Fort Myers Beach is known for its magnificent sunsets and exciting nightlife, as well as a large number of excellent restaurants. To get anywhere on the beach, you can walk, take one of our bikes or hop on a trolley. There's even an app for that!
Just make sure you don't miss out on the amazing beach itself. It's worth waking up early at least once to get first pick of the shells and sand dollars left behind by the tide. And as you walk through the white, powdery sand and into the cool, clear gulf water, keep an eye out for dolphins at play.
Our family cherishes every moment we get to spend there, and we hope enjoy our Island Escape as much as we do.

We're located 3.5 miles south of Times Square and the Pier. It's a very pleasant 5-6 minute walk to the beach from our home. On your way to the beach, you will pass a trolley stop at Estero Blvd. There is a pedestrian crossing right there, as well.
Publix supermarket and pharmacy is about 3 blocks north, and the Beach Theater is about 3 blocks south. There is a marina right behind Publix, along with a very nice restaurant.
Beach Access 16 is rarely crowded, and it's highly unlikely your children will be exposed to the party/spring break crowd while at 'our' beach.
If the San Carlos Bridge traffic is heavy, you can use the Bonita Bridge instead and avoid all the headaches.
The trolley costs .50 per person each way, and is a great way to get around on the island during peak season.
Other Activities: boating, parasailing, health/beauty spa, basketball courts, mini golf
Why the Owner Chose Mid Island, Fort Myers Beach, FL, USA:
I can't explain it, but there is something special about Fort Myers Beach. It's not just the soft, white sands, the breathtaking sunsets, and the abundance of wildlife. There's something about the people, too. The locals are friendly and down-to-earth, as are the visitors, who come from all over the world. We love the mid-island location of our home. We're far enough away from Times Square that we don't to deal with the crowds 24/7, but if the kids want to go hang out there, they can walk, bike, or take the trolley. There are beach access crosswalks at either end of our neighborhood, and Publix grocery store is just a few blocks away.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This truly is our Island Escape. We lead hectic, stressful lives, but the minute we cross the bridge to Fort Myers Beach, we can feel the tension subside. From the colorful shops and restaurants in Times Square, to the pier, the gulf waters, and the amazing white-sand beach, there is always something to do...and nothing to do.
