About the area

Gulf Dreams on-the-beach is on North Captiva Island, a bridge-less barrier island approximately 4 miles long, accessed only by boat or private plane. No car traffic; only golf carts and sand roads. There is a untouched state wildlife preserve that occupies 60 % of the island. This provides 2 miles of untouched and unrestored beach and opportunity to bike, hike and run, especially when the tide is out. Visiting North Captiva is like time traveling back to Florida in 1945.
