Soak in the sun, scope out the sites, and tackle some new outdoor challenges with these five romantic and inspiring Fort Myers Beach things to do:
Dinner in the Sand
Treat yourselves to an anniversary dinner by the sand – or on it – on your next romantic holiday. There are quite a few restaurants on the coast of Fort Myers Beach, including Parrot Key Caribbean Grill (2500 Main St, Fort Myers Beach), where you can order by car or by boat at its small marina restaurant.
There’s also the casual laid-back Beach Pub (1668 I Street, Fort Myers Beach), which allows you to eat right on the sand in a fun and lively atmosphere. If you want a more romantic experience, walk across the beach to the quieter side of the beach after eating.
The Cottage Beach Bar (1250 Estero Blvd, Fort Myers Beach) has an upper deck area that is usually rather quiet, allowing you to witness the stunning sunset over the Gulf of Mexico from high up.
Explore the Waters on a Sailboat
Few things are as romantic as a sailboat journey on the gulf. Fantasea Sailing, at 2500 Main St, Fort Myers Beach, provides you with the opportunity to sail the waters surrounding Fort Myers Beach as a couple on a sensational luxury sailboat.
