Located along the Gulf of Mexico, just a short drive from Fort Myers, Sanibel Island is justly famed for its sunsets, lighthouse and luxurious resorts. By far, the most popular activity on Sanibel Island is shelling. You barely can walk a step on the beach without indulging in the so-called "Sanibel Stoop" to search for shells, but there is so much else to do on Sanibel Island – fine accommodations, luscious dining (seafood, of course!), fishing, boating and just plain relaxation. Sanibel Island is a chance to get away from the hurly burly, a chance to draw closer to nature.
