Royal Shell Vacations in Fort Myers and Sanibel Island

By: Gillian Birch

Fort Myers Beach and nearby Sanibel Island are both popular for vacations in Southwest Florida. The area is a year-round resort destination, especially during Spring Break, and with families during the summer. During “snowbird season”, many visitors arrive and stay for weeks or even months at a time to escape the chilly winter weather in the northern US states, Canada, and Europe. Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to be lazing on an idyllic white sandy beach in January, basking in 80°F sunshine rather than shoveling snow in degrees well below freezing! However, finding quality vacation rentals can be a challenge. That’s where Royal Shell can be a useful resource.
