Local Attractions

A few suggestions and things we enjoy near Sanibel Island.


J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge

Mangrove forests, freshwater marshes, and endangered species of wildlife—this place has so much natural beauty. Book a tram tour, kayak or SUP, or even go fishing. This is one of our very favorite spots and we think you’ll love it, too. Learn more >


Ford & Edison Winter Estates

See Thomas Edison’s lab, Henry Ford’s car collection, and the experimental rubber trees that eventually became Harvey Firestone’s key to success. Check out some of our favorites: the Moonlight Garden and the very first built-in pool. Learn more>


Sanibel Island Lighthouse

The Sanibel Light or Point Ybel Light was first lit in 1884 and was one of the first lighthouses on Florida’s Gulf Coast. It’s an unusual structure and the beach there is covered with shells. Learn more >


Sanibel Bike Trails

Rent a bike for the day and take a tour to see some of the best spots on the island. There are about 25 miles of trails on the island. Some of the most remote beaches are not accessible by car. Learn more >


The Bubble Room

For some reason, this place is both famous and popular, though I can’t figure out why. Labeled as “Captiva’s Finest Restaurant,” I think it’s actually the only restaurant on that island. Learn more >
