Florida has over 1,000 miles of beaches and many are rated as the best in the United States. Our Beaches are interconnected to our wetlands by the flow of water that moves from our inland areas to the shorelines. Wetlands help to filter and clean the water that travels to our shorelines. Tourism is still the biggest part of the economy in SW Florida. Ft. Myers and Sanibel have some of Florida’s finest beaches. Naples and Bonita Beach also have some world famous beaches.
