Known as "The Gateway to the Gulf" by locals, Bonita Springs, FL is home to some of the most beautiful beaches and landscape on the southern Gulf Coast of Mexico. Step outside one of the many private vacation rentals offered in the area onto the pristine white beaches and stroll along the turquoise blue waters. Spend your days swimming, sailing, kayaking, or parasailing; then retreat back to your vacation home at night and watch the sun set over the water from your bedroom's balcony. With both fresh water and saltwater bodies of water, throw out your line and fish for big snook, redfish, trout and tarpon, and then bring back the day's catch to grill on your vacation rental's outdoor porch or patio.
Bonita Springs, Florida is home to great dining and shopping opportunities that complement its sandy surroundings. The Promenade, located in front of Bonita Bay on U.S. 41, has a number of trendy boutiques, art galleries, specialty shops, and great restaurants. Join friends and family for dinner at any one of The Promenade's fine dining establishments after playing a round of golf at The Bonita Bay West Island Course, an 18-hole course set amidst a beautiful Bonita backdrop.
