Visited the causeway- packed dinner. We found a picnic table on the beach and ate. You can’t buy those views. Went shelling afterwards and watched the sunset. Beautiful. Worth the $6 to get on the island.

Great views coming on to the island. There are also beaches on each side if you want to stop. Just know that it is $6 cash only to get on.

A necessary, and delightful, access to Sanibel Island. Frequent sightings of dolphins, and osprey. Inspiring vistas.

Remember to bring $6 cash for the toll onto the causeway to enter Sanibel Island. It's a beautiful long bridge surrounded by water and amazing views!

All the beaches on Sanibel are covered in sea shells. The best time to find the large and unique shells is early morning before the gobs of tourists hit the shoreline for the day. Happy shelling. Be sure to take a bag to put... More
