Looking for the perfect Spring Break vacation that’s a good balance between adult and family activities? Well, look no further! Situated in Fort Myers Beach, Florida, on a picturesque island facing out to the Gulf of Mexico, Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina (Condé Nast Readers’ Choice Award Winner in 2016 and 2017) is the Spring Break destination for families seeking amazing adult- and family-time opportunities in a tropical island dream.
Parents: Get Ready to Relax
With outstanding activities for kids including an Octopool, a splash area with fountains and palm-tree sprayers, and friendly, attentive staffers, adults can kick back, relax, and enjoy the best in beach views, poolside drinks, spas, and food.
When you first check in, you’ll notice the very helpful staff and then, you’ll be wowed by your awesome accommodations. Each clean, beautiful spacious condo suite comes with a guaranteed beachfront, water view and is complemented by many amenities including kitchen appliances and a washer and dryer, but the best amenity is a screened-in lanai (veranda) for privacy. Be sure to take in a sunset or two from your lanai and breathe in the fresh Gulf air.
The resort’s state-of-the-art fitness center, award-winning full-service marina, and romantic boat rental opportunities in addition to a changing array of exciting daily activities such as beach yoga all enrich the adult experience.
For further stress reduction, I recommend their Aquagene Spa. They have several amazing head-to-toe spa treatments, but having a private massage on a private beach in the shade of a Chickee Hut is the ultimate in relaxation.
They have delicious and relaxing dining opportunities too, including a four-course dinner on the beach prepared by an award-winning chef. An extraordinary experience! At Jack’s Breakfast, the wide array of tasty breakfast buffet items will have you coming back every day (so it’s great that breakfast is included for two guests daily). At Bongo’s beach bar and grill, definitely try the coconut shrimp and any of one of their wonderful frozen cocktails.
While adults will certainly appreciate all that Pink Shell Beach Resort has to offer for relaxation, you will really adore Pink Shell’s fabulous list of family activities.
Fun in the Sun for Everyone
Pink Shell will make you a superhero with your kids. It has so many great ways to spend top-quality family time with them. Sailboat rentals, paddle and regular bike rentals, guided kayak tours, treasure hunts, ice cream sundaes on the pool deck, beachside campfires/smores, dolphin tours, arts and crafts, and wave runner rentals are just the start.
A lagoon-style “Octopool” with a large waterfall, sponges, and giant shells (with great swimming for the whole family), 12 acres of beach to explore, parasailing, and sailing lessons are complemented by an ever-changing list of such daily activities as watching movies from the pool, kite flying, volleyball, candy bar bingo (for the whole family), star-gazing events, and cruises.
Pink Shell Beach Resort & Marina also rents private beach cabanas and private beachside fire pits for more quality family time or adult time.
Local shopping opportunities abound and boating excursions to the nearby Sanibel Island, with its shell-strewn beaches and unique wildlife, can be a really fun and scenic way to take in more of the local flavor.
The reason that I like Pink Shell Beach Resort and Marina so much is a simple one. The offerings are just too good to pass up if you are looking for the consummate family vacation. No matter what your family’s interests are, Pink Shell will have you covered with first-rate adult, child, and family experiences artfully brought together in seamless fusion of fun and relaxation so that each member of the family can find the exact vacation for which he or she is looking. If you’re looking for the perfect family vacation for your spring break, I hope that this article helps as this vacation is a no brainer. Pink Shell Beach Resort is calling and the Mai-Tais await. Cheers!
