Recent Fort Myers Beach reviews

  • Great Place

    "Well maintained, immaculate property. We have returned for two years. Solar heated pool was perfect for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren. Nearby beach and adjacent canal could not have been better. Simple surroundings, great neighbors and we are devastated that our new dates couldn't be accommodated. Also manager Kathie Santomero was the best. Thank you Dana and Kathie for a wonderful vacation!"

    "the condo was beautiful, we really enjoyed our stay. The downside was the birds are nesting so there were areas blocked off."

  • great place

    "Our family stayed here in october 2014 and we have rented properties on fmb for the past five years. Fantastic house and location for all ages. Everything you will need is right here. The owner was always accessible by phone if we had a question. We will definitely be booking here next year."

  • Paradise At It's Finest

    "My husband and I recently stayed at this property and we absolutely loved it. We were thrilled at what a beautiful place we had rented for the week. The wildlife (dolphins swimming right in front of us), scenic views and privacy were among the reasons we will be back again next year. The other residents were warm and friendly. My husband did a lot of fishing, sea shelling and relaxed on the private beach. The restaurants in the area serve some of the best seafood I have ever had. Nervous Nellies (on Fort Myers Beach) had such a relaxing atmosphere but their food was out of this world. For anyone looking to soak up the sunshine and enjoy the scenic views this is the place for you."

Fort Myers Beach Travel Tips

More than 6,200 people call Fort Myers Beach home. This town located on Estero Island wasn't officially incorporated until December 1995, making it a newer Floridian hotspot. Although Fort Myers Beach may be small, more than 1.8 million visitors flock there every year to enjoy the beaches, fishing, shopping, dining, golf and entertainment along the Gulf.

There's no undertow in Fort Myers Beach, making it the "World's Safest Beach" and perfect for families who want to get their toes wet. The entire island is 7 miles long, a nice walk or jog for those who want to work in a little exercise on their trip.

The area that was once home to Native Americans and Spaniards is a favorite among tourists who dine on "pink gold" shrimp and celebrate the fishing industry with the week-long Shrimp Festival held in March.

Fort Myers Beach Attractions

There's a lot to do on the tiny island of Estero including water sports, beach activities and outdoor and indoor attractions. There are 25 public beach accesses on the Gulf side of Estero Island that are marked for easy spotting.

You can stop by one of several playgrounds and parks in Fort Myers Beach. Head to Lynn Hall Memorial Park, where you can fish off of a 600-foot pier. Sports lovers can venture over to Bay Oaks Recreation Center for basketball, tennis and volleyball courts.

There are 17 acres of fun on the northern tip of Estero Island at Bowditch Point Regional Park. For more protected wildlife areas, check out the Matanzas Pass Wildlife Preserve with a restored cottage, 42 acres of wilderness and a sanctuary for native plants and animals. Seven acres are developed for a park and the rest remains part of a preservation. There are boardwalks that allow visitors to Estero Back Bay access to observe ospreys and pelicans as they fish for food. Kayaks and canoes are available at Oyster Bay and Lovers Key Barrier Island.
