We were to Captiva Island beach both at the North Pointe and South Village of South Seas Resort. Both are equal and not much different. Sand is very nice and smooth with lots of shells and sea life like hermit crabs and fish. We also saw dolphins swim at a far distance from beach. Overall, South Seas resort provides chair... More

We arrived early and got one of the last parking spots. We were not there on a weekend, or peak season..... When we left, the line up waiting for a spot was very long, and people were getting very testy. The beach is nice, but not worth the parking ordeal in my opinion. The drive out, past incredible beach houses,... More

This is a nature lovers beach. Shelling is out of this world. Live marine life is abundant. The sand is darker because of the crushed shells and the water is not as clear as the panhandle. The shelling and sunsets make up for this. Beautiful beach.

The Tween Waters beach is one of the prettiest beaches we've ever been to! It's steps away from the hotel with pretty white sand. There are chairs and cabanas to rent if you wish. The sunsets attract crowds of people watching the sun sink into the Gulf!

Been to many beaches. Captiva Beach just "feels different", it has it's own personality, it's own allure....you almost feel like you're in the Caribbean. Great shelling, white sand beaches and fantastic sunsets combine to make the serenity almost tangible. Returning in October ...... Can't Wait......

Clean beach and awesome views! We took a quick walk on the beach and it was not packed as beaches often can be.

Captiva beach is a great place to throw down your stuff and hang out. The waves were not very large and the water temperature was absolutely perfect! With the gentle breeze it was magnificent. No crowds, no noise. Peaceful. Relaxing. Be sure to take shade of some sort and lots of heavy duty sunscreen. The sun's UV rays are very... More
