ABOUT THE AREA
Make this your upcoming travel destination and book a resort at this flawless seaside getaway.
UNCOVER SMUGGLERS & SOAK UP FLORIDA
Today you won't find many bootleggers, or really a cove. Instead you will be immersed in miles of white crystal sand and kissed by the sun on the cove's beachfront view. While vacationing, be sure to enjoy a nice BBQ by the pool, or play a game of shuffleboard. Rain or shine, our Tiki Huts have you covered for any outdoor lounging. If your clothes need a dry, that's okay as we have an on-site laundromat for your convenience.
INDULGE IN OUR CENTRAL LOCATION

The immediate area graciously offers several options such as fine dining, boat rentals, and shopping all within walking distance. You will also be surprised to find grocery options, churches, and a library that each offer a uniqueness that captures the island life. Be sure to take advantage of the distance, grab a cocktail, take a walk, and enjoy the sunset. At Smugglers Cove, Estero Island becomes your home and so much more.
