If you should be exploring Sanibel Island for the first time, listed here are several things it is best to include in your visit:

1.    Seashells.  Since this is likely why you’re traveling there in the first place, hit the coast at dawn prior to when the best shells are consumed.  This is additionally a wonderful time of day for being by the water.  Also, visit the Bailey Shell Museum.

2.    Dolphins.  Late daytime would be the ideal time to search for dolphins along the shoreline.

3.    Kayak tour.  Such tours go through the mangroves at Ding Darling, a national wildlife sanctuary recognized for its plentiful bird life.

4.    Restaurants.  There are some excellent ones, and the grouper and Mahi Mahi are going to be fresh.

5.    Charges.  If you come from the mainland your cost to cross the Sanibel Causeway is $6.  Most beaches charge you $1 for a half an hour to park with a minimum of one hour.  Payment can be made by machines that take dollars as well as charge cards. Seaside auto parking on Sanibel can be quite tight, especially in high season.
