Resort on Sanibel Island with pool and private beach

Subtropical Sanibel

Island Inn lies on a white sand beach on Sanibel Island in the Gulf of Mexico. If you collect shells from the beach, you can learn more about what you found at the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum, a 5-minute drive away.

Wildlife spotting

You can rent a kayak and explore the waters of the inn's private beach. For a chance to see amazing wildlife, you'll want to check out the nearby JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge; the nation's largest mangrove ecosystem is home to river otters, alligators, and turtles.

Free breakfast and a pool

Active travelers can play a game of tennis or shuffleboard, or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool. You can start your day with a free breakfast buffet; for drinks and fine seafood, Traditions on the Beach overlooks the Gulf and will cook up fish you've caught yourself.

WiFi and HDTV

Guestrooms are located in 3 separate lodges on the inn's 10-acre property, and feature WiFi and flat-screen HDTVs with DVD players. You can listen to your own music with the iPod® dock, and some guestrooms include full kitchens and private balconies.
