For several years now we’ve done our best to inform you about vacation rentals, local events, and attractions here in Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach so that you could plan a vacation of a lifetime.
We could tell you how beautiful this area is until we are blue in the face. But until you actually come here and experience the beaches and all that Southwest Florida has to offer, you’ll never truly appreciate it.
So we decided to reach out to you, our guests, and we asked you to share your Fort Myers Beach/Bonita Beach experience with us and others….and the feedback has been awesome!
Two weeks ago, Linda Trummer shared her Fort Myers Beach experience and we were blown away by how much time and effort she spent in assembling all of her photos and the accompanying story. It’s a MUST READ!
Today, Hanne Kleven Eek is going to share with us her experience this past summer. Keep in mind that it is currently snowing in Norway (where she is from) as she shares her love for “her beach.”
Welcome to Fort Myers Beach! -Hanne
Paradise on Earth
I am a bit reluctant to tell how much I love the Beach – I want it all to my self!
But then again, how can I not share my love for this Paradise on earth? Sure there are several pretty places in Florida more posh, more glamorous, more stylish than Fort Myers Beach (FMB), but once you’ve been here – it’s impossible not to come back. It’s like a rag doll; you’ll love her all your life….
We came to FMB for the first time in 1998. Our boys were 10 and 8 – perfect team park-age! We did Disney World from A to Z that year and the years to follow. But every time we came home to Sandarac. And it really felt like home.
We’ve been coming every second year since then, and there’s nowhere we’d rather go. Friends tell us wonderful stories about Sarasota, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, but we have no urge to explore. We have found our spot.
You’re Going to LOVE the Sunsets!
The relaxed pace of the island – especially on the south part, is so valuable to us. We live a very busy everyday life and coming to FMB makes us better people. We can do absolutely nothing, which to us is the meaning of fortune in this material world we live and are a part of! I cannot count how many pictures I have of the FMB sunset, and there will be several more. The view from the condo is ever changing and that is so fascinating.

My ultimate favorite picture of MY beach :-)
This summer we stayed all alone in FMB, but we loved every second of the five, wonderful weeks! For the first time we had to use the storm shutters, which was an experience.
But about the weather – nothing bothers me less when at the beach. There will be showers, but eventually the sun will come out again and again! After so many years of coming here, I always pack far too much. I more or less live in my pair of jean shorts, t-shirt and flip-flops (bought from my favorite shoe shop at Santini).
Sure, we do some serious shopping, but mostly presents. We have all we need. Barnes & Noble is my “candy store”. I love to read, and during the vacation I can catch up with the past year’s new bestsellers! Preferably in my deck chair.
When the storm clouds roll in…
…it’s a good time to catch up on some reading!
