GullWing Beach Resort - Fort Myers Beach

Stay at GullWing Beach Resort in Fort Myers Beach, FL

Convenient Condo-Style Suites Between Beach and Bay

The varying bird species around Fort Myers Beach speak to the area's unique geography: white ibises, roseate spoonbills, and great blue herons make their habitat in the shallow waters around Estero Bay to the east, and seagulls swoop in flocks over the open waves on the Gulf of Mexico side. Fort Myers Beach resides on a narrow strip of land between these two bodies of water called Estero Island. Here, GullWing Beach Resort's high-rise building is positioned for panoramic views and easy access to both waterscapes, and its spacious suites feature homey conveniences.

An extended stretch of sugar-fine sand separates the oceanfront from all buildings on the island, leaving plenty of space to play beach volleyball or erect sand sculptures of failed presidential candidates. In addition to renting out covered cabanas, the hotel also loans a limited number of lounge chairs free of charge.

In each recently refurbished two- or three-bedroom suite, a sliding glass door leads to a private, screened-in balcony, where deck chairs overlook subtropical foliage and the bay or Estero Island. Inside, potted palms, patterned blue fabrics, and rattan and bamboo furniture contribute to a laid-back atmosphere. The kitchen area is fully stocked with plates, cutlery, and a dishwasher, and at a wooden deck downstairs with communal gas grills, guests can sear fish fillets or Gulf shrimp from nearby seafood markets beside grass-covered dunes and an open-air gazebo.

Fort Myers Beach, Florida: Island Beaches and Bay Wildlife

The town of Fort Myers Beach is perched on an elongated barrier island called Estero Island, and numerous other islands pepper the vast bay area. Just south of Estero Island is Lovers Key State Park; during tours of the park's estuaries, trained rangers regularly point out bottlenose dolphins, West Indian manatees, and sea turtles.

A little farther within Estero Bay resides Mound Key Archaeological State Park, which is reachable only by boat. Here, the islands themselves were formed over thousands of years from mounds of packed shells, pottery shards, and antique beepers deposited by Calusa Indians. To the northwest, the Sanibel Island Shelling Center glitters with a vast array of whorled conches and striped coquinas.
