What's Sanibel Island like?

World-renowned for its shell-filled beaches, this idyllic barrier island is a tropical paradise, complete with palm trees swaying in the wind and breath-taking sunsets. You won’t be short of things to do either, with over 70 scenic courses to excite golf lovers, and paddleboard rental available at Finnimore’s Bike Shop for water sports enthusiasts. Some Sanibel Island hotels also offer bike rental, so be sure to ask at reception. Since the island lies east to west, rather than north to south, an abundance of exotic shells wash up on its shores will allow you the opportunity to spend all day hunting for the perfect seashell on the shores. If you love wildlife, you will really love it in Sanibel Island. During your visit to Sanibel Island you might come across a marsh rabbit, a bobcat, or even an alligator. Bring your binoculars too, as the island is home to pelicans, herons, and even nesting pairs of bald eagles. You can see them from the island, but to really experience it, we recommend renting a boat from the Port Sanibel Marina, and having a little adventure during your Sanibel Island hotel visit.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Sanibel Island.

To keep their beaches so pristine and beautiful, the locals have a simple few rules, and we at Hotels.com recommend you follow them, to ensure a wonderful, peaceful experience for both yourself and the locals. Firstly, pets on the beach must be kept on a leash, and cleaned up after. Secondly, when looking for seashells, please return any live shells to the sea immediately. Lastly, enjoy and appreciate the natural beauty all around you. With its subtropical climate, it doesn’t matter what time of year you visit, since the island is sure to be warm and beautiful. For your safety, remember to pack plenty of sunblock, and a sunhat, and loose, comfortable clothing. The summer is the busiest season to visit, but the Spring might be the loveliest, and every March brings “The Annual Sanibel Fair and Show,” featuring shell collections and shell art, located within walking distance of many Sanibel Island hotels.
