Sanibel Island is located off the coast of southwestern Florida and is easy to reach via the Southwest Florida International Airport near Fort Myers. Sanibel Island is well known, along with its sister island Captiva, as a home to some of the most amazing nature preserves in the state. Sea kayaking is probably the best way to take it all in and there are some great kayaking trails in the area. If you prefer sightseeing by land you might consider renting a bicycle instead of the usual car trips. The nature preserves such as the Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve offer countless activities as well as wildlife viewing and information. One of the most popular activities on the beaches here is shelling. Seashells are tossed up onto the shore by the tides every day, and sifting through them one can find amazing specimens. Other activities here include boating, snorkeling and golfing. Small towns on the island provide the shopping and dining on the island, while on the mainland larger shopping malls may be found. Of course the favorite pastime of vacationers here is doing absolutely nothing. The calm weather and warm ocean breezes will help you relax and enjoy your vacation, as it should be, here on Sanibel Island.
