What to See and Do on Sanibel Island
There are many things to do even on this serene island. With miles and miles of beach, families can walk along the water's edge and collect shells. The east to west orientation of the island makes it a unique place in that shells found nowhere else can be picked up from the sand. The types of shells can be identified at the Sanibel Shelling Center, so you can easily learn about the collections you can take home with you. Peaceful and magical beaches include Lighthouse Beach, Tarpon Bay Beach, and Bowman's Beach. Sanibel Island rentals are all within a short distance of at least one beach, so you immediately can see the benefits of staying here once you arrive.
Fun on the water is as great as at its edge. On Sanibel, families can embark on boating and sailing charters; rent boats, canoes, and kayaks; or take a cruise. To pick up the pace, rent a waverunner or go parasailing. Bird watching is also spectacular on Sanibel in many places, including at a national wildlife refuge that encompasses thousands of acres. Bike rides and nature tours make any day fulfilling before settling back for a quiet dinner at Sanibel Island vacation home rentals. The quiet time never ends here, especially when you choose Sanibel Island condo rentals over a hotel or motel room.
