South Seas Island Resort, Southwest Florida’s escape-time jewel, seamlessly blends the best of both vacationing worlds. Situated on 133 acres of protected wildlife sanctuary surrounded by pristine seas, the resort is a natural for lovers of the great outdoors. Whether your idea of getting outside entails a tennis racquet, a golf club, a beach blanket, a paddle or a fishing rod, you can easily spend the day under the warm Florida sun. Stroll the beach, schuss the slides in the H2WHOA! water park or book a charter to explore untethered islands to the north. Head to the marina to shop for a day’s excursion or rent a boat or Waverunner to captain your own adventure. Hop aboard the Lady Chadwick for a serenaded sunset cruise. Or finally give in to your urge to try paddle boarding in the bay.
