The beaches and warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico offer a huge amount of entertainment for all visitors, from the ages 9 months to 99 years, whether you want to relax on the beach with the sand between your toes or head into the gulf with a fishing rod. The shelling beaches of Sanibel Island, Florida, are known around the world, and bird watchers will already know about the fantastic Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Bird Sanctuary which is located on the island. Great Blue Herons, Brown Pelicans, Roseate Spoonbills and Egrets can all be seen in a very natural environment from Sanibel Island accommodation.

The centre of the island is a maze of cycle paths, footpaths and rivers which provide great channels for investigating the wildlife of the interior; by canoe.

There are also a surprising number of top class restaurants in the resorts of Sanibel Island, and enough facilities to mean you never have to venture far from your Sanibel Island accommodation if you don’t feel like it!

Fishing in the Gulf of Mexico is serious business. The warm waters are home to some monster fish, with trophy fish regularly being caught. Snook, redfish, tarpon and sea trout are some of the most regularly caught, and there are many other species which patrol the waters. Scuba diving also thrives in the area.
