Sanibel Island, FL Ranks Again!

Sanibel Island

Best Beaches in the World – Ranked by US News Travel

We’re so excited to announce that Sanibel Island has ranked again in yet another list of BEST BEACHES of the world! This time we’re #10 and it’s no small accomplishment – we love being included in the Top beaches to visit. Read on for the delightful details!

For some beachgoers, leafy palms rustling in the breeze, calm waves lapping against the shore and remote stretches of powdery sand are all that’s required for total bliss. But for others, magnificent scenery and a bustling boardwalk are the main attractions. U.S. News Travel has compiled a list of dreamy sands that are sure to inspire you to grab your beach bag and go.

You’ll look out over a shore littered with colorful seashells as you claim your spot on Bowman’s Beach. The island boasts a calm ambiance that you’ll experience everywhere from the shoreline to Periwinkle Way. At the end of the day, head to Captiva Island to catch a gorgeous sunset.

Sanibel Island Travel Tips

This secluded Fort Myers offshoot is considered even more low-key, quiet and quaint than its Gulf Coast neighbor, and that’s saying a lot. Casual is the order of the day on Sanibel Island; a shabby chic vibe permeates the Periwinkle Way galleries, restaurants and shops; seashells cover every sandy and linoleum surface. In fact, the abundant seashells have become this island’s (and its smaller sister, Captiva’s) claim to fame. You’ll find plenty of beachcombers practicing the “Sanibel stoop” — what locals call shelling — on any lengthy stretch of sand. Plan on joining them for at least one afternoon of your stay; that is, if the mood strikes you. The residents of laid-back Sanibel wouldn’t have it any other way.

boardwalkHow To Save Money in Sanibel Island

Don’t drive to the beach – All of Sanibel’s beaches have metered parking. Book a hotel that’s close to your beach of preference, then walk or bike to the shore.

Visit in fall – Winter is the standout season on Sanibel, but the best shelling conditions are actually in the cheaper fall months. Pack a sweater and book for October or November.

Keep in Mind…

Food is a fine art – Seafood is all the rage, particularly grouper and stone crabs. For dessert, order something with chocolate pudding fruit, a locally grown fruit that’s filled with a sweet, chocolate-colored pulp.

There’s a knack to shelling – For the best assortment of whelks, conchs and sand dollars, visit the beach an hour before low tide or right after a rain shower. Ask at your hotel’s front desk for a guide to finding the best “catch.”
