Sanibel & Captiva Islands


This is the east-end of Sanibel Island looking west

Experience the change when you come across the causeway from Fort Myers, Florida to Sanibel Island and then Captiva – a change in nature, in ambience, and in attitude. Pelicans and terns fly along vehicles crossing from the mainland. The sparkling San Carlos Bay waters jump with dolphins. The renowned Sanibel Lighthouse beckons you to the shell-strewn Gulf of Mexico beaches. The tropical waters of Tarpon Bay and Redfish Pass call the sportsmen. Over 6000 residents live year-’round on Sanibel, 400+ on Captiva Island.

On the islands, casual is the fashion both day and night. Lifestyle is easygoing, with a paradise of bike paths, natural attractions and museums featuring tropical flora and fauna, and a plethora of shops, galleries, and restaurants, offering year-round “fun for all ages”. The arts celebrate the natural with venues including a modern playhouse, a community house for social gatherings and shows, plus a vibrant cultural center.
