Fort Myers Travel Guide

  • Life in the slow lane in Fort Myers

    The turquoise of the sea. The pristine white of the sand. The lush green of the mangroves. The rainbow colours of the main street facades. Nestled along the west coast of Florida, Fort Myers is as much a hot spot for families as for devoted beach bums. This is where you’ll find deserted beaches and the soft lapping of the Gulf of Mexico. It’s where time begs to stand still. And where you’ll happily let it.

Explore Fort Myers

 
  • A beach a day

    With more than 80 kilometres of uninterrupted beach, Fort Myers rivals any Florida coastal city. Travelling with kids? Go seashell hunting on Sanibel Island, compete in the sandcastle-building championships at Fort Myers Beach or discover the mangroves of Pine Island. Then stop at the iconic Estero Island pier for that sunset selfie.

  • Florida’s true nature

    There’s so much to see in Fort Myers. From friendly and quirky manatees at Manatee Park to alligators, turtles and otters at the wetlands of Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve. Or drive about two hours to the famous Everglades National Park, one of America’s great natural wonders, to try and catch a glimpse of the endangered Florida panther.

  • Cultural heritage

    Once a vacation hot spot for Americans fleeing the New England winters, Fort Myers was the second home of many famous figures. World-renowned inventors Thomas Edison and Henry Ford were two of them. Today you can visit their winter estates—dating from the late 19th century—tour their magnificent gardens and discover the incredible legacy they left behind.
