Spring is a fabulous time to visit beautiful Fort Myers Beach! The average temperature hangs around 85 degrees during the Spring. Similarly, the water temperature averages about 75 degrees during the Spring. Escape the lingering winter weather at home and jet to a relaxing, warm beach vacation.
In other words, the water is so warm you can spend your vacation lounging on the sugar sand beach underneath the sun as waves from the Gulf lap at the shore. Most importantly, no one will judge you if that is all you did during your vacation. Winter can be a challenging time of year, and you deserve rest and relaxation.
If you’re interested in expanding your vacation to include fun activities, below you will find an array of Spring events taking place in March, April, and May.
