Margaritaville is coming to Fort Myers Beach, construction is coming along . And it’s going to completely change the town. Construction began late last year and as you can see, they continue to make steady progress. This aerial footage really lets you see just how fast things are coming along. If you want to compare, here’s the footage from earlier this year.

The big addition to the August update is the setting of the walk over bridge. This will allow people to cross Estero Blvd. without having to navigate traffic. It’s an amazing idea and it’s cool to see it up.

Here’s the press release from to the official website,

“The brand-new Margaritaville Beach Resort Fort Myers Beach is bringing our casual-luxe island lifestyle to Southwest Florida. From 254 high-end rooms and suites to signature Margaritaville services and amenities, you’ll be able to kick back without a care in the world. A stay at this tropical getaway can be as laid-back or action-packed as you wish. Turn up the adrenaline with some water sports, set sail on an adventure through the area’s natural beauty, or simply book a massage and soak up some sun with a frozen concoction by the pool. After all, we’re on island time here. Margaritaville Beach Resort Fort Myers Beach is scheduled to open in 2023.”

Here is drone footage taken by Brian Kennedy yesterday, just a few days after the bridge was set.
