A time to slow down and reflect. A time to reconnect with family and friends. Your vacation on Sanibel Island begins as you drive across the Causeway Bridge arriving at the convenient east end, only minutes from your tropical retreat, Sandalfoot Condominium. Surrounded by the warm SW Florida’s Gulf waters, Sanibel is a 12 mile long island, known for its low-keyed lifestyle, world famous shelling and 25 mile network of bike trails.
Your condo, completely updated, is a 2brm, 2bath beach front sun infused corner unit, with one of the best views in this small complex. All the modern amenities await you; free Wi-Fi, flat screen TV’s, DVD player, King sized bed. Yet this is not why you came. You rise in the morning for your daily walk to Sanibel’s historic Lighthouse, later relax by the pool, or toss a Frisbee in the family friendly open courtyard area. Perhaps a simple meal on your balcony at sunset, a moonlit beach walk, then restful sleep until the sun rises again.
Weather was lovely, warm, sunny. Loved Ding Darling, Beach strolling, Shell Museum, Dolphin spotting. Favorite restaurants: Matzaluna and Sandalfoot 5A2 lanai. Thank you for sunrises and sunsets!
Sanibel Island, a 12 mile long barrier island off SW Florida's coast at Fort Myers is a unique vacation destination. When the Causeway Bridge, built in l963, connected it to the mainland, strict zoning and environmental laws prohibited the typical explosion of development seen elsewhere in Florida; 60% of the Island is designated as protected wildlife preserves, only 2-3 story buildings are allowed, and there are no stop lights! Sanibel is also famous worldwide for its beautiful seashells. The Island's unique geographical east-west orientation allows seashells to collect along the miles of sandy beaches. Other popular activities include dolphin watching, bicycling the 25miles of paved paths, and birdwatching exotic species such as the migratory Snowbird.
