Sanibel Island

Sanibel Island is perfect for a relaxed holiday experience. With sun-drenched beaches, clear balmy waters and Mother Nature on the doorstep, whether you choose to do just a little or a lot, you are assured of a picture-perfect setting. There is an abundance of natural wonders on Sanibel including the largest Mangrove ecosystem in the USA which gives home to an array of species such as Florida’s state bird the Roseate Spoonbill, manatees, dolphins, alligators, sea otters, pelicans and more. The J.N. ‘Ding’ Darling National Wildlife Refuge is free to visit by car, cycle, foot or kayak, or for a nominal fee you can take a guided trolley tour and spot the wildlife for yourself. The geography of the island is also unique, with the tides of the Gulf of Mexico washing up hundreds of shells each day. Shelling is a popular pastime and those who partake in gathering these beautiful shells develop what is fondly known as the ‘Sanibel Stoop’. You can walk for miles discovering different shells at every turn. Of course, the best way to discover Sanibel is by bike – there are 25 miles of cycle paths designed to make it safe and easy to get around. A visit to Sanibel Island is incomplete without getting out on the water to explore some of the nearby islands (there are over 100 of them).

Captiva Island

15mi / 24km

Today you make the very short trip to Captiva, to experience life on one of the other barrier islands. Captiva Island is the smaller sister island to Sanibel in many ways. It is also renowned for its slow pace of life. You can sit and read a book, walk the miles of pristine beach, learn to fish, or head to the Mucky Duck Pub on the beach and be amazed at the glorious sunsets. Artists have been drawn to Captiva for years because of its lifestyle, and it’s easy to see why – the beauty of the area is awe-inspiring, with islands dotted around Pine Island sound, and cacti and bougainvilleas pepper the landscape. The heart of Captiva, whilst not quite a metropolis, is home to a wonderful collection of local cafes and restaurants where visitors can watch the slow moving Captiva-world go by. South Seas Island Resort is located at the tip of Captiva and offers a stunning resort experience with 2.5 miles of beach on its doorstep. It is also home to the Offshore Sailing School. Being located at the gateway to Pine Island sound and the Gulf of Mexico, it’s the perfect launch pad from which to discover the surrounding islands.

Cape Coral

32mi / 51km

You’ll enjoy the final destination of your holiday trio starting today. Cape Coral is renowned as a waterfront wonderland with more canals than anywhere else in the world (over 400 miles of waterways) and also by birding enthusiasts for its abundance of wildlife. It boasts the largest population of burrowing owls in Florida! Exploring Four Mile Cove Ecological Preserve is a great way to see local wildlife, with raised walkways through the mangroves allowing visitors to experience Florida’s eco system first hand. The Westin Cape Coral is a stunning resort; a paradise for those looking to relax and be pampered. The Westin is surrounded by water and has its own marina offering daily boat transfers to Fort Myers Beach should you be looking for more activities.
