Heaped with sugar-sand, Fort Myers Beach 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. It has accommodations in all price ranges and lots to do. You can go parasailing or on a dolphin eco-tour via waverunner, or on a fishing charter. Special bonus: Just off the coast and easy to reach are the islands of Sanibel and Captiva.
