Sanibel Island, Florida
Additional Location Information
Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida near Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for it's fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along it's beaches. The average temperature in Sanibel is about 75 degrees. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 15 miles of beautiful, soft, sandy beaches.
Quite possibly the first image one has of Southern Florida's Sanibel Island is the striking sunsets, spectacular shelling and looming lighthouses. Yet there are so many unexpected pleasures to find here. Sanibel Island has an ambiance that you will find nowhere else. 60% of the island is perpetually dedicated as a nature and wildlife preserve and development is strictly controlled. There are no traffic lights, night time lighting is kept to a bare minimum and the twenty miles of pristine, white, sandy beaches are kept in their natural condition. Everything from nature hiking to shopping to just plain relaxing can be found on Sanibel.
Located just off the coast of Fort Myers, North West of Fort Myers Beach and Estero Island, West of Cape Coral and Pine Island, and North of Bonita Springs and Naples, our islands function as the Southwest Florida crown jewels attracting visitors to the area just to visit our pristine beaches found nowhere else on earth.
Pastel colored seashells and soft white sand adorn the beaches on Sanibel Island. Lay back on the beach and watch the pelicans and herons fish for their dinner, read a forgotten book or just do nothing. On Sanibel Island you'll find excellent restaurants, shopping, accommodations and children's activities. If you want a truly unforgettable family vacation, Sanibel Island is the place to be.
Sanibel offers dozens of outdoor activities--such as swimming, boating, biking, fishing, hiking, shelling, windsurfing, and kayaking--available all year round. In addition there is a lively arts scene, featuring professional theatrical productions and a wide range of art galleries. Visit the famous wildlife sanctuaries and nature preserves that provide glimpses of rare migratory birds and the many types of fauna that call Sanibel home.
Some call it a magical tropical retreat. Others call it an environment like none other. But whatever you wish to call Sanibel, one thing is clear: this island is truly unique. It is Florida at its absolute best. Like no other place.
There is always a quiet tranquility that is the essence of Sanibel and always only footsteps away at Sandalfoot!
