Visit the Beaches For Sun and Shells

There are different beach areas on Sanibel Island. Bowman’s Beach is one of the more remote beaches and is a quarter mile walk from the parking area. It is a great location for finding sea shells. The Sanibel Island Lighthouse Beach is a great place to view the Sanibel Island Lighthouse. While the lighthouse is not open to the public, you can view it from the beach. The beach has nice shells, but swimming is not recommended due to the strong cross currents. Gulfside City Park, however, also has beach access. It is open to the public. The park features picnic areas, trails, and an old cemetery. It is a great place for relaxing.

Visit Museums While You Are on Sanibel Island

There are several museums located on the island. Since Sanibel Island is noted for its sea shells, it is not surprising that the Bailey-Matthews National Sea Shell Museum is located here. The museum has over 30 permanent exhibits and several temporary ones. They showcase shells from around the world as well as shells from Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Additionally, they have world record sized shells and shells used in art, so there is something to interest everyone. Another museum, the Sanibel Historic Museum and Village strives to preserve the history of the island. It starts with exhibits that tell the tales of the first Spanish settlers and continues to the 1800s and the pioneers who lived on Sanibel Island at that time. Seven buildings were moved to the museum from different parts of the island. They were restored to look the way they did during the period they were built. These buildings encompass the village portion of the museum and can be visited by museum guests.

                                                            Pointe Santo Unit E32

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            We have stayed at several units at Pointe Santo. Unit E32 is an absolute favorite of ours. Some of the things we liked most - the overall cleanliness, well equipped kitchen, beach towels and chairs, view of the ocean and lagoon, window treatments, lanai furniture, location in the complex. The only thing that disappointed us was that there was nothing to play the cd's we brought but that would not be a reason to return next year.

                                                            Another Amazing Stay!

                                                            We are return guests and this year did not disappoint! The unit is perfect, plenty of space, very clean, beautiful open kitchen, new master bath, free Wi-Fi, amazing views, what more could you ask for?! We have a 9 year old and a 6 year old and this location is the perfect vacation for them. This condo really does feel like a home away from home, very comfortable! We spend time at the pool and at the beach. We love riding bikes on the island's paths and through the Bailey Tract Nature Preserve which is just down the way from Pointe Santo. Ding Darling is another nearby nature preserve that our kids enjoy visiting. There are great family friendly restaurants, we love Doc Fords and the Over Easy Cafe, which is just down Tarpon Bay Road. Bailey's Grocery Store is nearby too which is very convenient. Captiva Island is a 20 minute drive, definitely worth a visit for dinner at Mucky Duck or the Bubble Room. We'll be back again in 2017!
