Florida Beach-hopping: Siesta Key, Sanibel, Ft. Myers, Naples, Marco Island

Jump to last reply

I've waited till last minute to book a trip in less than two weeks which leaves Florida as the most affordable flights. I thought it would be a good opportunity to explore some of the beaches that I've considered visiting through the years...

Siesta Key/Longboat Key
Gasparilla Island
Sanibel
Ft Myers
Naples
Marco Island

The flight is into Punta Gorda. I've never been there... Is it small? Easy to get around?
I thought we'd fly in and get to Siesta Key that afternoon and stay there 4 nights and then on down to Naples for the other 3 nights with day trips to the other beaches.

Any suggestions on places to stay (great last minute deal ideas) or if there may be a better plan? :)

Maybe somewhere neat to eat in each of those places or something worth seeing to get a real vibe of that particular area?

What about heat? Is the beach tolerable even though it's August?

We did a Pompano down to Key West roadtrip a few summers ago and survived.

I welcome any advice. I'd like to book tonight and tomorrow.
