Throughout time this beach is deteriorating. I visited today and the water is currently filled with a "flesh eating bacteria". Everyone on the beach was terrified to go in the water. The sand was covered in trash and cigarettes. Years ago this beach was pleasant. If you'd like to experience a beautiful beach go to Sanibel. It is worth the... More

While Ft. Myers Beach has a few outstanding restaurants and some very nice resorts, the majority of the place is rather run down and populated by tattoo parlors, souvenir shops, and sketchy bars. If you're going to visit, do so soon, because the whole place is so low and flat that a few more inches of global warming-induced sea level... More

The beach is nice and if you are accustomed to crowded areas it is a great place to visit. There are plenty of local souvenir and specialty shops to include plenty of taverns and restaurants plus rentals agents for almost everything you can imagine (Kayaks to jet skis, scooters to bikes). Parking can be a challenge though depending on when... More

We love this beach! The locals are welcoming and island full of charm. We enjoyed shelling on the wide, white beaches and swimming in the warm waters of the gulf. I would recommend this beach for families wanting inexpensive entertainment for the kids, couples needing a getaway or a destination for family get togethers. Spend a few days on the... More

This was a wonderful place for a vacation. The beaches were not overly crowded. White sand beaches. Crystal clear waters.

This is one of the nicest beaches I have ever been on. The waves are just right to swim in without getting beaten up. Also, the restaurants on the beach are great! Easily accessible and very casual. It was a great beach day!

we enjoyed several walks along the beach, walking in and by the sea. the sand was warm not hot and the sea was warm too. Very pleasant walks with pit stops at the bars. clean white sand, very fine. quite busy at weekends but not over crowded. We're missing it already.

We were there in August so the tourist #'s were down. Loved it, from the beautiful white sand beach to all the little bars and restaurants. Very laid back atmosphere but a very family type of place.

We love Fort Myers Beach! We go every year in August (because my wife is a school teacher). Even though it is hot, there is usually a breeze coming off the Gulf. The beach is quiet, generally clean, and the water is very warm. There are no lifeguards and no amenities other than trash cans near the beach access areas.... More
