From its "dock" on Fort Myers Beach, Mariner's Boathouse & Beach Resort beckons sun seekers who want all the pleasures of a vacation cruise without ever leaving land. Come enjoy the beach, swimming pool, and whirlpool. A game room and playground are on site for adults and children. The resort features a full-time activities director with a program designed for your enjoyment. A public 18-hole golf course is located directly across the street. The island offers four public tennis courts, boat launching ramps, and a wide range of party fishing boats and deep-sea charters. Fine restaurants, shopping, live entertainment, and a variety of attractions are just a short drive away.
Another beautiful resort in the local area is the Island Towers Resort. Sun and relaxation are plentiful at Island Towers, a beachfront resort on Estero Island. Stroll down the beach or choose from a treasure chest of activities-ride a sailboard, go snorkeling or fishing, or buy fresh shrimp on the docks in the area. Swim in the heated pool or take a bicycle ride. Then watch from your balcony as the Gulf sunset kicks off a great evening. Both Fort Myers and Naples are within 20 miles, providing additional recreational choices. Be sure to visit Thomas Edison's winter home, the Everglades Jungle Cruise, and Jungle Larry's African Safari Park.
