Inspirock Rating:
4.3/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web
Spanning the San Carlos Bay, Sanibel Causeway connects Sanibel Island to Florida's mainland at Fort Myers. Newly rebuilt in 2007, the bridge is accessible to both cars and bicycles. The 4.5-km (2.8-mi) drive across offers unmatched views of the bay, with opportunities to pull over and snap photos periodically. Two man-made islands connect the three separate bridges making up the causeway. Stop at one of the islands for a quiet place to have a picnic. Work out when and for how long to visit Sanibel Causeway and other Sanibel Island attractions using our handy Sanibel Island family vacation planner.

  • Nice bridge. I think $6 is a bit expensive. If you were looking to stop and fish on the beaches it might be worth it. 
  • The bridge and the views on it are lonely bit. From the Sanibel Causeway is a really nice view of most end one can stop also right and left on the beach and look den.weiten enjoy. Unfortunately that is hit with $5 İland to get great not billigum to Sanibel

  • Very nice set of bridges to get to the island. Don't forget to stop before the last 2 bridges at entrances to take seashells and relax looking the Gulf of Mexico.
