In a nutshell
Go in the fall before the snowbirds arrive.
Most of Fort Myers Beach is laid back, with quiet beaches, small cottages, motels, and come condos. However, the intersection of San Carlos Boulevard and Estero Boulevard is so busy, with its nightlife, shopping, and entertainment, that it has come to be known as Times Square. This is the heart of...
Not the prettiest beaches in Florida, but will full fill the basic beach bum needs. A nice pier in the busiest part of the beach. More of a younger crowd, if that is your thing. So have fun, look at the hotties and use plenty of sun screen.
There is a splendid sunset almost every evening on Fort Myers Beach. People come out onto the beach just to watch it. You can say "a sunset is a sunset" but that's really not the case. Depending on cloud formation and weather conditions, some are more spectacular than others... but they are all very...
Ft. Myers Beach Air Show
The Fort Myers Beach Air Show takes place in May every year. We always get to see the planes coming over the beach at the quiet end of the island, on their way to and from SW Florida International Airport, but last year we decided to go to the centre of the action.
We took the Island Trolley to the...

Well we just got back from this place and I can tell you that we should have went to the place next to it. So we gave Snug Harbor a shot...The lady at the front counter acted and looked like her life was about to end and why are we wanting to eat there? The food started out average and soon became...
Smokin' Oyster Brewery (SOB)
Smokin' Oyster Brewery, or SOB for short, is about three blocks off the beach, so perhaps not quite as touristy as some of the places overlooking the water. We arrived on a Thursday evening about 9:30 or 9:45, just before the kitchen closed, and we left the restaurant and...
Here's a few more sunset photos, we made it to several sunsets and I tried to get a little artsy with the shots to add some subject. After the sun goes down everone claps and starts off on the nights adventure, be it shopping, drinking, eating, fishing or watching the entertainers in Time Square....

Now we love to hunt for sea shells no matter where we go, but the Gulf always provide a good booty. the best island is Sanibel by far, then Captiva and Fort Myers Beach is not far behind. So bring your water shoes and look carefully along the waterline and you're bound to find some jems of your own....
The Shrimping Industry
Estero Island, home of Fort Myers Beach, has always had a fishing industry. 2,000 years ago, Calusa Indians constructed shell mounds from the oysters they harvested the bay. Around the 1600s, Cuban fishermen established a fishing village called a rancho on Estero Island,...
The ocean at Fort Myers Beach is very safe and very clean but you do need to be aware of possible dangers under foot. Stingrays are not always easy to see as they can bury themselves in the sand on the seabed. They don't take kindly to being stepped on and will sting if they are. The stings are not...
Lived in Tampa/Clearwater area and absolutely loved it....Thought all of Florida Gulf coast would be as nice. Then I moved to Ft. Misery, what a disappointment. The beach waters are murkey due to the close proximity of the Coloosahachee River. And for some god forsaken reason the town leaders think...

There really is not dunes to speak of here but they do have dune grass that helps to protect the beaches so please obey the law. This does help and maybe our grandkids can enjoy the beach when they have kids too. Thank you!
Along the intercoastal side of Fort Meyers, you will find the SHRIMP BOATS. We went to a Seafood store to get some fresh jumbo shrimp and just behind the store were the boats. They were huge. Most were docked for the day already as they usually go out very early in the...
