Matlacha is near many of Fort Myers’s attractions. Two of the most popular attractions here are the fabulous Sun Splash Water Park and the fantastic McCarthy's Marina. And if your schedule allows, be sure to visit the Alison Hagerup Beach Park and the J. N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.
If you are into nature, go and check out some of the nearby green spaces. These are good spots to relax and unwind. Feel the breeze through your hair at one of the area’s beaches, for example Turner Beach in Captiva.
One of the best ways to experience the great outdoors is to head for the greens at the area’s challenging golf links like the Fort Myers Country Club and the Dunes Golf and Tennis Club in Sanibel.
Spend a few hours with fellow sports fans at Lee County Sports Complex - Hammond Stadium, cheering on local favorites, the Fort Myers Miracle. On match days follow the sea of navy, red and white, to the stadium, then after the final whistle blows, join local baseball lovers at a nearby pub, bar or cafe and relive the action over a friendly drink or two.
After a long day discovering the sights, sounds and smells of Matlacha, relax for the night in one of the area’s popular bed-and-breakfasts, hotels or short-stay apartments. The Sanibel Harbour Marriott Resort & Spa, the La Quinta Inn & Suites Ft. Myers - Sanibel Gateway and the Westin Cape Coral Resort at Marina Village are just some of the most popular accommodation options here.
