Welcome to Sanibel Island!

When it comes to Gulf Coast Sunsets, Sanibel Island is the best seat in the house.
Located along the Gulf of Mexico just a short jaunt from Fort Myers, Sanibel Island boasts beautiful sunset views, a historical lighthouse and luxurious resorts. By far, the most popular activity here is shelling.  Sanibel Island is one of the seashell capitals of the world.  The island sits in the perfect orientation and distance to catch gulf coast shells on its beach like no other.  But that is not all you will find on the Island.  Sanibel also hosts fine accommodations, succulent dining, fishing, boating, and last but not least, a tropical sanctuary to relax, retreat or simply draw closer to nature.
