Fort Myers Beach HotelsWhile Fort Myers Beach might be first and foremost known as a party resort, the 7 miles of sugar-white sands are more than big enough for visitors who aren't here to down beers or party hard. As well as the gorgeous sands and dazzling waters, there are plenty of restaurants to sample, the Times Square area for browsing and enjoying street performances, and the quieter, more urbane southerly area which provides a relief from the frantic activities in the party hub of the north.Things to seeOne of the most remarkable and charming of all the attractions in the region is the Lovers Key State Park. Its name comes from the days when it was hard to reach – the legend being that only lovers would bother making the trip by boat in search of some solitude. These days it's a place teeming with incredible wildlife and is a must for any fans of nature, thanks to its population of bottlenose dolphins, manatees, bald eagles, and all manner of other birds and creatures. It's not just the wildlife that'll wow you, though, with kayak tours and bike rentals available, and plenty of opportunities to practice your front crawl or top up your tan. For a more historic trip, Mound House celebrates the ancient Calusa Indians, with a mound that's stood for centuries. This is a great way to discover the island's rich heritage.Hotels in
Fort Myers BeachThis region is a huge draw for sun-seekers and party lovers, not to mention those looking for a more relaxing break, and as a result there's a huge range of accommodation to choose from. Hotels in Fort Myers Beach come in all shapes and sizes, and if you're looking for pampering and luxury you'll be able to find it. Some of the very top-end hotels will offer tennis courts, health clubs, outdoor pools, cabanas for hire, and massage and beauty treatments on-site. The more budget and mid-range options are still attractive, however, with most offering complimentary WiFi, flat-screen televisions, and microwaves as standard. Where to stayStaying in Fort Myers can be a tale of two halves, and if you opt to spend your time in the north you'll soon see that, especially during peak Spring Break season, it's an absolute party central with the Times Square section particularly crammed with people hawking ice-cold drinks and trying to convince you to buy a t-shirt or some fast food, often of the seafood variety. It's also a place of street entertainment, loud music, and lots of energy. For a more relaxed approach to holidaymaking, the much more laidback and more family-friendly south has plenty of places to eat in peace, and lots of accommodation options including beachfront condos. How to get to Fort Myers BeachThe most popular way into Fort Myers is via Southwest Florida International Airport which handles a whole host of internal flights from a vast range of major US cities, as well as some international flights. Some Fort Myers Beach hotels will offer shuttles, but there are a range of taxis available as well as plenty of rental car options if you're looking to explore the wider region.
