What to Bring

“All day – All night – Casual” is appropriate. Our easy-going, outdoor lifestyle translates to informal attire. Shorts and sandals are the accepted island uniform. Restaurants span from simple outdoor cafes to elegant candlelit dining rooms, none require jackets or ties. Retail establishments generally request shirts and shoes.

Sunshine is the order of the day. Our winters have average daytime temperatures in the 70s and 80s and usually dry (it never rains on Sanibel/Captiva, just an occasional heavy dew). Summer temperatures, ranging from the 80s to low 90s, are cooled by sea breezes and brief afternoon showers, followed by more sunshine and a glorious sunset.
