Matanzas Pass Preserve is nearly 60 acres of unspoiled sanctuary located one mile south of Matanzas Pass Bridge just off Estero Blvd. on Estero Island, within the Town of Ft. Myers Beach. The main entrance is on Bay Road located behind Beach Elementary School just beyond the Estero Island Historic Cottages.
The Preserve offers 1.25 miles of trails that wind through the canopies of mangroves and an oak hammock. Take the time to rest under the pavilion as you take in a view of the Estero Bay. Watch for the plentiful wildlife and native plants as you enjoy an afternoon hiking in the Preserve. There is also a paddle craft landing that is part of the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail so you can also paddle in and enjoy the preserve.
