Quite possibly the first image one has of Southern Florida’s Sanibel Island is the striking sunsets, spectacular shelling and looming lighthouse. Yet there are so many unexpected pleasures to find here. Sanibel Island has an ambiance that you will find nowhere else. 60% of the island is perpetually dedicated as a nature and wildlife preserve and development is strictly controlled. There are no traffic lights, night-time lighting is kept to a bare minimum and the twenty miles of pristine, white, sandy beaches are kept in their natural condition. Everything from nature hiking to shopping and shelling of course, can be found on Sanibel.
Located just off the coast of Fort Myers, North West of Fort Myers Beach and Estero Island, West of Cape Coral and Pine Island, and North of Bonita Springs and Naples, our islands function as the Southwest Florida crown jewels attracting visitors to the area just to visit our pristine beaches found nowhere else on earth. Find additional travel information here.
Pastel colored seashells and soft white sand adorn the beaches on Sanibel Island. Lie back on the beach and watch the pelicans and herons fish for their dinner, read a forgotten book or just do nothing. On Sanibel Island you’ll find excellent restaurants, shopping, accommodations and children’s activities. If you want a truly unforgettable family vacation, Sanibel Island is the place to be.
Sanibel offers dozens of outdoor activities–such as swimming, boating, biking, fishing, hiking, shelling, windsurfing, and kayaking–available all year round. In addition there is a lively arts scene, featuring professional theatrical productions and a wide range of art galleries. Visit the famous wildlife sanctuaries and nature preserves that provide glimpses of rare migratory birds and the many types of fauna that call Sanibel home.
