734 Anchor Drive in Sanibel Estates
Private East-End Canal Living Near the Beach
Anchor Drive is part of Anchors Aweigh which is a small group of homes within Sanibel Estates. Conveniently located on Sanibel’s east-end, Sanibel Estates is handy to the causeway for easy on/off-island access, the Sanibel Marina, the community fishing pier (near the Lighthouse), and the many shops & restaurants in olde Sanibel.
Sanibel Estates has three community beach access paths. The closest to this home, which is near the end of the Anchor Drive cul-de-sac, is just a short walk over the canal bridge at the end of the street, to the beach path just opposite the intersection of Spoonbill Court & East Gulf Drive. The path borders the tennis court at Sandalfoot condominiums. It’s an easy 5-10 minute stroll (~1500′ or 1/4 mile) from the home to the gulf.
