What to do

What’s To Do on Sanibel & Captiva Islands?

A Sunrise walk on the beach is a great way to start the day.

Then what will it be?

You melted to the beach blanket, with only an occasional flip, sip and sunscreen freshen-up?
Or will it be an action shot: Hiking, biking, kayaking or snorkeling into the islands’ adventure zones?
