Start exploring what makes Fort Myers the perfect place to recharge and reconnect.

Get Close to Nature

Wellness travellers will find peace and tranquility in parks and preserves throughout Fort Myers — Islands, Beaches and Neighborhoods. Six Mile Cypress Slough Preserve has a 1.5-kilometre boardwalk through intermingled wetland and upland ecosystems. The Great Calusa Blueway, a 305-kilometre marked paddling trail, meanders through mangrove forests and past historic sites.

Spot Native and Migratory Birds

Nature enthusiasts of all ages will find enriching insights at J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and birdwatchers especially will see a paradise. The park takes up one-third of Sanibel Island and is home to over 245 species of birds, including the area’s signature pink roseate spoonbill.

Warm Up on White-Sand Beaches

Visitors should spend at least one day visiting coastal islands like Cabbage Key, North Captiva and Boca Grande. Be sure to reserve a spot on one of several charters, arrange a private tour or rent a boat. Natural settings and secluded beaches will have you feeling like you’re worlds away.

Nourish the Body with Farm-to-Table Food

Endless sun and subtropical conditions lead to great bounties of produce in the Fort Myers area. Visit Buckingham Farms, a 35-hectare property growing and serving its own harvest where you can purchase honey, preserves and more of nature’s goodies to take home. Don’t forget the fresh seafood served at restaurants up and down the coast, including “pink gold” shrimp.

Retreat to a Historic Hotel

Book an overnight getaway to Shangri-La Springs, a historic hotel on 3.2 hectares of beautifully cultivated land in Bonita Springs. The property brings together all the necessary elements to improve your well-being, including an organic garden, farm-to-table restaurant and on-site spa.

Book a Rejuvenating Spa Treatment

A healthy dose of sunshine and warm Gulf waters are good for the soul. What’s even better? Visiting a world-class spa at either Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort and Spa or ’Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa. You can combine a dream vacation with some serious self-care. Book everything from relaxing massages and pressure therapy to good old-fashioned pampering.

Yes, it’s true. Wellness comes naturally throughout Fort Myers—Islands, Beaches And Neighborhoods.
