Heaped with sugary white sand, Fort Myers Beach on Estero Island is a popular destination for visitors eager to engage in watersports such as parasailing and kayaking – or just as eager to simply relax on its inviting long sandy beach. Fort Myers Beach has all types of accommodation in all price ranges and lots to do.
Fort Myers Beach sits on a little barrier island, about seven miles long, and the beach is fabulous – wide, gradually sloping, and thick with the area’s justifiably famed sand.
You can go on a dolphin eco-tour via waverunner, or on a fishing charter.
Special bonus: Just off the coast of Fort Myers Beach and easy to reach are the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.
