The hubs and I have started a new video series called “Our Top Five” – because, you know, our opinion matters. I kid, I kid.

But seriously, we want to share with you our favorite things about the islands, beaches and many other topics to help you plan for your next salty adventure.

To kick off the series, we decided to spotlight our own slice of coastal paradise – Fort Myers Beach, Florida.

Watch the video below to check out our top five beach bars on Fort Myers Beach.

We’ll help you find the best rum runners, views and entertainment on da beach.


Our Top 5 Beach Bars on Fort Myers Beach

5. The Sunset Beach Tropical Grill

The Sunset Beach Tropical Grill is located in the heart of Fort Myers Beach, right in the Times Square area. This beach bar and restaurant offers up amazing views of the Gulf of Mexico and the pier. I typically order the fish tacos and a cold Corona and watch the waves roll ashore. We encourage you to do the same!

4. The Lani Kai Beach Bar

As we mentioned in the video, no visit to Ft. Myers Beach is complete without a stop at the Lani Kai’s beach bar. This hotel is ground zero for fun in the sun and they serve up a rum runner that is probably too damn good! This beach offers up live music and lots of fun activities…especially during spring break!

3. The Outrigger Beach Bar

The Outrigger beach bar is located at the Outrigger Beach Resort, a resort located about mid-island. While it’s located at a resort, it’s still a local favorite. It’s small, but it’s lively! It’s located on the widest stretch of sand on Ft. Myers Beach and is a great place to watch the sunset.

2. The Salty Crab

We love the Salty Crab! It’s a super casual beach bar that has tables right on the sand. Food and drink seem to taste better when you have your toes in the sand! The Salty Crab has live entertainment, big cheap beers and lots of good beach bar food. Definitely stop in the next time you’re on Ft. Myers Beach.

1. The Cottage (Shucker’s)

The Cottage is a fantastic beach bar…well actually beach bars, plural. There’s 3 great beach bars in one here. There’s the salty and sand beach bar on the bottom floor where you’ll find corn hole, toes in the sand beach eats and lots of beach goers enjoying themselves. The upstairs you’ll find the newly renovated “Shucker’s” which has more of a sports bar type atmosphere. Then in the evening, make your way over to their 3rd bar, the deck bar, at least that’s what Ryan calls it. We love The Cottage and know you will too!
