Few residential communities live up to their name like Hidden Harbor, a private, gated boating community located in south Fort Myers off U.S Highway 41.
Hidden Harbor real estate is made up of only 76 homesites, 54 of them feature waterfront access with boat docks. This allows residents to get to Estero Bay and the Gulf of Mexico via the Ten Mile Canal, a 2-nautical mile boat ride.
Developed by the venerable Stock Development Company beginning in 2016, Hidden Harbor features luxurious estate-sized, single-family homes. They are perfect for the young family or those just seeking the relaxed Florida lifestyle in their retirement.
The community was awarded Community of the Year honors from the Lee Building Industry Association in 2018.
One of Lee County’s best kept secrets, Hidden Harbor is located between The Harborage and Emerson Square residential communities just south of Alico Road.

Boating, of course, is a key reason people love life at Hidden Harbor, but there are so many other compelling reasons to call this idyllic slice of paradise home.
A gorgeous, waterfront clubhouse is the ideal spot to gather with friends and neighbors, where you can enjoy a refreshing plunge in the glistening resort-style swimming pool or just lounge on the oversized sundeck.

In addition to being able to launch your boat from your own waterfront home, Hidden Harbor offers residents a kayak, canoe and paddleboard launch area. From here you can access the famed Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail, one of the most stunningly scenic waterfront experiences in all of Florida.
Hidden Harbor can accommodate vessels of up to 26-feet, and from here you have direct access to the Ten Mile Canal which opens to the west into Estero Bay.
