Parking at Fort Myers Beach
Short Term Parking
Short term parking, or metered parking, is located on Old San Carlos Blvd., Estero Blvd., Center St., and Fifth St.
These metered spaces have a two-hour time limit and cost $2 per hour.
Meters are monitored 9:00 am - 9:00 pm, seven days a week. B.A.S.E. personnel look for expired time limits, overtime parking, and parking violations (i.e. parking in the wrong direction).
Long Term Parking
Long Term parking is available on all beach access streets and in the lot under the Matanzas Pass Bridge. The cost is $2 per hour, and there is no time limit.
The Town of Fort Myers Beach has recently implemented 9 new pay stations at the following locations: Newton Park, Connecticut Street Beach Access, Palm avenue Beach Access, Old San Carlos and under Matanzas Pass Bridge. These new pay-by-space pay stations allow visitors to park, take note of what parking space they are in, pay at the pay station and go directly to the beach without returning to display their ticket in their car. Soon the Town will introduce an app for smartphone users to add more time to their space directly from their phone! Check back at a later date for when the app will be introduced!
