Open since 1953, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina woos guests with its unobstructed ocean views, complimentary beach amenities and friendly staff. But the star attraction of this property is its location: Spread out across 12 acres in Fort Myers Beach, the resort boasts 1,500 feet of pristine white-sand beach, with the Gulf of Mexico on one side and Matanzas Pass on the other. Plus, the resort sits less than a mile from Fort Myers Beach's Times Square shopping hub. For those looking to take advantage of Florida's year-round sunshine, Pink Shell offers a variety of on-site amenities, including three heated pools, parasailing and nonmotorized water sports equipment rentals. When you're seeking cover from Florida's intense rays, head inside and indulge in a warm stone massage or a sugar scrub from the Aquagene Spa. A meal at one of the property's two restaurants is also a must. Once you're ready for a little R&R, retreat to one of the resort's 211 villas. Each features a flat-screen TV, a coffee maker, a kitchenette or kitchen and an enclosed lanai. Note: The Pink Shell charges a $35 daily resort fee that covers in-room Wi-Fi access, two drinks at Bongo's on arrival day and daily beach chair and umbrella rentals.

For a family-oriented stay, book the Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina, which recently widened its beach and is currently expanding its marina. New onsite restaurant Jack's serves a daily breakfast buffet with Gulf of Mexico views.



Located on 12 acres on the Gulf of Mexico, this expansive resort offers rooms in three high-rise buildings, each with a swimming pool. The main pool has a fun nautical theme with a waterfall feature.


Bowditch Point Park nature preserve is just next door, and the city's own bustling Times Square is a 15-minute walk from the hotel. Breakfast is free, and the beach restaurant and bar are major highlights as well.
