Estero Island And Fort Myers Beach
Estero Island is one of the best vacation spots in Florida, boasting the white sands of Fort Myers Beach and the beautiful aqua blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The seven miles of beach attracts thousands of visitors from Germany, France, the UK and the USA each year, but this tropical Island still maintains a cheerful relaxed atmosphere that other more commercialised beach strips on the west coast have lost. Fort Myers beach has a reputation as one of the world's safest beach because of no undertow and shallow water; It's ideal for family bathing, swimming, sun bathing, surf fishing, shelling and the the full seven miles can be walked along the shore line. There are many fabulous restaurants serving fresh seafood from the Gulf of Mexico. Fishing, boating, sailing and a whole range of other watersports as well as the spectacular Lovers Key State Park make this a beach vacation paradise.
Square area, at the northern end of Estero Island, is considered the
of downtown (if you can consider the lively beach village as
'town'!). Full of shops and restaurants, the Times Square area features
outdoor dining, street performers and plenty of places to sit down
and relax. Nearby the island's 560 foot Fishing Pier and a palm tree
lined walkway provide a perfect spot to watch the famous sunsets. In
the evenings and weekends, live music draws fun loving crowds.
There is a good bus service with pick up and drop off locations throughout the Island.
