    Action! This is the place. Restaurants and shops, along the way. The pier is a nice place to enjoy the Gulf of Mexico view or fish. But don't forget to obtain a fishing license if you decide to fish.

    This is a great beach and the Sand is extremely soft. There are many sand volleyball courts around the pier area that are great for playing. It is likely to be very crowded here. By walking down the beach a little ways down from the pier you will find more space. Parking is free if you park off the Island but once you are on the island parking will likely be around 10$ wherever you park.

    Fort Meyers Beach is on the Gulf of Mexico. It was my first time at any beach involving salt water and it was great. I visited this area during spring break time so the shops and beach were crowded with young college and hs students. This, although, did not take away from the beauty of the endless ocean/gulf and the beautiful sunset we witnessed on the beach. Only one complaint, I was not able to find the most sea shells although the day we went, it was very windy and the water wAs very choppy. This might have had something to do with it.

    Fort Myers beach is about 30 minutes from Dolphin House. It has an older area with smaller hotels that has a cool retro beach resort from the 60s feel. There are a lot of larger and taller condos (lots of time shares) in the newer southern part of the island. Beaches are the widest around, great family area.

    Also known as Times Square and is considered the heart of Estero Island's downtown. Full of shops and restaurants, featuring outdoor dining, street performers, and plenty of spots to sit down and relax. The area is adjacent to the Fort Myers Beach Pier, the best place to watch our outstanding sunsets.

    Take the trolley for 50 cents to the Public Beach and Pier. You will see some of the resident Pelicans who will actually pose for pictures and you can rent fishing poles and fish from the pier if you like. There are also many street performers who will entertain you for free and are just trilled if you give them a $1 tip.

    I would say it is geared more for the younger crowd. Nice beach and some shopping and places to eat.

    Newton State Park is located right across the street from the condo. There are restrooms, an outdoor shower, picnic tables and bocce courts. The beach is a spectacular place to catch some sun, watch dolphins frolic in the surf and watch the sunset. There are places along the beach where you can rent wave runners, boats or go parasailing.

    Talcum powder soft sand stretches all along the Gulf Coast continuously along the 7 mile west shore of the island. You can walk 5 houses down the street, across Estero Boulevard and you are there.

    The most crowded beach on the SW Coast is Ft Myers Beach. This is a spring break hang out. For quieter beaches or family beaches, see Cayo Costa, Sanibel, Captiva, Sanibel Causeway or Cape Coral Yacht Club
