The only state to score higher than Florida was California.

Take flight with on a parasail, race through the water on a jet ski, or ride alongside dolphins on a dolphin cruise. Seeking a more mellow mood? Tee off at several local mini golf courses, tour the historic Mound House, or go for a sunset stroll on the legendary Fort Myers Beach Pier.

Our motto has always been “Where the Fun Never Ends,” and we mean it. Two pools, a waterfall, the on-site World Famous Tiki Bar, comfortable accommodations, and a location that keeps guests close to Fort Myers Beach’s shopping, entertainment, and nightlife district– If you’re looking for fun, you’ve found it.
