I love sunsets. I especially love the sunset while standing on the beach with a nice beverage in hand and live music playing in the background. Lucky for us there are some great beach bars located right on Fort Myers Beach that provides the perfect setting for drinks, music and a sunset:

Junkanoo

Enjoy open air or covered seating on the beach over looking the Gulf of Mexico. THe menu offers something for everyone from seafood to pizza. 
3040 Estero Blvd - Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931

The Cottage 

A favorite Fort Myers Beach restaurant and bar for years, you will get a panoramic view of the Gulf while seated at this fun bar. Live music nightly and their kitchen even stays open until 1am, so you can try their famous beach bread before you head home for the night.

Cabanas Beach Bar & Grill

Located at Diamond Head Resort, you can grab a comfy chair, order some of their signature beach eats and relax to the sounds and views - island style!
2000 Estero Blvd - Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931

Pinchers

You can't beat their drink special: buy one get 1 all day every day. There are a number of Pinchers locations in SWFL but this one offers a great beach spot to enjoy their drinks and menu. 
6890 Estero Blvd - Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931


The Salty Crab Bar & Grill

Walk in right off the beach for some good quick food and enjoy the live music while sipping on one of their signature cocktails. 
1154 Estero Blvd - Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931


The Playmore Tiki Bar

There is a lot of history here, being the first and only public place for adults to socialize on Ft. Myers Beach when it opened in the 1950's. The specialty drink menu is great and live music is never disappointing as you watch the sunset behind the pier. 
1028 Estero Blvd - Fort Myers Beach, FL 33931

 

Did I leave out your favorite spot? Know of a great Happy Hour or Sunset Special? Add it to our calendar or email me the info: mandy@toti.com. We'll make sure residents and visitors don't miss the opportunity!
