Captiva Island is located near Fort Myers off Florida’s Gulf Coast and often associated with Sanibel Island to its south. Both islands are all about pristine white sandy beaches, shelling, biking, sailing, birding and water activities. Captiva is accessed by a small bridge that crosses Blind Pass from Sanibel Island.
A sliver of land nestled against the state’s southwest coast Captiva Island has a slightly off-kilter and almost magical feel. You might discover a giant frog in Captiva Island, a restaurant where it’s Christmas all year long, or even a tiny starfish.
South Seas Island Resort on the tip of Captiva Island boasts 2.5 miles of beaches and a menu of children’s programs tailored to the sea – from sailing school and mermaid- and pirate-play sessions to on-the-beach day camps and a popular catch-and-release fishing program.
