North Captiva Island is a small island north of Captiva Island just off the coast of Ft. Myers Florida. As a gulf coast beach, the surf is calm and the water warmer than east coast beaches. North Captiva is particularly nice for people who don't...More
I am getting married in 2017 and my sister booked a house through North Captiva Island Club for my low-key beach bachelorette party. All I wanted was to lay low on the beach, hang by the pool and spend time with my friends and family....More

They can be bad at Dawn and dusk. They seem to be worse in the spring/summer/fall. They are not as much of a problem in the wind, so being on the gulfside on the beach won't be as bad as bayside typically. Screened lanai... More
They can be bad at Dawn and dusk. They seem to be worse in the spring/summer/fall. They are not as much of a problem in the wind, so being on the gulfside on the beach won't be as bad as bayside typically. Screened lanai with ceiling fans help, but they are small enough to get through most screens. I wear a natural product called Cactus Juice that works really well for me and my family. You can buy it on Amazon or from their website- google Cactus Juice. It is labeled skin protectant and has an SPF of 20. It is not waterproof. I add Deep Woods Off spray over the Cactus Juice ONLY when I am hiking through vegetation or kayaking in the bay. What month are you visiting? PM me if you have further questions. After 27 years of visiting SW Florida islands I have seemed to develop a tolerance to the bites, but I still do not go out without Cactus Juice at dusk or Dawn.
