Heaped with sugar-sand, Fort Myers Beach is a popular destination for visitors eager to engage in watersports such as parasailing and kayaking – or just as eager to simply relax on the inviting beach. 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 sugar-sand. Fort Myers Beach has accommodations in all price ranges and lots to do. You can go parasailing or 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.
Considered to be the heart of Estero Island, Times Square in Fort Myers Beach is the perfect place to go after a long day of fun in the sun! Located adjacent to the pier, you’ll find a wide variety of some of the island’s best restaurants, unique shops, and entertaining street performers. Those who are unfamiliar with the Fort Myers Beach area may not even know where to begin when they first encounter Times Square.
Fort Myers Beach Pier
Whether you prefer fishing, people-watching, photography, strolling, or relaxing in the sun, the Fort Myers Beach pier is a great destination day or night. Extending far into the Gulf of Mexico and adjacent to the bustling Times Square area of Fort Myers Beach, the pier is a central hub of activity. Gaze down at beachgoers or up at parasailers, watch dolphins play, listen to live music, check out what the anglers are catching and watch the sunset. There’s a small bait, snack and gift shop halfway down the pier. On the weekends enjoy a sunset celebration at the foot of the pier with bands, artists and other interesting performers. There is plenty of sand around the pier to spread out your blanket and set up camp for the day.
