I honestly didn't even want to do this page. I have been around the world, Guam, Hawaii, Mexico, all 50 states in fact, Canada at least 3 times, and even to Key West and Jamaica, and I have never fallen in love with a place like I did here. It is totally behind the times 50 years, and ahead of the times 50 years, an anomaly of sorts. One third is a wild life refuge. It is a beautiful place!
This is most typical an entrance to a Sanibel beach. Parking is $2.00 per hour, so staying on island, and walking or biking to the beach is the best bet. One day wouldn't kill you, but if you had to pay $16.00 per 8 hour day each day to park, for a week, this is a considerable expenditure.
Shelling, swimming, sunning, boating, water sports, fishing. The Gulf has a life and life-style all it's own. If you have only sought oceans, try the Gulf just once! It is my personal opinion that for family's, especially with small children and/or seniors, the swimming is unmatched. I saw no hostile water-life (jelly fish), and there are almost no waves. Also the depth is quite nice, at low tide you can walk so far out is is amazing.
- Pros:Beaches, family atmosphere, quiet and lovely.
- Cons:Drawbridge only entrance/exit, can be CLOSED.
- In a nutshell:I will return, if not to visit, then to live!!
Mike found beautiful flowers every where on the island. Wonderful gardens and some growing wild. These are just some of... more travel advice
