Believe it or not, there is still untouched coastline in Florida. Unfortunately, it's only accessible by boat or kayak. Which is probably the reason it is undeveloped, if we're being honest. Archaeological evidence places humans visiting this barrier island to approximately 14,000 years ago. Whether providing shelter for indigenous americans, civil war veterans, fisherman, or endangered wildlife, Cayo Costa has a nature of security.
