The Great Calusa Blueway
The area around Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina is filled with incredible kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding spots. The most popular one is The Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, which you can easily access via Pink Shell’s marina!
This 190-mile series of interconnected waterways is great for beginners and advanced paddlers alike. Along the way, keep an eye out for friendly dolphins, fossilized shark teeth and everything in between.
We stayed at Pink Shell and had an incredible time! The resort was loaded full with activities and amenities. You have the option of paddle boarding and kayaking the ocean for free. I was shocked to find out that the resort staff actually cleans and replaces linens every day unlike many resorts! Breakfast is included and it is DELICIOUS. The omelets are amazing. One thing you don’t want to miss is hanging out with Ranger Rob. He is the coolest guy! He took us on a 2 hour kayak tour and we saw several manatees and dolphins up close! The manatees swam right under our kayak! He also has games poolside and activities on the beach. You can ask him ANYTHING about nature and wildlife and he will know the answer! 10/10 recommend staying at pink shell!
We had a wonderful first family vacation with our almost two year old daughter! She had a great time and loved the pool and activities! Ranger Rob was wonderful and very knowledgeable! He was full of interesting information and very personable to talk to!
Overall, friendly staff and good amenities. We got there at 11 even though check in's at 4, and they were able to get a room early. All staff were super friendly and welcoming. There were multiple pools and enough chairs out by the beach for everyone. Rooms were very clean and came with a huge TV, a nice little balcony, a kitchen with all the utensils and cooking supplies you might need. Complimentary breakfast was also tasty and fully equipped. Can definitely see myself coming back if I need a weekend getaway in the future!
Great place for a family getaway. Pools were clean and very good for kids, beach was well maintained and had plenty of room. Free kayaks and paddleboard rentals included. Breakfast was also included and was buffet style which we took advantage of every day. 15 min drive to Sanibel was also a plus for us.
This was my 5th time at the Pink Shell so you might say I absolutely love it! Staff is amazing, food is great and there are always activities for kids and us kids at heart. I also highly recommend the kayak tour with Ranger Rob! He’s extremely knowledgeable about wildlife and we had a blast! It was our first time kayaking and he was super helpful and patient with us. We were lucky enough to see dolphins extremely close to our kayak. What an amazing experience I will never forget!
The Pink Shell is a great place for a family vacation. They are on a beautiful spot on the beach, a short walk from Bowditch Point Park and close to Times Square,, with everything you need for a great trip. We stayed in one of the one bedroom villas and it was fantastic to have a full kitchen and laundry machine right in our room. The staff were friendly and helpful too. We'd totally go back.
