“This restaurant is less than a block away from Villa Key West...however there is a canal to hinder your journey if you were walking. The drive around the canal is a little more than a mile and well worth it. You can dine on the water or inside. The daily special are always worth checking out.”

Natural Feature
“Pine Island is very unique, offers wonderful fresh fish and casual dining anywhere you choose to go. Tons of local art is on both sides of the road. Parking can be tricky at times, but we have learned to just live with it! Boating is very enjoyable and easy to find the right fix for your party. One can easily spend the day wondering around the many inviting places.”

Premise
“Pine Island gem! Galt Preserve is a habitat restoration project on 265 acres that is successfully supporting native plants, birds and animals on southern Pine Island. Often a good place to see Florida butterflies. Galt features 2.5 miles of hiking trails and boardwalks, a kayak and canoe launch, fishing pier, picnic pavilions, restroom and a paved parking area. The preserve consists of 12 plant communities, including mangrove swamp and mesic flatwoods. The preserve is also home to a variety of bird and animal species, including bald eagle, bobcat and American alligator. Located just south of the much smaller Pine Island Flatwoods Preserve. ”
