Why is Fall the Best Time to Visit Sanibel Island?

Sanibel Island is a hidden gem among Florida vacation destinations. It’s a quaint yet exciting island that gives you everything you need for the perfect family getaway. But there’s one major question you need to answer before you can start looking at Sanibel Island rentals: when should you visit? Read on to discover why fall is the best time to visit Sanibel Island. 

Nice Weather

Sanibel Island is in Florida, so you can imagine how hot and unbearable the weather can get in the summertime. However, in the fall, Sanibel Island weather is much more manageable and lends itself well to your vacation. In the fall months of September, October, and November, high temperatures hover in the 80s with low temperatures in the 70s. You’ll still have warm weather to swim during the day, but you can enjoy indoor activities or relax by the fire in the evenings.

You also won’t have to worry about rain too much in the fall. There’s still a decent chance of showers throughout September, but by October, the rain chance decreases dramatically. You won’t need to pack an umbrella or make backup plans in case your activities get rained out.

Less Crowded

Most people visiting our Sanibel Island condo rentals do so in the summer. Since most people are out of school and have some vacation time to blow at work, this arrangement makes the most sense for their schedules. However, by the time Labor Day Weekend rolls around, most of the crowds have gone and the island’s population has greatly reduced.

If you’re able to resist the temptation of summer and plan your vacation for a couple months later, you’ll be thankful you did. Not only will there be fewer people fighting for rental properties and forming long lines at attractions, but it will also be easier to keep an eye on your children and not have to worry about losing them in a crowd.

Save Money

In the summertime, renters know that their properties are going to be in high demand. It’s not uncommon for renters to raise their prices in order to make as much money as possible in these hotter months. However, once the summer crowd leaves, renters still need to bring in earnings as they can.

This is where you come in! During the fall, renters typically drop their prices to try to entice visitors to stay. You’ll be able to grab a luxurious property at a fraction of the typical price. There’s no doubt you’ll get a serious upgrade from what you would typically consider, and all you had to do was postpone your vacation a month or two!
