Sanibel The Essential
Recommended
Sparkling Gulf Coast beaches, boutiques and restaurants charm visitors to Sanibel Island and neighboring Captiva Island. Conservation groups lobbied hard to preserve Sanibel's pristine wilderness from development, resulting in a jewel of a wildlife refuge that encompasses nearly a third of the island's total acreage. Within easy reach of Fort Myers, Sanibel is extremely popular with tourists, particularly in winter.
