Island Rd. NW Matlacha
So this Florida girl has to admit… I am a little scared of kayaks! BUT… I have many friends that kayak around Matlacha/Pine Island that say it’s absolutely stunning (and I have seen the pictures – I concur)!

This place is small, but interesting! Whether you like bats or not.. you cannot deny that the view from the “Bat House” is absolutely gorgeous!
3930 Pine Island Rd NW, Matlacha
I am “all in” for any tour where I have the potential to see dolphins! Okay… I will be honest.. I am “all in” for any boat tour.

The Heritage Trail at Randell Research Center is one of my favorite places in Lee County. It’s so peaceful and serene… sometimes we just need a quiet place to regroup!

I LOVE history. Anytime I can learn more about my community, I am all in!
4625 Pine Island Road NW, Matlacha
This “wild child” loves all art – so when I visit this gallery I am in my glory! I wish I had that talent!

I don’t golf (sorry), but I hear this is a really nice golf course!
