  • Get some snacks and go early to snare a parking place for sunset. This is a smaller beach, but great location just across from Captiva Island. People on Sanibel are very friendly as well!  more »

  • We had a fun time looking for shells. If you go under the bridge and keep walking you will find a bunch. Didn't find much on the Captiva side. The water is beautiful but it says not to swim because of the currents. People did anyway.
  • Gr8 place to dolphin watch. Take a kayak out & you can practically touch them.
  • Not enough parking. Great for fishing, but no swimming due to high currents. Shelling is just OK
  • Small, but nice beach. Too bad there's so little public parking.
  • Seen a gator run across the road just before we got to the park area, natural, seen a tortoise eating on the beach an his quite big den water is Crystal clear even out over your head you can still see the bottom. You also could see the reflection of the bay on the bottoms of the birds flying over not overcrowded lots of shells...Peaceful,Serenity!!
