If you like long walks on the beach without fighting the crowd, Fort Myers Beach is the place for you. The beach is 8 miles long and has convenient access to shops convenience stores, restaurants, and bars. The beach is very wide and has abundant shelling opportunities if you are into that. It's far enough south that it's always warm.

A wonderful time here in Ft. Myers. The people are just incredibly helpful and nice. We came in the 'off season' due to a break out kids had. Thoroughly enjoyed the beaches, local people, food, and fun things to do.

I read that Ft Myers has been having problems with red tide and algae blooms coming from the release of water from Lake Okeechobee. It shows! The water is green from algae and visibility is poor. There was a smelly odor in certain spots on the beach. I didn't swim in it. Overall it is a nice beach. I guess... More

If your use to busier places like Clearwater for example, Fort Myers Beach may be a welcome respite. Fort Myers Beach is large enough to provide plenty to do and yet small enough to provide a little slower pace than many of the larger beach areas. In addition you have what is probably the most abundant ecosystem in Florida with... More
