About Sanibel Island and Captiva Island Updated for 2022

Welcome to Sanibel Florida, voted the #2 beach destination in America for families by US News and with good reason, miles of soft white sand beaches, some of the best shelling in the world and home to the Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, which, at 5,200 acres, covers nearly half of the island.

It’s the largest undeveloped mangrove sanctuary in the U.S. Sanibel is kind of America’s inland paradise. It’s very similar to things you’d find in the Caribbean or Hawaii, or much more exotic destinations but it’s minutes from the mainland of Florida. It’s a great undiscovered treasure, I think of the Gulf Coast.

Sanibel has got some of the best fishing in the world, Sanibel is also one of the top shelling destinations in the world. People come from all over the world to take advantage of our shelling all along the beaches of Sanibel. Once people come to Sanibel and experience all that it has to offer the natural beauty, the sunsets, the shelling.
