The island boasts over 400 different shell species, making it a premier spot for finding rare beauties. Sanibel’s geographic location makes it ideal for shelling. You might even find the coveted conch shell on the beaches of Sanibel.
  • Shops and Galleries: Visit the many art galleries and shops on Sanibel Island. You’ll find driftwood and shell art native to the area. Shops and galleries also feature oil and watercolor paintings, pottery, glass, and jewelry handcrafted from local artists.

Choose an event and save the date so you’re in Sanibel Island at the right time. This island community has plenty of events planned throughout the year. Choose from the many Sanibel Island condo rentals available for your family, located conveniently near the planned events.
  • Island Hopper Songwriter Fest: In late September and early October, Sanibel Island hops with the Island Hopper Songwriter Fest. Book one of the Sanibel Island house rentals and attend free music shows scheduled over two weekends. Get to know bands and artists in this laid-back, intimate setting.

  • Ding Darling Days: Visit Sanibel Beach in October for a week of Ding Darling Days. Sanibel Island vacation rentals provide easy access to the beach events.

-----------

Sanibel Island provides the perfect spot to relax and enjoy the natural beauty of Florida. With soft, warm surf and some of the best shelling you'll find, this small community seaside paradise will become a favorite destination. Sanibel Island vacation rentals not only provide the perfect getaway, they help visitors imagine what it would be like to own a little slice of perfection.  

Things to Do

Beach life is the main draw of this town. Unlike many of Florida's beach communities, this one still has a quiet appeal. The crystal clear waters provide new treasures daily with some of the best shelling in Florida, while the powdery sands and gentle surf make most beach goers' dream vacations a reality. The Sanibel Island lighthouse is also a top draw as well as the J.N. (Ding) Darling National Wildlife Refuge. The Herb Strauss Schoolhouse Theatre is an unexpected gem in this seaside community.

Transit

While most people arrive by car (there is a steep toll of $6 on the Sanibel Island Causeway Bridge so people don't just come to look around for a few minutes), Sanibel is the type of community that once you are there you can walk and bike everywhere you need to go. The roads and drivers are biker friendly with bike paths and bike rental shops everywhere. The low speed limits on the island also make bikers and pedestrians feel more comfortable around automobiles.
A car allows you to leave your Sanibel Island vacation rental and explore Captiva and nearby Ft. Meyers and Ft. Meyers Beach, with its much more raucous and livelier nightlife and beach front bars that draw a young crowd.

Climate

Sanibel Island boasts plenty of warm weather year round. It's not uncommon for temps to stay in the 70s throughout most of the winter, with 50s as the lows. Summer temps soar into the high 80s to low 90s but there's generally a breeze along the coast. Sanibel Island, like most islands in Florida, has strict evacuation rules for non-residents during hurricanes, so if you want to avoid this, it's best to plan your trip outside of the most active parts of the season from July-September.

Events

Life on the island is the kind of quiet that most people long for and it's not the type of area that brings a lot of spring breakers. However, in March, the island is host to the Sanibel Music Festival but it's not the kind of festival to attract a lot of tour busses and cult followings. This music festival focuses on classical music with a week of exquisite music concerts at reasonable prices.

Shopping

Sanibel Island doesn't have a big suburban mall but it does have Periwinkle Way with the shopping areas of Periwinkle Place and Tahitian Garden. These collections of stores offer a number of charming souvenirs and tributes to the casual island lifestyle.
Life on Sanibel Island is deliciously laid back and different from the usual busy beach towns. A Sanibel Island vacation rental allows you to enjoy the island lifestyle without paying the price tag of ownership in paradise.
