Try Water Sports in Fort Myers Beach
Since the top attraction in town is the beach, it’s no surprise that water sports are popular here. And Coastal Vacation Properties partners with VayK Gear to offer our guests complimentary beach gear credit for watersport rentals like kayaks, paddle boards, boogie boards, and skimboards. In addition to our watersport rentals, you can find several other ways to explore the water:
- Good Time Charters is the best option for tours and cruises on the beach. Sign up for dolphin tours, sunset cruises, shelling trips, and fishing charters. Or fish on your own from the Fort Myers Fishing Pier.
- Wind & Water Sports offers the easiest way to explore the water with parasailing, jet ski rentals, and banana boat rides.
- Launch your kayak from Matanzas Pass Preserve and access the Great Calusa Blueway Paddling Trail.
Explore the Great Outdoors
Beyond the beaches, you will find two excellent parks where you can explore the natural beauty of Florida by land. Bowditch Point Park offers a 17-acre park on the Northern end of the island with hiking trails, picnic areas, butterfly gardens, and picnic shelters.
Lovers Key State Park offers one of the top things to do in Fort Myers Beach for nature lovers. This unspoiled 700-acre park provides a beautiful two-mile beach perfect for shelling, swimming, boating, fishing, and paddling. On land, you can bike, hike, view wildlife, set up a picnic, and stop at the Visitor Center. This center is where you can view exhibits highlighting the barrier islands, habitats, wildlife, and plants in the park.
After an exciting day exploring everything Fort Myers Beach offers, we recommend heading downtown to Times Square. This is the hub for shopping, restaurants, and entertainment in town. We recommend dining at Pierside Grill or Sunset Beach for dinner in Times Square. Both restaurants offer delicious fresh seafood, happy hour specials, and live entertainment. You can also attend the weekly Sunset Celebration at Times Square, where you can expect live music, food, and an overall good time!
