Fort Myers Beach Travel Guide: 125 reviews and 251 photos


Hans and I came to FORT MYERS BEACH to visit a good friend of ours who has a condo here. She has been coming to this area for over 30 years and absolutely loves it here. And I can see why. this is a great Beach town. The beach is wide and has nice soft sand. There is lots of little shops and restaurants. This time of year it gets real busy here as Snowbirds and other "Northerners" come here to escape the cold weather. I actually found it too busy and congested at times.

    Like a snow bird I envy those who can escape winter weather in such a beautiful place. Thanks Lori for sharing!

    I understand it is a beach town, but it seems to be also a great seafood city both with the restaurants and the fresh seafood market! Yummy!

    The beach looks great, although I don't like crowded places. But for the seafood, I'd try it for sure.

    I think I was in Fort Myers many, many years ago but don't remember a thing about it, nice page!

    Ft. Myers and Naples have grown a LOT since I first visited there - about 50 years ago. My, I must be getting old.

    We've been to Fort Myers about three times; lots of good restaurants, but I prefer Naples, Bonita Beach and Bonita Springs. Loved the Glider photo of you and Hansi...lovely. Sure could use some of that warmth right now.

    I don't care for crowded beaches but the Glider Lounge looks great. Naples is a lovely area, my aunt lived there when she wasn't traveling. Must be nice!

    I am not a fan of beaches, especially crowded ones. But seafood would work great for me there + watching people at Times Square. I'd visit Naples and I would look for the Vanderbilts house there :-)

    I visited the Ft. Myers area a few years ago (prior to VT), but I was so intent on birdwatching that I didn't really see any of the sights.
