The drive across the causeway is beautiful! There are several places you can pull off. You can see boats go by, families having picnics, people fishing, even camping. I love the drive.

Worth every penny of the $6.00 to go over the causeway. You see so many people swimming, fishing, jet Skiing, boating on both sides. It's just an awesome WELCOME TO SANIBEL AND CAPTIVA ISLAND. You don't have to pay when leaving on the causeway but...More

Quick and exciting way to enter and leave the Island. Was rebuilt a few years ago and was well paved and the booth operators were extremely courteous and welcoming

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

I'm not sure how you would miss it since you can't go over the bridge without paying. There were two lines, one for the Sun Pass and the other for paying cash.
