Experience the Ideal Fort Myers Beach Vacation at Our Ft Myers Beach Resort
Fort Myers Beach is one of Florida’s favorite vacation destinations offering pristine white sand, calm Gulf Coast waters and rich cultural opportunities. And right in the middle of it all is our Fort Myers Beach hotel, Sandpiper Gulf Resort.
Fort Myers Beach is a tiny island only seven miles long and in no place as much as a mile wide. In fact, it’s quite possible to walk the entire island! Yet this charming paradise offers families and romance- seekers an escape filled with fun and exciting activities.
Just steps away from your Fort Myers Beach suite, are beaches widely recognized among the safest in Florida, thanks to shallow tropical waters free from undertows. The sand is as soft as it gets. Don’t be surprised to see pods of dolphin frolicking in the waters just offshore. And you may witness some of the most breathtaking sunsets on earth from our Fort Myers Beach Hotel.
In many ways visiting Fort Myers Beach is like stepping back in time to a period when pirates roamed the seas, legendary explorers like Ponce de Leon sailed the waters, and Caloosa Indians hunted right on the beach. There is still plenty of evidence from these days for you to enjoy today.
Discover Fort Myers Beach History just Minutes from our Fort Myers Beach Hotel.
Just a short distance from our Sandpiper Gulf Resort, you may visit Mound House, the site of a 2000-year-old Caloosa Indian Shell Mound. Step back in time at Newton Park, featuring the historic estate of Jim and Ellie Newton, where friends such as Thomas Edison and Charles Lindbergh used to visit. Or perhaps search the sands for buried treasure. Legend has it that a swashbuckling pirate named Black Augustus may still have some loot hidden along the shores!
