Fort Myers Beach and The Islands

A slice of heaven in Southwest Florida

Welcome to Fort Myers Beach and The Islands

Fort Myers Beach is nestled on Estero Island, which is connected to the mainland by bridges. You can find family-friendly resorts, captivating cottages, Old Florida charm, and perhaps the best seafood in the area. The neighboring islands of Sanibel and Captiva also offer a little corner of paradise. Sandy white beaches, unmatched views, and a welcoming atmosphere attract many prospective residents.

Established only 35 years ago, Fort Myers Beach is a relatively new addition to Estero Island. However, the history of Estero Island stretches back more than 1,000 years. Sanibel and Captiva also have a long and winding history, dating back hundreds of years.

Living on Fort Myers Beach or The Islands means experiencing the epitome of the beach lifestyle. There are a number of architectural styles available, with Ranch-style homes and Old Florida-style bungalow homes being the most popular.
