About Estero Island
Lahaina Inn Resort is located on the Gulf Coast of Estero Island in the town of Fort Myers Beach in Southwest Florida.
The LeeTran Trolley runs daily between Summerlin Square, Estero Island, and Bonita Springs. The fare is inexpensive (only fifty cents at this writing), and LeeTran offers discounts for all-day or three-day passes. For current rates and details, please check their website at www.RideLeeTran.com.
Near the Mantazas Pass Bridge (also known as the Sky Bridge), a public fishing pier adjoins a small beachfront park with public restrooms/showers. Shops and restaurants are located nearby. There’s an hourly fee for parking.
Bowditch Point Regional Park, which is located on the northern tip of Estero Island, is a 17-acre beachfront park and nature preserve that offers grills, picnic tables, restrooms, and showers. A boardwalk leads to picnic areas and the beach. A short trail winds through the preserve, which stretches from the Gulf of Mexico to the bay. The park’s amenities include a deck for group gatherings and a covered waiting area for trolley service. There’s an hourly fee for parking.
Matanzas Pass Preserve is nearly 60 acres of unspoiled sanctuary located one mile south of Matanzas Pass Bridge on Bay Road (east side of Estero Boulevard). The preserve offers 1.25 miles of boardwalk where you can view the island’s natural foliage and Estero Bay.
The island features a variety of restaurants (everything from sandwich shops to upscale dining)! The area is especially known for its delicious seafood!
Two island grocery stores, Topps and Publix, are available. Publix Supermarket is especially convenient – about a two-minute drive or a ten-minute walk north of Lahaina on the east side of Estero Boulevard.
- Shops (many feature beach wear and souvenirs)
- Nightspots with live entertainment
The island post office is located at 200 Caroline Avenue (north of Lahaina and east of Estero Boulevard) and is open Mon.–Fri., 8:30–4:30. (The lobby is accessible all day and night Mon.–Sat. to drop off mail and to buy postage from the machine.)

Sanibel Island (known as the “Shelling Capital of the World”) and Captiva Island (the setting for Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s classic book Gift from the Sea) are a 20-30 minute drive from our resort (expect traffic delays during rush hour and peak tourist season). As you view the gorgeous sunsets from Lahaina, you’ll also see the beacon from Sanibel’s lighthouse!
