  • Periwinkle is the main street in the North of the island. The Causeway at Tarpon Bay Road, this name, but it then becomes Sanibel-Captiva Road. Parallel to this road, there is a beautiful bike path in two ways. There are also a cycle track on Gulf Drive, the main street in the South of the island. Sanibel is home, everywhere. Periwinkle has several shops but nothing that distorts the beauty of the island. No McDonald's or signs of other channels. Of the local. The island has only one entry way, it is best to get there on weekdays as weekends are bumper to bumper.

  • Local seashells jewelry & mermaid are sold in this vintage Sanibel Consignment Shop! A yearly must visit for snowbirds tourists residents. Best island values can be found with new inventory coming in daily!
  • Paul and everyone at this shop are just the best. On this visit we overheard that the property has/would be sold so if you've been meaning to visit - get there soon!
