Beautiful Beaches. Blueway Trail. Bounty of the Sea.

Fort Meyers is surrounded by both salt and freshwater. The beaches, natural surroundings, and history are prime reasons visitors flock to Fort Meyers. Collect seashells from the white sand beaches, kayak the Calusa Blueway Trail, take a stroll through the brick-paved streets of the downtown River District, visit the Edison and Ford winter estates, pick through the many boutiques and when hunger strikes, sit down for a bite at one of the many restaurants and bars.

If it's the bounty from the sea that tickles your fancy, Southwest Florida's coastline has hundreds of islands and thousands of miles of shoreline providing rich seagrass beds that attract all types of saltwater fish. Options abound around Fort Myers, Captiva and Sanibel Islands for all types of fishing. Tarpon, grouper and other game fish love the sheltered temperate waters and catches of snapper and redfish are common.
