Fort Myers Beach hotels are in the heart of a laid-back gateway to Captiva Island, Sanibel Island, and other top Florida islands. They host more than a million annual visitors escaping to some of the nicest beaches in the state where seven miles of beachfront boast shallow water and virtually no undertow. All around are opportunities for outdoor recreation, from classic water sports like windsurfing, fishing, golf, and shopping (which some in Florida might well call a sport). From dining in privileged locations overlooking the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay to bountiful marinas, theaters, and casino boats, Fort Myers is diverse, exciting, and a relaxing destination for Florida beach vacations.
