Fort Myers Beach

Sunshine Beach along the Gulf of Mexico features peaceful waters and white quartz sands.

 

Welcome to Fort Myers Beach

 

Fort Myers Beach sits on a little barrier island, about seven miles long. The beach is fabulous - wide, gradually sloping, and thick with the area’s justifiably famed sand.

Fort Myers Beach, a seaside city known for its lifestyle-driven culture, Tiki bars, restaurants, and hotels, is one of the most unique neighborhoods in Southwest Florida. The Town of Fort Myers Beach was incorporated in 1995, but the history of Estero Island spans back over 2,000 years when the Calusa Indians constructed shell mounds along the bayside of our island. This coastal beach town has since transformed into a popular destination for visitors eager to engage in watersports such as parasailing and kayaking – or just as eager to simply relax on the inviting beach. Today, more than an island playground, Fort Myers Beach dawns an exceptional portfolio of single beach homes, condominiums, and estates that continue to multiply. Showing no signs of slowing down, Fort Myers Beach is the perfect place to visit and live.

 

Exceptional Real Estate in Fort Myers Beach

 

Nowhere is more persuasive to live on the water than Fort Myers Beach. Outside of its pristine climate and gulf-side landscape, a hotbed of beach homes, and condominiums offers Fort Myers Beach residents the ultimate reason to love living by the beach. Sitting between the Gulf of Mexico and Estero Bay, Fort Myers Beach represents the apex of what it means to live waterside, whether it be a signature condominium or a single-family home. Fort Myers Beach presents buyers with a diverse landscape of properties for sale. In counterpoint, the new construction of aesthetically ambitious hotels, single-family homes, and condominiums continues to multiply across the horizon.
