  • White beaches until sunset

    The beaches of Fort Myers provide spectacular enjoyment for swimmers and sunbathers: snow-white sandy shores, pleasantly warm turquoise waters, and blissfully warming sunshine all year round. Take a lengthy stroll through the town of Fort Myers Beach, which stretches for miles on the Gulf of Mexico, and marvel at the varied surroundings. You’ll find bars, restaurants, boutiques, live music, and water sports activities at Times Square and on the pier. Further away from town, you can enjoy the relaxing tranquility of virtually pristine sections of beach. The gently sloping shore at Fort Myers Beach provides a perfect day at the seaside, especially for families with small children. You should also see out the day on the beach: Fort Myers’ southwest-facing location offers you a stunning backdrop at sunset.

    The American way of life

    As sand is part of the beach, so shopping is part of America’s DNA. Americans love to shop, and the city of Fort Myers offers you almost endless opportunities to share the experience. At the Miromar Outlets open-air shopping mall, you’ll find around 140 stores selling international brands. Sanibel Outlets is another outlet center in the immediate vicinity of Fort Myers. Traditional covered shopping malls, such as the Gulf Coast Town Center and the Edison Mall, are enjoyable places to visit, even on one of the few rainy days. You’ll also encounter the Americans’ love of sport almost everywhere in Fort Myers, especially in spring. Traditionally, the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins, both Major League Baseball teams, complete their spring training in the city, including playing numerous test games against other professional teams. If you want to be active yourself, you’ll always find a little piece of green to swing the iron on the 130 golf courses in Fort Myers.

    Sanibel Island

    Sanibel Island lies directly off the Fort Myers coast and, thanks to the stiff breeze at Lighthouse Beach, offers outstanding conditions for a variety of water and wind sports. A much calmer pastime is “shelling”—the traditional collection of shells. The island has the largest abundance of seashells in the United States. You can learn all about the more than 400 different types in the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum. An absolute highlight is twilight, when the sunset transforms the Gulf of Mexico into a fascinating sea of colors.
  • Off into the wilderness

    From marshlands to mangrove forests—the UNESCO World Heritage Site has a unique fauna and is unsurpassed in its biodiversity. You should definitely plan a day trip to the Everglades during your stay in southwest Florida. The largest subtropical wilderness area in the USA spans two million acres and extends from Lake Okeechobee in the north to the southernmost tip of the Florida Peninsula. The tropical climate is home to a unique variety of species: alligators, manatees, sea turtles, dolphins, and stingrays. Explore the legendary swamps in a kayak or airboat, on your own on one of the many hiking trails or discover the mangroves along the coast on a boat tour.
  • Take a stroll along Naples Pier

    Erected in 1888, Naples Pier extends about 300 meters (1,000 ft) into the Gulf of Mexico and once played an important role in the settlement and development of the city. In those days, Naples could only be accessed by water—the pier was therefore the most important access point at that time. Today the complex is a popular destination close to Fort Myers. Here vacationers can watch anglers at work and enjoy a fantastic sunset.

    With more than 30 miles of soft, white-sand beaches, visitors to Florida’s Paradise Coast enjoy the fun of a lively beach scene or that perfect secluded spot. North of Naples, beach access at Clam Pass Park is ideal for family beach days or paddling in the calm waters of this 35-acre coastal habitat and preserve. Visitors experience unspoiled beaches, surf fishing, shelling, picnicking and even scuba diving along the natural hard-bottom reef of Delnor Wiggins Pass State Park.

  • Marco Island beach
