Located in southwest Florida, along the Gulf of Mexico, Sanibel Island is rightfully famed for its magnificent sunsets, luxurious resorts, and iconic lighthouse. The island is home to a number of wonderfully-scenic and pristine beaches, some of which include Tarpon Beach, Bowman’s Beach, Blind Pass Beach, Captiva Beach, and the Causeway Beaches. Sanibel Island’s biggest claim to fame would be its abundance of sea-shells, winning multiple awards for regularly being among the nation’s best areas for shelling. The island offers much more than just shelling, it’s well-equipped with sensational seafood restaurants, charming shops, and cozy cafés. Beach days here are perfect for sunbathing, swimming, building sand castles, and enjoying many other fun water activities.
