Parking on Fort Myers Beach

Parking spaces are monitored seven days a week including all holidays. Beach and Street Enforcement (BASE) personnel look for expired time limits, overtime parking, and parking violations (i.e. parking in the wrong direction.)

List of parking spaces*
*PLEASE NOTE - Some parking areas/spaces might still be in the process of repair due to the impact of Hurricane Ian. 


As more people and businesses have started to return after Hurricane Ian caused widespread damage throughout FMB on September 28, 2022, regulating parking has again become necessary.  However, the two-hour time limit on parking per meter has been removed. Parking fees of $5 per hour will continue to be collected and violations will be ticketed.  

We are enforcing paid parking, island wide, in all Town marked parking areas, including beach accesses.

Residential/business parking permits have been reinstated after Hurricane Ian. All expired permits MUST be renewed.

Residents who no longer have a prior year parking pass will be able to receive a new one. Residents who need a new parking pass can come to the Town Hall temporary complex at 2545 Estero Boulevard to receive one.

Cost: Residential - $25; Business - $50 (tax included)

The Town does not receive any part of this fee nor is your credit card information stored in a Town database. The description on your credit card billing statement will be "remit-online."

An administrative fee of $175 may be added to the fine by a Special Magistrate. If you fail to pay the fine in the allotted time or fail to appear to contest the violation, the right to contest the violation will be deemed waived and the Town will have the right to issue an order up to the maximum civil penalty.

Registration Holds

The Town implements registration holds on motorists with outstanding parking violations. Parking violations must be paid within 30 business days. The fine increases from $77 to $100 after 30 days. The registration hold process went into effect on August 15, 2017.  Here's the language that describes it:

"Pursuant to Section 316.1967 (payment of parking violations) the Town will be implementing the Florida State Department of Motor Vehicles registration 'hold' process, which places a hold on vehicle registrations. The hold will remain in place until the fine is paid in full at Town Hall and proof is given so that the hold can be removed. No additional fee is assessed by the Department of Motor Vehicles to clear a vehicle registration hold."

The best way to avoid getting a parking ticket is to be aware of where you park, make sure you are legally parked, and read the instructions on the parking signs.
