What a beautiful place North Captiva is. Perfect for those sunset's. Parking is another thing though better rent a golf cart or scooter. Beaches are great for shelling ok for swimming but this is a shelling resort island.

Always a great spot. Throw a line in, enjoy the sun, peace and quiet. We like to visit in the fall when the munchkins are back in school.

We stopped here when we saw people doing the Sanibel Stoop :) The water was VERY dangerous to get in, but there were men fishing on the shore lines. Seashells were abundant!!

All of North Captiva Island is very peaceful and quiet but being near water makes it even better. Awesome place for shelling. The current through the pass is very strong so don't go swimming in there and anchor your boat or you'll keep drifting. Get yourself over to the Cayo Costa side of the pass, because that's where the shells... More

Very nice beaches. The sand is not as powdery as Fort Myers Beach but it is still nice, and very peaceful. Good spot for shelling too!

Went out with Jim Burnsed- had a great time. Unfortunately a storm the week before was making the fish a little shy. But we did manage to hook up a couple of small sharks. Thanks Jim for a great day.

This is not a beach for swimming (there are plenty of great beaches on Sanibel/Captiva for that), but it's an incredible beach for shelling. My wife and kids love to shell so they can spend an entire day here. There are literally piles of shells on the beach with more washing in all the time. Parking is limited and costs... More

We took our boat from Sanibel and went to Cabbage Key and on the way back we stopped at North Captiva. We found a secluded place to beach, but it is very shallow and you have to pay attention. It is a great place for people who like to shell, but don't like crowds. The Captiva side of the pass... More
