All About Fort Myers Beach
Fort Myers Beach, Florida, is known for its sugary-soft sand, breathtaking sunsets, and beautiful ocean views. Set on Estero Island, the seven miles of wide, gently sloping coastline welcomes water sports enthusiasts and sunbathers alike. Spend the day relaxing on the family-friendly beaches or get adventurous and view the area as you parasail over the water below. Visit in November, and you’ll get the chance to marvel at epic sandcastles during the annual American Sand Sculpting Championship. While you’re at the beach, try your hand at charter fishing or enjoy fresh seafood at one of the many restaurants lining the coast.
Nature lovers can stay in a Fort Myers vacation rental close to Lovers Key State Park with access to some of Florida’s best hiking, biking, and canoeing. Step back in time at Cayo Costa Island State Preserve and be rewarded with acres of pine forests, oak palm hammocks, mangrove swamps, nature trails, and shady picnic areas. Unwind at the end of the day with a visit to Times Square, the pedestrian-friendly shopping and dining area.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Fort Myers Beach?
Fort Myers Beach is a great place to be between the months of March and May. Relax in the warm sun and head to the annual Fort Myers Beach Shrimp Festival, featuring a parade, art exhibitions, and a shrimp eating contest. Summers are hot, humid, and a little rainy, but that shouldn’t keep you away from enjoying summer break on the white sand beaches. Keep in mind that hurricane season runs from September to November, so be prepared for adverse conditions when staying at Fort Myers house rentals. Come December, when the storms have passed, mild temperatures welcome those looking to relax on the area’s beaches, and art lovers are well served with over 200 artists, live entertainment, regional food, and more at ArtFest Fort Meyers the first week of February.

Mound Key Archaeological State Park
Venture out into Estero Bay for a cultural and environmental learning experience among the gumbo limbo trees.

Once here, walk the self-guided trail and learn about the subtropical vegetation and history of the Calusa.
Great Calusa Blueway
This 190-mile marked canoe and kayak trail meanders through the coastal waters and inland tributaries of Southwest Florida, from the Gulf of Mexico, through the bays of Sanibel and Captiva, to sheltered mangrove creeks. Home to abundant marine life, shorebirds, and crustaceans, the waters can be enjoyed equally by nature lovers and paddlers of all abilities.
The seven miles of sugar-sand beach the area is known for boasts over 30 public beach access points. Rental spots for watersports equipment line the beach, while Fort Myers Beach Pier has an on-site tackle shop for fishing and pet-friendly Bonita Beach DogPark welcomes four-legged friends.
