Is the Fort Myer's - Sanibel area a good place to vacation to?

About the Fort Myer's Beach Area 

Fort Myers, Florida is a tropical destination that serves as a gateway to Southwest Florida, making it a very popular tourist spot along the beautiful Gulf Coast

The city's name originated as a tribute to Colonel Abraham Myers. Well-known for its shopping, golfing, and glorious sandy beaches.  It is part of the Cape Coral-Fort Myers, area of Florida including the Sanibel and Captiva Islands.

What cities are found in the Fort Myer's Beach area?

Cities of the Fort Myer's Beach Area of Florida

Fort Myers

Fort Myers Beach epitomizes the full Florida experience and is home to a population of approximately 7,000 people.  Fort Myers Beach additionally has close access to Cape Coral, Sanibel & Captiva. It is important to note that the city of Fort Myers (city center) is approximately 15 miles from Fort Myers Beach (town), but is along the Caloosahatchee River, which provides great beaches, fishing, and a quaint, historic river district.

Cape Coral

Cape Coral is great for those who love the water, with its many lakes, over 400 canals (more than Venice!), and location on the massive Caloosahatchee River. Perfect for canoeing, kayaking, swimming, and experiencing the wildlife of Florida. Cape Coral is also home to the large and tropical 15-acre water park, Sun Splash Family Water Park, which is fantastic for families. Spend some more tranquil time down at the Cape Coral Yacht and Racquet Club, which has great views of the water with picnic benches and a pier, a small clean public beach, and a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Staying in Cape Coral can be a great alternative to the larger beaches in Fort Myers.


Sanibel is the larger and more southern of the two connected islands. Sanibel is acclaimed as having the best shelling beaches in North America. Along the white sandy beaches, over 400 different species of shells can be discovered, with conch shells being the most common. Approximately half of the island is occupied by the JN Darling (Ding) National Wildlife Refuge, one of Florida's most exquisite refuges, which provides a great destination for kayaking, canoeing, and walking or biking along the 100-acre trails. Sanibel is perfect for those who love to be outdoors, with its 15 miles of beaches and 22 miles of bike paths.


Captiva is the smaller of the two islands, giving it a serene ambiance. A truly get-away-from-it-all experience, the island is a great place to relax and enjoy the pristine blue waters, while only being a short drive away from all the activities on Sanibel. Captiva is slightly more upscale and expensive than Sanibel as a result of its smaller size. Both of these islands have excellent fishing and chartered boats.
