A tiny island with big-time adventures

What could you possibly do on an island measuring just 1 mile long and a half-mile wide? More than you could ever imagine! Located off the coast of Cape Coral along Florida's Gulf Coast, Useppa Island provides the ideal vacation on land and sea. Want to curl your toes in the sand, sip on a cocktail, and never leave the comfort of your Useppa Island vacation rental? This laidback island is the perfect spot for unwinding. But what if you long for adventure? Then spend your days visiting nearby islands, frolicking in the gulf waters, and hiking through state parks.

Exploring the island by land and sea

Grab your hat and spend the day on land collecting seashells, birdwatching, or sunbathing along the island beaches. Itching to get into the warm gulf waters? Treat yourself to a quick dip or embark on an afternoon of snorkeling, kayaking, or scuba diving. Bypass the shops and fish for your own dinner as you sign up for a fishing tour, or man your own vessel into waters known for deep-sea fishing. Not a seafood fan? Local captains will give you a tour of the region as well, without the rod and tackle.

Getting to know you: island hopping and history lessons

What better way to start your trip than with a visit to Barbara Sumwalt Useppa Island Historical Museum, where you'll learn about the region's history. Tear yourself away from the comfort of your Useppa Island vacation rental as you set out to explore nearby islands, including Cayo Costa State Park. The 2,426-acre island is only accessible by boat, ferry, or helicopter, but when you're lying on its 9 miles of glorious beaches, you'll understand why it was worth the effort. Cool off with a swim, hike the nature trails, and sit in on an ecology lecture at the amphitheater.

Sunshine and pleasant temps. What else is new?

Pack your pancho or prepare to get drenched if you're visiting Useppa Island from June through September, when monthly rainfall totals measure between 8 to 10 inches. Raindrops are a welcome relief from the hot and humid summers when temperatures typically climb into the high 90s and you'll find yourself blasting the A/C in your Useppa Island vacation rental. Things stay comfortable the rest of the year, however, with highs rarely dropping below the mid-70s. You may scoff at the island's so-called "winter" season, when evening temps hover around the high 50s.

Sunny beaches and tropical islands: paradise found

Natural beauty abounds throughout Useppa Island with banyan trees, exotic flowers, and lush vegetation typically only found in perfectly maintained greenhouses. Mangrove swamps, dense forests, and bayous are common throughout the island as well. Who needs a zoo in a region so rich with wildlife? Don't be surprised if you spot manatees and dolphins swimming in the crystal clear waters that lap against the pristine beaches. Florida offers strict protection for endangered species, so you may start seeing more loggerhead sea turtles, gopher tortoises, and southern bald eagles as well.
