General Sanibel Questions and answers

What's the best way to get good deals on Sanibel hotels?

The first thing you can do is stop by the Sanibel Captiva Chamber of Commerce (right after you go
over the bridge from Ft Myers); they have a bunch of literature including a leaflet that will list many
of the hotels and cottages on sanibel along with a description.  Many of them will give you a
discount if you mention the Chamber.

My family and I have a reservation at the Sundial Beach and Golf Resort. What can you
tell me about it?

This hotel is a great family resort.  It is located in a lush surrounding with many activities for kids
and adults alike.  By the way, their bar/restaurant has a breathtaking view of the water....enjoy.

What is the best beach for shelling?

All along Sanibel there are great beaches for Shelling. Personally I like Tarpon Beach - it's a public
beach with tons of Shells - just don't park illegally there for even a second as the cops love watching
and giving tickets.  If you're really into Shells, you may want to check out the Bailey Matthews
Shell Museum at 3075 Sanibel Captiva Dr

What are some fun activities to do on the Island other than water stuff?

I'm not sure what you're looking for but here are a few ideas.  You can go to a quaint shopping
area called Perriwinkle Place with nice boutiques. If you're lookng for more of a physical activity,
you can rent a bicycle at one of the rental shops.  You can also use that bike to go through the
popular area of  JN "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge where you will see many reptiles
including alligators and exotic birds.  You can also drive or hike that same path.
