Good break on any deep water swell over 6 feet and can hold faces up to 7-8 feet. But, too deep on small swells, also sucks w/ strong on-shores, but what place doesn't?

We went there on our boat. Views are great. Must stay in the channel markers as very shallow waters. Great boat trip.

Don't miss this. It's at the end of the road, after Sanibel, but so worth the drive. Just a really beautiful spot that should not be missed.

Absolutely beautiful. We spent 10 gloriouse days at sanibel & captiva islands. It is picture perfect. The first few days it was like being in the carribean & the last couple of days the waves resembled the atlantic side. Locals said;"storm was coming inn" but never did. Sunsets are amazing here.

Wear your shoes....lots of shells. A fun place to check out for maximum shelling. Sometimes hard to find because if you blink, you'll miss the turnoff.

We have recently moved to Southwest Florida and have been trying out different beaches in the area. We went to the very end of Captiva and watched the sun set! It is a nice beach and it was the perfect place to watch the sun set. The disadvantages were that there are port-a-poties and no water to wash the sand... More

We recently spent a week on North Captiva Island, which is a barrier island with no cars and accessible by boat. We rented property 176 All Conched Out through NCICR during the last week of July. The island is small, pretty and quaint. I loved the fact that there were no cars and you used golf carts to get around.... More

One of the best beaches in the world for sunsets. We went three times in one week. The sky just lights up with colors.

If you are looking for shells on Sanibel- Captiva beaches this is the place. Low tide, late at night just your honey and a very bright light are all you need. Check the beaches on both sides of Blind Pass
