Sanibel Real Estate
Sanibel is the best known of the 100 Southwest Florida barrier islands. Conde Nast readers recently voted Sanibel one of the “Best North American Islands” in 2005. Coastal Living Magazine also recently named Sanibel the "top shelling beach in the United States."
Sanibel offers the slow pace of island life with a mix of unique shops, galleries, theater and restaurants along its famed Periwinkle Way. Visitors are attracted by the unspoiled coastline and mild waters that invite swimming year-round. Sanibel’s white pristine beaches, located on the southern shores, yield more than 200 varieties of shells, giving name to the “Sanibel Stoop,” the posture associated with shell-collecting. The “Causeway Beaches” are beloved by families for picnicking, swimming, fishing and even windsurfing in a casual and relaxed setting.

Sanibel is home to a large variety of Florida wildlife, including rare birds, alligators, and dolphins. The world-renowned J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge attracts naturalists and budding wildlife enthusiasts, providing visitors with the opportunity to see exotic birds and animals in their natural habitat.
Besides shelling and wildlife, Sanibel offers 27 miles of protected bike paths, kayaking and deep sea fishing through pristine waters. Sunset cruises, island hopping and dolphin excursions appeal to the romantic at heart.
The Sanibel Lighthouse, located on the island’s eastern tip, has long been guiding families and romantics to the vacation of their dreams on Sanibel.
