Sanibel Island, Florida

A vacation on Sanibel Island or its sister to the north, Captiva Island, is to visit a nearly unspoiled area of natural Florida. Sanibel and Captiva are in a chain of barrier Islands off the Gulf coast of Florida. The islands are accessible by way of a causeway from the mainland in the Fort Myers area.

The area has been developed to maintain a harmony with nature and attracts tourists and visitors from around the world. Ranked third in the world for shelling, the beaches boast over 200 species of shell life. Renowned shelling on the beaches and 6,000 acres of mangrove, bay and estuary in the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge are major tourism attractions.  Activities including hiking trails, canoe and kayak rentals delight the visitor with the vast display of wildlife, birds, flora and fauna. Pelicans, roseate spoonbills, ibis, egrets and great blue herons are among the many species of birds that inhabit this area. Eco tours, fishing, and sightseeing tours are activities that many tourists add to their list of adventures. 

Many visitors and tourists find that bicycling is an excellent mode of transportation for exploring the Island. The Sanibel - Captiva area is an attractive vacation destination with warm gulf waters, and sunny temperate climate as well as an outstanding example of natural conservation and Florida at it's finest.
