Things to Do in Pine Island, Florida

If it has to do with art or being on the water, you’ll find it in Pine Island.


Pine Islanders’ livelihood create some of the greatest attractions. Spend some time looking around the tropical fruit and tree farms, exploring seafood markets and roadside stands, and eating lots of fresh fish.

Inspired by the fishermen and their colorful boats, an artist community has sprung up, particularly in Matlacha, but also throughout the island communities.

Have a look at the calendar of events, which pays homage to Pine Island heritage with monthly art weekends in season and the famous MangoMania Tropical Fruit Fair in July.

The community of Pineland, once the site of an ancient Calusa village, today is home to the Calusa Heritage Trail, which climbs to the top of a shell mound. Modern interpretive exhibits illustrate Calusa lifestyles thousands of years ago, when they built an intricate canal system here.

Eco Tourism & Outdoor Activities

You’ve gotta get out on the water, whether it’s to cast a fishing line, kayak the back waters among dolphins and manatees, or rent a boat to zip over to the beaches of North Captiva Island and Cayo Costa.

If you’d rather not steer yourself, there are water taxis and other tours that also visit Cabbage Key, a tiny nearby island with a historic lodge built atop an Indian mound.

For duffers, Pine Island’s one golf course has 18 holes and views of the water. More lie just off-island in Cape Coral.  


In the art galleries of Pine Island, you can often catch local artists at work creating or waiting on customers and happy to talk about their art.

Exotic plant nurseries, organic farms, and seafood markets add dimension and character to a shopping spree on Pine Island.
