Beach towels and star fish on beach

One of the most common needs when visiting Sanibel (or any beach location, for that matter) is for beach-style towels.  We at Sanibel Holiday are often asked if the condos and homes we rent have beach towels, which is not as easy to answer as...

Sanibel Holiday

(Apologies to Meat Loaf for that title.)

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sanibel-Captiva Chamber of Commerce issued a new promotion, #paradisecanwait .  While Sanibel cannot accept any arrivals during the month of April, we know there will come a day when "social distancing"...

Sanibel Bound

It happens every year…you’ve made it to the islands for your visit to Paradise, but you feel like you’re going nowhere.  You’re stuck with nowhere to turn.  You are…in Sanibel traffic, likely during rush hour.

Anyone who has lived here or visited often enough know...

Sanibel Storm

It sure seems like summer is here already on Sanibel, but it’s still spring! :O

There’s a recent song by Jesse Rice called, “Go Away Cloud,” part of which goes, “I didn’t come all this way just to see no gray.”  While summer is the...

Bandy Beach A101, Lanai

Practically any location to stay on Sanibel is desirable, but the most popular view at any location is the beach view, and the best BEACH view is the Gulf-Front.  Looking straight out to water as dolphins swim by or pelicans dive down for a meal. ...

Beach with yellow umbrellas and chairs

Sanibel has miles and miles of white sandy beaches, sunshine and countless outdoor activities. With all of this fun you need to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Although some amount of sun exposure is essential as a source of Vitamin D (which...
