About The Pink Shell Beach Resort
The four-star family-friendly Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina sits nestled in a stunning environment at the tip of Estero Island on Fort Myers Beach. When you check-in for your Florida sailing lessons you are greeted by an ambassador who shows you around the resort and takes you to your room. You also receive two welcome drinks and two tickets per day for the resort’s breakfast buffet. Everything you ever wanted to do on the water is available at Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina. On the beach are many water toys to rent. You can fish off the marina docks or rent small powerboats and go further out to fish or
explore. You can also go para-sailing and get a bird’s eye view of Estero Island and beyond.

Incredible Sunsets, So Much to Do
After sailing enjoy cocktails on your private lanai and watch the sunset over the vast shores of the Gulf of Mexico. You might even see the Green Flash if conditions are just right! When you are not sailing, take advantage of all the beach toys and excursions available. Walk or take the trolley into town for fun shopping and dining. The famed Edison-Ford Estates are a 20 minute drive from the resort. A little further past the Estates is trendy downtown Ft. Myers right on the Caloosahatchee River where you can see award-winning plays at the Florida Repertory Theatre, dine at many great restaurants and stoll along the river. Want to see a Broadway show? Two great theaters – the Broadway Palm Dinner Theater and Barbara B. Mann Theater – are only 20 minutes from the resort offering top Broadway productions.
