When it comes to beach photography in and around the Fort Myers area, there’s no shortage of options. From senior pictures to engagement photos and everything in between, the beach is often the perfect setting.
With so many choices, it can be a challenge to find the right location. But once you’re familiar with the area and what it has to offer, it won’t be long before you’re setting up shop and getting ready for an experience you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
Over the years, we have taken beach shots all over Fort Myers, but here are some top spots:
- Cayo Costa State Park: With more than nine miles of beach, there’s an abundance of settings to choose from. Add in the sheer beauty of the surroundings, and you can spend hours on end here without ever taking the same shot twice.
- Blind Pass Beach: Some people call it Blind Pass, others call it Middle Beach, but regardless, you can expect top notch scenery to make your photos special. With roughly 3,000 feet of beach frontage, it takes some exploring to find the perfect spot – but that’s part of the fun. When you’re done at the beach, you can hike the trail through the mangrove forest for more photo opportunities.
- Bowman’s Beach: In addition to being one of the most well-kept beaches in the area, Bowman’s Beach has a surprisingly private setting. This provides the perfect opportunity to get some great photos, without distractions. Tip: this area is known as one of the best places to watch the sun rise and set, so you may want to setup your shoot for one of these times.
