Once in a lifetime, and only if you’re lucky, will you find a place to vacation that you will never forget. A place that has it all and where the people are as warm as the weather…A place for family and a place you’ll want to return to year after year. This is a description of Estero Island. a.k.a. Fort Myers Beach – “The Family Island”, home to the world’s safest beach. This is a place for Grandmas and Grandpas, Moms and Dads, sisters and brothers, friends and lovers. Fishing, water sports, shopping, exploring, people watching, and just “beaching it” are our main activities, along with Casino boats and plenty of spots to listen and dance to island music.
Our history is full of legends of pirates and treasure and the likes of Calico Jack, who made Estero Bay his domain. You might even find a doubloon on the beach! You’ll definitely find a sand dollar or two! Visit our island & experience a sunset many only see in a photograph; where the sand is warm and where a gentle Gulf breeze will soothe you to your very soul.
