Pink Shell Beach Resort on Ft Myers Beach!

Ft Myers is not a new destination for me. I have an aunt and uncle who live there, and we’ve been visiting for over 20 years. I’ve taken my children, met up with my cousins, and spent many days hanging out with family. I had never stayed on the beach, though, and this time I decided I wanted to get the feel of Ft Myers as a vacation destination. Pink Shell Beach Resort was my choice, and I will definitely be going back! Staying on the beach makes all the difference!

Our room was in the main building, and it was more suite or apartment than room. It came with a fully equipped kitchen, incredible views, and comfortable surroundings. Settling in took a few moments, then we headed to the beach! The sand is soft, almost like flour, with a huge vista and plenty of walking space. My relatives in Ft Myers are elderly now, and rarely get out, but we made sure they enjoyed time at the Pink Shell Resort. The ocean and fresh air do wonders for us all. I did not have enough time to fully enjoy the amenities…I wanted to eat at Jacks, a farm to fork restaurant, and I missed a nice visit to the spa. Next time!

The Pink Shell has resident Ospreys and Falcons. They even have an Osprey Cam! Check it out and enjoy watching these Ospreys!

Please enjoy a trip to Ft Myers via these photographs, and Pink Shell Beach Resort, I will be staying with you again! Count on it!

From the pool, a bridge walk takes you right onto the beach.

The beach is beautiful, the sand is soft, and it was an excellent walking beach. We even did a yoga class on the beach! Just perfect!

The beach service has kayaks, paddle boards and wave runners. I kayaked while my cousin Lisa paddleboarded.

There were a few pools, this one at the main building was lovely with a waterfall that separated the kiddie pool area from the more adult area. Plenty of back and forth, though!

We brought our uncle and aunties with us to Bongos, the poolside restaurant and bar.

Patio seating and a covered area. The food is delicious and the view is fabulous.

I discovered this little guy on one of my walks. This little crab was smaller than my pinkie nail!

  1. It looks like a lovely resort. I used to do a lot of business in Ft. Myers.

      Really? As I said, I’ve never been particularly fond of it, but staying at the Pink Shell Resort certainly changed my attitude! Love it now!

  2. Florida is fun. I love the kitschiness of it and all the pastel colors. And, of course, the water. Makes me want to go back.
