On Land

A breath of fresh air.

To talk about land on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel is to talk about some of Florida's most natural habitats. The unmanicured coastlines, mangrove estuaries, pine forests and parks and preserves help flora and fauna thrive, and give us something breathtakingly beautiful to look at and play upon every single day.

Nature & Wildlife

Living with wildlife.

Experiencing nature and wildlife happens naturally everywhere on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. Anhinga and pelicans dive for fish just offshore. Osprey fly gracefully overhead, dolphins play in your boat's wake and manatee surface to say hello as you pass on your kayak. These and so many more brushes with nature are commonplace thanks to our dynamic mangrove estuaries, which rival rainforests as the most productive ecosystem on the planet. Your job is simply to enjoy and help protect it for future generations.

Parks & Preserves

Living with wildlife.

Because of the commitment made long ago to keep this area as natural as possible, vast tracks of land have been set-aside as park and preserve space. Put another way, we're very spoiled. At the top of the list of reasons why is J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge on Sanibel, one of the largest mangrove wildernesses in the country. Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve and Caloosahatchee Regional Park offer a variety of biomes to explore, and like dozens of other parks and preserves, charge very little for the opportunity.

Golf & Sports

A tee time is open somewhere.

Florida owns a reputation for great golf, and we'd like to think we're part of the reason. Since Donald Ross, one of America's most famous architects created Fort Myers Country Club over 90 years ago, others have followed with names like Arnold Palmer, Tom Fazio, Arthur Hills and Raymond Floyd. Not a bad foursome, by the way. Their work has won many accolades and gives us more golf holes per capita than just about anywhere, and therefore, more reasons to play.

Baseball & Spring Training

Play ball in a beautiful setting.

Like many other people, the boys of summer spend their spring on The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel. The Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins hold spring training at the new Bill Hammon Stadium and City of Palms Park respectively, and bring plenty of hardcore fans with them. For a more historical experience, Terry Park Ball Field is used by many college teams and is a favorite of baseball purists everywhere.

Biking and Hiking

Tour the Islands on Two Wheels.

Sidewalks, paths and bike lanes combine for the ideal way to view Lee County’s open-air scenery. Riders of all levels can saddle up and pedal nearly anywhere. Shared-use paths ramble throughout Sanibel offering a safe way to explore. Pine flatwoods and cypress swamps along the Caloosahatchee Regional Park trails
hide challenges for seasoned mountain bikers. The hard-packed sand of Fort Myers Beach invites gentle rides tracing the water’s edge at sunset. Reliably sunny and abundantly flat, Southwest Florida is prime country for bike riding.
