Fort Myers Beach is a seven mile-long island with plenty of sand, surf, and fun. Tourism fuels the restaurant, hotel, and amenities industries on the island. With Gulf of Mexico water temperatures ranging from a balmy 74 degrees in January to 91 degrees in July and August. It is a popular destination for visitors eager to engage in watersports such as parasailing and kayaking – or just as eager to simply relax on the inviting beach. Fort Myers Beach sits on a little barrier island, about seven miles long, and the beach is fabulous – wide, gradually sloping, and thick with the area’s justifiably famed sugar-sand. Fort Myers Beach has accommodations in all price ranges and lots to do. You can go parasailing or on a dolphin eco-tour via wave runner, or on a fishing charter.
