    Hi-just found this channel.today.
    I must say, I have lived in FL since I was 9yrd old and never heard of this lovely place!
    .How long is that stretch of over water highway?
    Where do most of the people, if not all, go when there is hurricane watch/warning?
    Nice video- I liked the music too- it sort of keeps one in focus..not loud, not weird noises, a muzakieislandyjazzie keep going sort of thing… I think I just created a new genre description. Ha.
    Thank you.

    The largest Island in Florida is South Florida. The Caloosahatchee River, Lake Okeechobee, and St. Lucie River cut the state in half making South Florida an island.

    Matlacha is a lovely small island before you get to Pine Island.

  8. Tim Smith on March 10, 2020 at 3:22 pm

    My wife and I, such great great memories of that area

  9. James Flagg on March 10, 2020 at 3:22 pm

  12. Larry Burns on March 10, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    another day in Paradise..great music too thanks

  13. Frogman Smith on March 10, 2020 at 3:25 pm

    Went to Ft. Myers Beach last fall and drove down to this place. The artsy shops were incredible but almost next door was Blue Dog Grill. Even though TripAdvisor said it was 4.5 out of 5 stars…EyUCK. Most awful meal of entire trip!

  14. Donna Marie Harris on March 10, 2020 at 3:27 pm

    Definitely going on my bucket list. Thanks Robert! (New follower here).

  15. Tamer 1 on March 10, 2020 at 3:29 pm

    I love the west coast of Florida.

  16. Dolly Hewett on March 10, 2020 at 3:31 pm

    LOVELY AND PEACEFUL.

  17. Dean Grigsby on March 10, 2020 at 3:31 pm

  18. Adriana Godoy on March 10, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    I like your accent

  19. aking032962 on March 10, 2020 at 3:33 pm

    Best Filet Mignon topped with shrimp, asparagus and bearnaise sauce, loaded baked potatoe! Best meal of my life! I enjoyed that at the first restaurant you had Mullet. Best atmosphere right on the water!

  20. Rich Pon on March 10, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    For someone who has never been to Florida, this video is great. It shows me more than I expected. Great video quality and narration. Thanks Roberto!!

  21. White Boy on March 10, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    Dear god please do something about the sharp S sounds in your videos! My ears are ringing now. Sorry but you get a dislike for the poor audio.

  22. Melenkurion Abatha on March 10, 2020 at 3:46 pm

    Yay!! TRUMP TOWN. No wonder it is so nice and clean and safe!

  23. Lyle L on March 10, 2020 at 3:48 pm

    I used to travel lots in Florida but I didn’t even know that there was so many crazy uneducated people there in Florida, who would advertize they voted for that idiot TRUMP, wow I will not be going back to Florida.

  24. Gene on March 10, 2020 at 3:50 pm

    lived in North Cape Coral, we went fishing there all the time

    Trust me it’s not what you think, I’ve live on that island for 35 years, it’s only paradise on what you see, truth be told, there is more of the illegal white stuff coming thru that island than there is sand. And no the crime rate is not low

  26. James Weir on March 10, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    you should look into a narrative job with National Geographic-your voice is mellifluous.

  27. geo dezix on March 10, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    What’s up with that TRUMP sign….

  28. Hillary Clintub on March 10, 2020 at 3:53 pm

    Boy, how things have changed since my dad retired to Pine Island in 1972.

  29. Sean O on March 10, 2020 at 3:54 pm

    And the whole vid gets wrecked at 5:40.

  30. Uoo Hoo on March 10, 2020 at 3:55 pm

    I remember back in the 80’s, you could buy an acre for $500. Wish I would have!

  31. Marc Stevens on March 10, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    Nice travel vlog, video editing music and a perfect voice! Makes me wanna go there!

  32. Susan Kelly on March 10, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    I live in Southwest Florida the last 6 years but never got to Matlcha. Now I’m ready/ Florida rocks

  33. david davies on March 10, 2020 at 3:57 pm

    I don’t know why this video showed up on my playlist, but I watched it. Being a mid-aged guy from the Midwest, I always had a dislike for thinking about living in Florida. It’s too hot and humid, too many people, and overrated in my opinion. After watching this video though, sure did make me wish I lived in Florida now. Love the charm of small islands, surrounded by water and wildlife and sea life, and boats… Maybe I am finally getting old and tired of this cold, snowy winters and need to move south. Great video Robert.

  34. Larry Burns on March 10, 2020 at 3:58 pm

    Lots of fun video thank you Robert..you are a fortunate person….

  35. Ray Mercer on March 10, 2020 at 4:00 pm

    Awesome video! Well done Traveling Robert. The old Florida feel is disappearing, hope Matlacha keeps it that way.

  36. tinkmarz1 on March 10, 2020 at 4:02 pm

    This is authentic Florida…before elitism, designer clothes, etc. and the bull that goes with them. It’s a part that I thought was nearly dead…but seems there’s some left who appreciate the genuine qualities that life has to offer. I’d take a vacation here in a heartbeat, wouldn’t even consider spending it in a high rise with a heated pool surrounded by overpriced restaurants…not even if it was free. I’d also love to take a trip down the "Follow That Dream" highway in Florida. I understand a billionaire from Georgia has bought most of the properties there and intends to keep it just as it was when the Elvis Presley movie was made. Many KUDOS to him. And to you, Traveling Robert, for this most captivating video…! Many pleasant journeys wished for you, my friend…!

  37. Bo Duke on March 10, 2020 at 4:03 pm

    My favorite shrimp and grits out of all my travels at the coffee shop/breakfast joint just over the bridge on the right. It’s a bit spicy but soooo good.

  38. Flying Dog on March 10, 2020 at 4:04 pm

    Another 5 years and it will be underwater. FUCK FLORIDA

  39. Sarah Chido on March 10, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    I’m a Matlacha real estate agent, it’s so beautiful here. Thanks Robert, great job! Sarah@onthegulfhomes.com

  40. Martha Nava on March 10, 2020 at 4:05 pm

    Really enjoyed your slow tour, it felt as if I was there with you guys. Just lovely!

  41. E Cannon on March 10, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    My God that Grouper Ruben melt looked sooooooooo good!

  42. Mysamlyon Lyon on March 10, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    I view a lot of yachting and coach RV vids, first time I’ve seen your videos Robert, great radio voice, nice camera work and nice showcasing of Florida, regards πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦πŸ‘

  43. Gene on March 10, 2020 at 4:06 pm

    Dolphin sandwiches are great

  44. L J Sopjes on March 10, 2020 at 4:07 pm

    Robert sounds as if he is a relative of Antonio Banderas’s.

  45. Craig H on March 10, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Another awesome video!! Great job.

  46. Gino Tapia on March 10, 2020 at 4:09 pm

    Im sorry Roberto. For me that is far from being paradise.

  47. John Barber on March 10, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    I thought it said Metallica island.
    That would ROCK.

  48. Clarence Curry on March 10, 2020 at 4:10 pm

    Great video Robert! You make me miss old Florida all over again.

  49. monty artripe on March 10, 2020 at 4:11 pm

    $65 per night in the off season to damn expensive

  50. m. young on March 10, 2020 at 4:13 pm

    Majestic sunset, alluring palm trees, serene water all around and Trump – PARADISE
