Editor’s Review of Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina

Ever since the Matanzas Pass Bridge opened in 1921 and connected Fort Myers Beach to the mainland, visitors have been coming in droves to the island's beautiful beaches. Packed with seafood restaurants, kitschy beach shops and the not-so-occasional tattoo parlor, the area is popular with traveling families and spring breakers alike. Word is definitely out about the shallow coastline and gentle waters, as much of the island is congested with traffic and crowds. The northernmost end of the beach seems to be an exception, with fewer tourist traps and Bowditch Point Regional Park, instead, taking up the majority of real estate. Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina has managed to snag a prime spot here, too, making it a great place to enjoy the ... more island while keeping a pleasant distance from the crowds. less

The resort offers a variety of accommodations with studios and one- and two-bedroom condos spread among five buildings. The studios can accommodate up to four people and provide a small kitchenette that's handy for preparing snacks and microwaveable items. The granite countertops throughout the studio are nice, but the two-burner cook top seems like more trouble than it's worth.

The one- and two-bedroom condos have separate living and dining areas, full kitchens and bathrooms with soaking tubs -- perfect for bathing sandy kids after a day on the beach. Many of the condos have in-unit washers and dryers (don't forget laundry detergent -- it's not provided) and some have sleeper sofas, too. Pack 'N Plays can be provided free of charge and rollaway beds are available for $20 per night.

The studios and condos are decorated in yellow and blue tropical patterns and have white wicker furniture that's comfy, but dated. What the rooms lack in modern furnishings, however, they more than make up for in the views they offer -- all 213 studios and condos face the beach with sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico.
