When the sun sparkles brightly on the water and waves lightly brush the shore, it's hard to ignore the call to get outdoors and enjoy another beautiful day in Fort Myers Beach. With an abundance of outdoor activities sometimes it's hard to decide where to begin. Start your day with a stroll on the beach, admiring the scenery and soaking up the atmosphere or wander through the charming seaside town and stop for a quick coffee. After charging your batteries pick from one of these fabulous outdoor activities that make Fort Myers Beach such an exhilarating place to live.

Enjoy a Day at Beach

Bowditch Point Park is a peaceful location that encompasses the entire tip of the island. The back bay area offers shaded picnic areas to enjoy an afternoon in a serene setting with a sweeping view of boats entering and exiting the bay. On the gulf side relax and sunbathe or get active and take a swim. Walking trails wind through a restoration area offering ample opportunity for bird watching with gorgeous views of the bay in the background.

Further south, enjoy a longer two-mile stretch of beach at Lovers Key State Park. As the name implies, the park is a romantic destination for beachside weddings, but its mango forests and white sand beaches are open for everyone to enjoy. With biking and hiking trails, paddling on a protected estuary, fishing, swimming, and shelling, your only problem will be deciding what to do first! If you are new to kayaking or stand up paddle boarding Lovers Key Adventures will take care of all the planning, and before you know it, you will be floating among the dolphins and manatees with a knowledgeable guide entertaining you with the history and lore of early Florida.

The park's extensive network of trails meanders through mangroves, salt marshes, and maritime hammocks, providing ample opportunities for birdwatching, hiking, and photography. Kayakers and canoeists can paddle through the serene waters of the bay, encountering dolphins, manatees, and an array of bird species. Whether you are seeking a peaceful retreat into nature or an active day of exploration, Estero Bay Preserve State Park promises a memorable outdoor experience.
