Set alongside the Gulf of Mexico on a bucolic barrier island, Fort Myers Beach offers mile after mile of white sand, palm trees, and shallow seas.

Consider trying some of the waterfront activities like kayaking, parasailing, and paddleboarding, with supplies available from local rental shops and vendors.
