Cross the three mile Sanibel Causeway and step back in time to a lush tropical island paradise. Green before “Green” was cool, Sanibel incorporated in 1974 to preserve its pristine beaches, bountiful wildlife, abundant native vegetation, and relaxed way of life.
Uniquely positioned with an east/west orientation, the island acts like a giant scoop collecting a multitude of shells and depositing them on the seventeen miles of white sandy beach. Dig your toes in the sand and enjoy the “Sanibel Stoop” to find your own perfect mollusk treasure. Windsurfing, fishing, kayaking, or just watching the vivid sunsets, Sanibel and Captiva beaches can’t be beat.
