The Fort Myers Beach Fishing Pier
With seven miles of sand spanned across Fort Myers Beach, there’s plenty to do. Fishing, however, is perhaps one of the most popular activities across this coastline— and the Fort Myers Beach Pier is a great spot to do it. While you’d normally need a state fisher’s license to cast a line in any fresh or saltwater system in Florida, Lee County is an exception. Here, anyone can fish. Rent a rod and reel from the Pelicans Pitstop for only $10.
The pier extends 560 feet into the Gulf of Mexico, offering a view of the neighboring Sanibel Island. Park nearby or hop on a trolley to explore the surrounding shops and restaurants, and make a day out of your visit. There’s nearby showers, a playground, covered picnic areas and kiosks with information about the area to continue your adventures.
