[ARCHIVED] Tips for parking in Fort Myers Beach

text the word parking to 239-fmbeach

If you are planning on visiting the Downtown District - Times Square, Pier, Bayside Park - or the Beach, keep in mind that the Town has several hundred public spaces in those areas and nearby, Lee County operates some spaces and a park and ride, and there are commercial lots. 

Other tips:

  • Consider enjoying the beach from a public access point that you have not been to before. Spread along Estero Boulevard are 26 public beach accesses - many with paid parking - for five or so miles from the Matanzas Pass Bridge on the north end of Town toward the Big Carlos Pass Bridge on the south end of Town. Look for the beach access signs hanging from poles at each entrance. 
  • Text PARKING to 239-FMBeach (239-362-3224) for more information about parking and to find out the percentage of spaces that are currently available. 
  • The Town's Beach and Street Enforcement (BASE) Team is monitoring the Town's spaces at 11 a.m., 2 p.m., and 5 p.m. daily and posting the percentage of spaces that are available here.
  • Parking in the right of way or on private property (unless it is a designated parking area) is not permitted.  
  • Visit the parking page on this website.
  • Pay for parking in Town spaces by downloading the Passport parking app.
  • Park at the Lee County park and ride lot on Pine Ridge Road and ride the Trolley.
  • Newton Beach Park at 2650 Estero Boulevard (mid Island) is a great place to spend a day at the Beach! The park has a spectacular beach with nearby restrooms and showers, Tiki Huts, picnic tables, and an accessible ramp.
  • Town Hall at 2525 Estero Boulevard now has paid parking spaces after business hours and on the weekends with a couple of beach accesses within easy walking distance.
  • Before you head out, check the Town's traffic cams located at Town Hall and near the middle of Estero Island to see how things are moving.
