Jim Neville Marine Preserve

Little Sarasota Bay
Sarasota, FL 34242
Named for Jim Neville, a renowned Sarasota environmentalist, this island is a popular boating destination. With its very low elevation, it makes for a wet hike during high tides, but the variety of coastal birds, plants, and wildlife make it well worthwhile. See the Neville Marine Preserve Trail, from Paddle Sarasota, a Guide to Sarasota's kayak and canoe trails. Please pack your trash off the island: "Leave no Trace".
