Sanibel Island

Sanibel Island is a beautiful barrier island most famous for it’s shelling.

Shelling is so good and popular that those dedicated to it are reported to have the ‘Sanibel stoop” – i.e. they are hunchbacked – there is even a dedicated blog http://www.iloveshelling.com

The northern half of the Island is protected within the JN ‘Ding’ Darling National Wildlife Refuge – 6300 acre refuge which is home to an abundance of seabirds and wildlife including alligators, roseate spoonbills and pelicans.  There is a 5 mile wildlife drive – bring binoculars or for a closer look hire a canoe or kayak from Tarpon Bay.

On Sanibel businesses and restaurants are spread leisurely along the inner island corridor – Periwinkle Way.  The preferred mode of transport in Sanibel is the bicycle.

Sanibel is a lovely relaxing place to recharge your batteries.
