The party on Fort Myers Beach changes with the seasons. While it is almost always warm here, Fort Myers Beach does have its ‘seasons.’ They just look different from most of the rest of the world. The seasons here revolve around the tourists and so does the nightlife.
The nightlife here is casual. Although people dress fresh for the evening hours, there is generally no requirement for stilettos or even collared shirts. Take for instance the Lani Kai Island Resort, party headquarters on Fort Myers Beach. It’s not fancy, always sandy and always great for people watching.
The neighboring Cottage at the GUlfshore Grill is found on a second story deck, has a lot less grit, great live music and still offers a view of the beach, as well as the shenanigans at the Lani Kai.
Doc Ford's Rum Bar and Grille also has a waterfront view, of the Estero Bay. Resembling a giant beach house, this two story bar and grill has several bars, a stage and a large outdoor dance floor.
As this is being published, more restaurants and bars are being built and renovated to offer even more options for beach loving, nighttime partygoers. In the meantime, check out these 10Best spots.
