Area Information
Once you cross the causeway from mainland Florida to Sanibel Island, you will have arrived at one of the most pristine places on earth. Sanibel is a relaxing island with its white sand beaches on the warm and inviting waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The Island is world-renowned for its extraordinary shelling, and with nearly 70% of Sanibel designated as nature preserve, it is a haven for abundant wildlife from herons and pelicans to sea turtles and dolphins. And when you have had your fill of the beach for the day, you can spend time biking on the miles of paths, shopping at the quaint stores in Periwinkle Place and Tahitian Gardens, or you can dine at one of the many restaurants such as The Lazy Flamingo, Doc Fords and The Sanibel Café. Sanibel is a truly unforgettable and special place, and you will find yourself always wanting to return to the Island.
