Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida near Fort Myers. The island is about 12 miles long and four miles wide and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches.
Due to Sanibel Island's unique orientation, lying east to west, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Sanibel is a secluded paradise where spectacular natural beauty surrounds you. Brush away the beach sand and you will find layers of environmental, historical and cultural depth.
The island is a nature lover's dream, come true. Over half of the island has been conserved. The J.N. 'Ding' Darling National wildlife refuge is host to many exotic species of plants and wildlife. The conservation foundation nature center and Bailey Matthew's Shell Museum, offer hands-on exhibits and walking trails to explore.

About Walt & Debbie
We have a large extended family who enjoy getting together in our three family-owned units at Loggerhead Cay.
Why Walt & Debbie chose Sanibel Island
Sanibel has a rare, kick-back charm and precious natural environment. No high-rises, no traffic lights. Just sun & sea and wonderful adventure year-round. :-)
What makes this condo unique
Thanksgiving has become a Sanibel family tradition, and Christmas on the island is so magical.
We love to bike all over - even up to Capitva for lunch at the Bubble Room. Dinner at the Mucky Duck is always a treat. Kayaking around the Bay is so beautiful and peaceful. And the beach is so unforgetable.
The kitchen is fully-equiped for Thanksgiving dinner, and it's great to have the laundry so handy. The WIFI and phones make it easy to keep up with the world. We love it here and hate to leave. :-(
Guestbook comments from the owner
My brother and I brought our families to Loggerhead Cay for a beach vacation and had a blast. The complex is easy to get to from the airport - straight across from the stop sign when you hit the island.
Unit 122 has a great full beach view and 572 has an angled beach and direct pool view so it was easy for adults to keep an eye on the kids in the pool. The condos are nicely decorated and steps to the beach and the pool.
We had a challenge getting tennis time til we figured out the sign-up sheet - if you like to play watch for when it's posted. We tried our hand at surf-casting and the kids had a blast and caught some pretty good-sized fish. Get bait at the grocery store at the main intersection before you head out to Captiva.
The beach goes for miles in each direction and we enjoyed our morning runs. You can go forever if you want. We rented two kids bikes to go with the two adult bikes per unit the owners provided. It worked out pretty well. The kids wanted us to rent a couple more kid bikes, but we wanted to keep an eye on them. We ended up keeping them busy most of the time.
Each condo has a kitchen with all the appliances and utensils you can use. We were told to shop at a grocery store off-island on our way from the airport, and that was good advice. We got things for snacks, breakfasts and lunch and ate out most nights. But we had a fine two-family dinner on the lanai in Unit 122 overlooking the water. The Dads & helpers grilled steaks and fish on the outdoor grills and the Moms & other helpers set up stuff indoors.
For eating out, we all loved the Island Cow but when the island is busy, consider going early. There are a ton of other nice places. The adults liked the Timbers, the kids prefered DQ, which is close by. We found a neat breakfast place for the adults on Periwinkle down toward the lighthouse.
We biked all over, sat on the beach, splashed in the pool, rented kayaks one day, spent an afternoon up at Captiva, and had our own kite fight. There's a ton to do.
Oh, and check out the Sanibel Fitness Center. It's open to the public and you can get a family pass. VERY reasonable. We discovered it on Friday, but I would have gone every day had I known about it. It's after the school on the main road out to Captiva. It's great for the fitness nut.
We hope to make this a family tradition. Loggerhead is a great fun, family place and Sanibel is such a wonderful, unspoiled island.
