If our white sand is an untouched canvas, our scenery is a painter’s palette – generously filled with sunset reds, pinks, oranges and purples on top of Gulf blues and shoreline greens.

And, much like a painting, The Beaches of Fort Myers & Sanibel offer views so romantic – you’ll hardly believe they’re real. But perhaps these 10 images will convince you that seaside passion awaits in places that really exist.


The Fort Myers Beach Pier

Before dinner and drinks on Fort Myers Beach, make a stop at the pier and take in the spectacular sunset. You can even enjoy dinner at one of the beachfront restaurants and have a front row seat to the show.


Sanibel Island Beaches

You’ll feel like the only couple on the island, surrounded by lush foliage and white sands, you can get lost together in its laid-back atmosphere. Make sure to make a stop at the lighthouse for a picture-perfect view.

Boca Grande

With some areas only accessible by boat, Boca Grande is filled with Old Florida beauty – like this old shipping pier. For another romantic spot, head to Banyan Street and take a walk down this tree-lined road. You won't be disappointed. 


Bonita Beach

The truth is truly in the name when it comes to “Pretty” Beach, where tranquil evenings are framed by coconut palms and sugar sands.

Privacy in North Captiva

Accessible only by ferry, private boat or small plane, this island is about as secluded as it gets.

Cabbage Key Lookout Tower

Here, you won’t find cars or paved roads, but you will undoubtedly find secluded romance in a historic cottage or Inn. Enjoy island eats and drinks at the Cabbage Key Restaurant and be sure to climb the lookout tower to get a panoramic view of the island.

Barefoot on Captiva

With sand this soft, you can’t help but kick off your shoes. And leave them off all weekend long.

Lovers Key

This State park is a haven for bottlenose dolphins, bald eagles and romantics seeking a peaceful place to unwind. Beautiful beaches, hiking & biking trails, and water activities provide endless opportunities to spend quality time with one another.
