Are you looking for the best vacation spot for you? Fort Myers Beach is a family destination with so much to do. You can walk the beaches for miles. Fort Myers Beach is known as one of the safest beaches with shallow waters. You can drive across the bridge to Sanibel to shell on the beaches. Sanibel is known for its shelling activities.
Fort Myers Beach is a tourist destination year round. The snow birds flock there during the winter. But, summer time is a great time to bring the kids. They can play on the beach, in the pools, go downtown to shop, rent jet skis, pontoon boats, go parasailing, go fishing. For the parents, there is also the beaches and the pools, sight seeing, a casino boat, golfing and many many more activities. You are about an hour drive from the Everglades to see the alligators and ride the airboats.
My favorite time of year to go to Fort Myers Beach is after August 15 and before Thanksgiving. The kids have gone back to school and it is quiet without many tourists. But, the quiet time allows lots of relaxation. The activities are still there to do, but there are less crowds.
The waters of the Gulf of Mexico are warm. Dolphins swim in Estero Bay and are often seen and Big Carlos Pass. Every nesting season, the Loggerhead turtle make their annual journey to lay fragile eggs on the beaches. Birds of all descriptions also call this wonderful sanctuary home. You can look out over the soft white sands and watch as boaters and fisherman come through Big Carlos Pass on their sea vessels. At dusk, you can watch the sunset on the beach.
Fort Myers Beach is a wonderful vacation destination for everyone. Accommodations Affordable are On available.
Restaurants are everywhere. Do not forget to try to locally caught grouper. Crunchy grouper is a local specialty. You can watch the shrimp boats come in and unload their catch.
