Summer is flying by, but there’s still plenty of sunshine to go around on Sanibel and Captiva Island. Here are a few of our favorite activities to maximize those precious summer days: 

Go for a leisurely bike ride

Grab the family or cruise with your partner along 25 miles of designated bike paths. Large sections of the bike paths are shaded by a canopy of trees, which makes midday rides a great option.

Lounge on Bowman’s Beach

Speaking of beachin’ it, one of our favorite spots to relax is at Bowman’s Beach. Shells galore and expansive stretches of white sand make this beach a treasure, so be sure to find a good place to set up — you’ll want to be here a while. 

Book a sunset dinner reservation at Old Captiva House

Whether you’re ending a day of exploration or relaxation, enjoy dinner at Old Captiva House to wrap things up in a memorable (and delicious) way.
