“Big and Beautiful”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

We live locally & visit Fort Myers Beach often. If you love to walk on the beach, this is the best beach around. The beach is wide and most of the walk is flat and not rocky. Lots of shells to pick up and if you walk down to Bowditch Pointe, you may see a dolphin or two. Lots of seabirds to enjoy. If you like action, you may want to flop your chairs down near the big bluish green hotel called the Lani Kai You can eat on the top floor there too and get a great view. The hotel is in need of a rennovation, but it's still very popular with the younger crowd. They have live music and games on the beach.

“Dirty, nasty, yucky water!”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

If you want to be near Ft. Myers Beach but want a better experience, head to the south end by Diamondhead. The Times Square area is nasty!!!!!! If you want an even nicer experience, go to Lover's Key instead. The only reason I go to Ft. Myers Beach is to walk around at sunset, and even then I'm only there for a couple of hours - and that's a very infrequent visit.

“White sand and lots of shells”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Crowded beaches around Easter and spring break but very nice any other time of year. Lots of shells to find, including sand dollars. Island traffic can be congested on the one main road.

“Great week at the Beach”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

So much to do in the Fort Myers area. What's not to like water and sand everywhere. Great weather low 80's. Plenty of parking, food and shops.
