Bonita Beach is a place where you won’t see big crowds but it is a fun place for the whole family. Alright, enough of spending all this time inside a building, time to get out, and Bonita Beach in Lee County, Florida is the outdoors at it's best. Not too many hotels nearby, you'll have

to drive a bit to get to one, but if you don’t have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. There's so much to do at Bonita Beach including swimming, golf, boating, and fishing, so getting bored is not something that is likely to happen. The way the water meets the coast is such

a beautiful sight. The campgrounds here at Bonita Beach are pretty good. Going to the beach here in Florida is a must. For you golfers we recommend close by Bonita Bay Club Golf Course, and Bonita Beach is not far at all from Cape Coral-Fort Myers. A quick journey to Imperial River next

Trianon Bonita Bay, Bonita Springs to Bonita Beach is a glorious idea, and Fish Trap Bay is nearby and always magnificent to visit. An afternoon playing golf at Raptor Bay Golf Club is always a pleasure; a golf course nearby is River Ridge Golf & Country Club. A lot of rain falls at Bonita Beach; the month with most of the rain is June; April is the month with the least moisture. Summertime highs at Bonita Beach typically tend to be in the 90's with night lows in the 70's. Throughout the wintertime the highs are regularly in the 70's; after the sun is down during the wintertime temperatures at Bonita Beach fall into the 50's.

Wednesday I fished Fish Trap Bay and Intrepid Waters with Mike Aiello, wife Barbara, eight-year-old daughter Jenna, and six-year-old daughter Alexa. It was the girls' first fishing adventure, and they were keeping score: Jenna caught thirty-four fish, mostly snappers and cravalle jacks, including a couple of keeper snappers. Alexa caught seventeen fish, including a keeper-sized sand bream. They were looking forward to eating their catches for dinner.

Fishing is exellent here with all angling opportunities. The gulf beaches are also a great way to spend your day.
