Parking at Fort Myers Beach


As with any popular beach town, knowing your parking options ahead of time will help to make sure you have a great day at the beach! Fort Myers Beach parking is easy and once you know where to go, you’ll be all set.

Short term parking (metered parking) is located on Old San Carlos Blvd., Estero Blvd., Center St., and Fifth St. and 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.
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.

Pay Stations
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.

We’ve put together a helpful map to show you the various free and paid parking locations. There are other parking spots throughout the beach area but these are the main lots. All information is subject to change.
