This is the third installment of “Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach: A Renter’s Guide To the Islands”, which can be downloaded for FREE from our eBook library.

The North end of Estero Island is a very popular destination for those visiting Fort Myers Beach. It is home to what is commonly referred to as Times Square (though without the neon lights, skyscrapers, or huge, bustling crowds).

However, Times Square is considered the heart of Estero Island’s downtown. It is full of shops and restaurants. It features outdoor dining, street performers, restaurants and bars with live entertainment, and plenty of beautiful spots to just sit down and relax.

This area also boasts the Fort Myers Beach Sunset and Fishing Pier, the best place to watch the Gulf Coast’s astounding sunsets!

Southwest Florida is a region located along Florida’s Gulf coast, extending from south of the Tampa Bay area, west of Lake Okeechobee and mostly north of the Everglades.

Southwest Florida generally refers to the coastal geographic areas including the counties of Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Sarasota, and Manatee.

The area is world famous for its outlying barrier islands and the beautiful Gulf beaches, which lure millions of tourists to the shorelines each year. Some of these beautiful beaches include the world renowned Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach.

The beaches of Southwest Florida are some of the finest in all of Florida. This is because of their fine, white, sugar sand, gradual slopes, and gentle surf, making them some of the safest beaches in the world, and an ideal location for fun in the sun.
