Sanibel Island News and Events

Sanibel - Captiva.org

Sanibel Island measures roughly 12 miles long and three miles across at its widest.

Sanibel & Captiva Islands are located off the coast of southwest Florida, just west of Fort Myers, Florida. Fort Myers is situated between Naples, FL and Tampa, Fl.

The Fort Myers Airport, Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW airport code), is located approximately 20 miles away from Sanibel Island.

Sanibel Island has two main roads that parallel each other. Periwinkle Way, located at the four-way stop immediately past the Visitor Center, is the main thoroughfare. West of the causeway, it leads to the island's shopping and dining district. Follow it east and you'll pass a quieter commercial section, ending up at the Sanibel Lighthouse and its beach. Gulf Drive, the other main route, roves past resorts, beaches, and homes at the water's edge. It is segmented into East, Middle, and West Gulf Drive.

The toll to cross the Sanibel Island Causeway onto the island is $6 per car; there is no toll to return to the mainland. Frequent visitors may want to opt for the transponder program, which works on a debit account system and offers discounted tolls of $2 per trip (plus an upfront charge for the transponder).

Sanibel is one of the unique barrier islands of the world, having an east-west orientation when most islands are north-south. Hence, the island is gifted with great sandy beaches and an abundance of shells. Check out the Sanibel Shelling Center for information on the islands beaches and seashells.

There are a few rules that keep our beaches pristine. Pets on Sanibel Island must be leashed, and should be cleaned up after. Captiva beaches do not allow pets.* Alcoholic beverages are prohibited November through May. No open fires and no collecting of live shells please. Click Here to see the 5 reasons to leash your dog.

Basic restrooms are located at all public beach accesses. Some have picnic tables and showers, all have free handicap parking. Parking at Sanibel Island and Captiva Island public beaches costs $2.00 an hour, Cash and credit cards are accepted. Paid parking tickets are not interchangeable between Sanibel and Captiva.

5 Must-Do Activities in Sanibel, Florida

by  Andrea M. Rotondo
http://www.fodors.com/news/5-must-do-activities-in-sanibel-florida-6848.html

Sanibel—an island situated in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Southwest Florida—is one of America's most precious vacation destinations. It is home to some of the world's finest beaches and wildlife reserves. And, thanks to careful city planning, residents have effectively controlled development and encouraged the preservation of the island's ecology since passing the Sanibel Comprehensive Land Use Plan in 1974.

You won't find many buildings taller than two stories here. They're not allowed unless they were built before 1974. Fast food joints and chain restaurants are banned too with the exception of Dairy Queen and Subway, which were on the island before that rule went into effect. What you will find is a laid-back community that's adopted a more organic way of life.

The causeway bridge connects the island to Fort Myers in Lee County. Most of the year residents live on the island's East End. Periwinkle Way is the main drag and it runs from the eastern tip of Sanibel to the midpoint of the island at Tarpon Bay Road. Beach cottages, vacation condos, and multi-million-dollar homes dot Middle Gulf and West Gulf drives, both of which have spectacular views of the beach and ocean.

Here are the five can't-miss activities for any trip to Sanibel...

EXPLORE THE ISLAND BY BIKE OR SEGWAY

Sanibel is the perfect place to cycle or try out a Segway. With 22 miles of paths shared by joggers, walkers, and cyclists, it's easy to discover the island. Check out the shops on Periwinkle Way (don't miss Bailey's General Store, in business since 1899), the beaches on West Gulf Drive, the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and the Nature Center and walking trails at the Sanibel-Captiva Conservation Foundation.

You can rent bikes from Billy's Rentals, Finnimore's Cycle Shop, andTarpon Bay Explorers. Billy's also runs Segway of Sanibel, which offers two-hour guided tours of the island.

DO THE SANIBEL STOOP

Head to any beach on Sanibel and you'll notice people walking along the shore with their shoulders stooped and heads down. They're doing the "Sanibel Stoop," looking for shells that the ocean has deposited here. This barrier island has an east-west orientation instead of the north-south configuration of most other islands. That unique placement is what's created the beautiful, sandy beaches and the abundance of unusual shells. Of the 250 kinds of shells found on the island, the most prevalent are coquinas, scallops, and whelks. You can sometimes find sand dollars but the most prized shell of all in the area is the junonia. You can learn all about the shells of Sanibel at the Bailey-Matthews Shell Museum on Sanibel-Captiva Road.

TAKE A BOAT OUT ON TARPON BAY

Tarpon Bay, on the north side of the island, is a fantastic place to spend the day. There's Tarpon Bay Beach and an expansive bay on which you can kayak, canoe, or enjoy by pontoon boat or standup paddleboard. Tarpon Bay Explorers is the licensed concessionaire at Tarpon Bay as well as the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. They rent fishing equipment, boats, and bikes. They also offer guided kayak and canoe tours plus breakfast, daytime, and evening cruises on covered pontoon boats. No matter how you decide to discover Tarpon Bay, you'll encounter the mangrove forest and tidal flats that are home to bird rookeries for roseate spoonbills, pelicans, egrets, ibis, herons, cormorants, and more than 200 other species of birds. You may also see dolphins and manatees in the bay.

WALK, BIKE, OR DRIVE THROUGH J.N. DING DARLING NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE

Named for cartoonist Jay Norwood "Ding" Darling, the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge encompasses the largest undeveloped mangrove ecosystem in the country. There are several ways to see the reserve. You can drive or bike the 8-mile loop around Wildlife Drive. Three walking trails—Indigo Trail (4 miles roundtrip), Wulfert Key Trail (a quarter mile leading to a view of Pine Island Sound), and Shell Mount Trail (a quarter mile of accessible boardwalk)—can all be found off Wildlife Drive. (Note: Wildlife Drive is closed for repaving until October 2013.) The 100-acre Bailey Tract, located off Tarpon Bay Road, is also a neat area to visit since its wetlands support freshwater plants and animals like river otter, bobcats, and armadillos and reptiles like alligators and turtles

TOUR THE CLINIC FOR REHABILITATION OF WILDLIFE

You may feel like you're in a far-off land in Sanibel but it's actually the home of one of the country's leading wildlife rehabilitation facilities. TheClinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) cares for more than 4,000 sick, injured, or orphaned "wildlife patients" each year. Last year they treated 200 different species. The complex features a state-of-the-art hospital manned by veterinarians and volunteers. At CROW's Education Center, get in on interactive games like "Be the Vet," in which participants try to diagnose an animal's medical issue. There are also behind-the-scenes tours of the rehab hospital as well as video presentations and other special events.
