Sanibel Island

Sanibel Island is a place unlike any other – it has a unique reputation and word has gotten around. Sanibel is a barrier island sanctuary where over 67% of the lands on the island are protected through Federal or municipal government or private foundation ownership. Development on the Island is strictly controlled. Life on Sanibel is a delicate balance between the bounty of nature and Sanibel residents and visitors who, for a portion of each year, call this place home.

Getting here is an easy drive from Southwest Florida International Airport. Allow about forty-five minutes to reach the gateway to the islands, the Sanibel Causeway. With naturally beautiful beaches, world-renowned shelling and some of the most gorgeous Gulf Coast sunsets, you won’t want to miss a vacation to this island oasis. In addition to great food, shopping, and our fabulous Sandalfoot Condo accommodations, the island offers an abundance of other attractions and activities.

Come, let this special destination enliven your senses. There are no traffic lights, night-time lighting is kept to a minimum and the twenty-five miles of pristine, white sandy beaches are kept in their natural condition. Everything from nature hiking to shopping to shelling can be found on Sanibel. Pastel colored seashells and soft white sand adorn the beaches on Sanibel Island. Lie back on the beach and watch the pelicans and ospreys fish for food. Read a forgotten book or simply do nothing. On Sanibel Island you will find excellent restaurants, shopping, accommodations and children’s activities. If you want an unforgettable vacation (family, business, couples, honeymoon or simply personal time for you), Sanibel Island is the place to be.

Sanibel offers dozens of outdoor activities – such as swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, shelling (you’ve heard of the “Sanibel stoop”?) Our island is a wildlife and bird viewing paradise, an outdoor Utopia; a cultural jewel rich in history and culture, art, music; a shopper’s trove, and a food lover’s dream. It is a barrier island, a coastal city, a shell collector’s paradise. Pretty good for a tiny island roughly 12 miles long by 3 miles at its widest, with most of it dedicated to wilderness preserve. Make the most of your Sanibel adventure!
