We were staying in Ft. Myers for 3 days. We spent one day on Sanibel Island, having very nice beaches. However, we find Ft. Myers Beach much better, very wide, clean and sand white like snow!

Came down especially from Orlando to visit this beautiful part of the State, were you'll find well cared for beaches, wildlife and wonderful surroundings, with the option to partake in various activities, most of which are advertised in all hotels and most restaurants. Would recommend the day trip if you're staying in Disney area, it's about 170 miles.

White Sandy Beaches. An Amazing Boardwalk. Lots of Shops in the Area. Great Beach Wear Shops to buy Name Brand Swimwear and Flip Flops. Lot of Restaurants just a Block from the Beach. EAT AT BELLA MOZZARELLA! THE PHILLY CHEESESTEAK IS AMAZING! There is Free Parking at the End of the Island.

This is a popular vacation site, and the beach is fantastic with powdery sand and warm Gulf of Mexico water.

There are establishments for food... More

Great beach but difficult to get around with all the construction. Water quality not as bad as the TV made it out to be.
