Explore Pine Island
After Mango Mania, be sure to take the time to explore one of Florida’s most hidden paradises. Just a few miles from Cape Coral, this island is blanketed mangroves and colorful villages, and is home to artist communities, a historic fishing village, a famous cafe called The Perfect Cup, and a quaint cottage community known as Bookelia. It’s a true Southwest Florida gem and a great place to explore after you’ve gorged on enough mangoes.
