Discover Sanibel and Captiva

Linked to Fort Myers by a 3 mile road, the Sanibel and Captiva islands have a collection of beautiful sand beaches and infinite shells. Not much frequented, the islands have kept their beauty thanks to landscapes that are still untouched, and to the peace found on the islands. Alligators, herons and egrets have found their habitat here. In Sanibel, there are some interesting visits to be done such as the 1884 lighthouse, the Matthews Shell Museum, the History Museum, Tarpon Bay Park (where you can rent kayaks and canoes) and the JN National Reserve (with car, boat, tramway and walking tours). Captiva offers two well equipped seaside resorts and numerous art galleries.

Although you do need a lot of patience for bird watching, one single sighting can sometimes make up for a long wait.
