Beaches in southwestern-Florida

What's the most beautiful beach Southwest Florida? This is a question that could give rise to endless discussions. The truth is that every beach has its own appeal.


Beach and Pier of Naples, Florida

Naples has a seemingly endless fine white-sand beach that stretches behind stately mansions along the turquoise sea. With a great number of beach access points you can always find a quiet spot on the mostly deserted beach. The 300-meter long historic pier is worth a visit.

Bonita Beach

Bonita Beach, Florida

The white sands and the shells at Barefoot Beach invite you to take a walk and to relax. For those seeking a more lively diversion we recommend Doc's Beach House, where you can rent WaveRunners, Jet Skis, Hobie Cats and Aqua Cycles or take to the air for para-sailing. Or you can rent beach chairs and umbrellas for spending a comfortable day sunbathing and lounging at the beach. A drink at Doc's Beach House at sunset rounds off the day.

Fort Myers Beach

Fort Myers Beach, Florida

During the week, Fort Myers Beach is a rather cozy family beach, but becomes a party spot on weekends. On Sundays, Fort Myers Beach is teeming with boaters who seemingly gather to collectively celebrate the weekend. The beach seems overcrowded and music resounds from bars and pubs. It's the ultimate party haven!

Sanibel Island / Captiva Island

Sanibel Island / Captiva Island, Florida

If you like to unwind and enjoy shelling, these are the perfect beaches for you. With 400 species of shells that wash up against the islands' shores, the Barrier Islands Sanibel and Captiva, connected by a bridge, are a rarity. The compelling combination of beaches, exotic animals, lush vegetation and magnificent sunsets make Sanibel and Captiva Islands an unforgettable experience for visitors.

Englewood Beach/Manasota Beach

Englewood Beach/Manasota Beach

The beautifully landscaped beach access points with showers and locker rooms invite you to spend a relaxing day at the beach. The sparsely populated beach with its fine, white sand seems to stretch for miles to the north and south. After a quiet day of sunbathing, a romantic beach walk at sunset is a great way to end the day.


Venice, Florida

On windy days surfers gather at Venice Beach in search of the perfect wave. Watching them brave the waves is even more fun when you enjoy one of the tasty hot dogs at Anita's Sandcastle.
