The main drag through Sanibel, traffic here can be unbelievable at times since there are no lights and 4 way stops reign. An interesting street with stores and jungle if you can stay patient.

Periwinkle Way is such a beautiful drive, some of the over hang foliage has been cut back but it is still magical.

Had to stop at Chico's and did make them quite happy with my purchases. Also, had to stop at my favorite store for condiments, cheese, etc. That is Sand Castle Gifts & Gourmet.

From providing traffic control staff in the street during busy times, to the bike paths, to great parking, there is everything you'd need along this stretch.

We were on Sanibel to ride our bike and Periwinkle Way is part of the bike path. There is a lot of traffic to watch for when riding your bikes so be carefull. This is the touristy part of Sanibel and there were some nice looking shops selling anything and everything, tons of places to eat and shop. Not really... More

This is the road that has everything you could possibly want to do! You can rent bikes, shop at the MANY shops, eat at all types of restaurants, and enjoy a drink if you would like.

Fantastic day out on the bike for shopping along the way. We were really happy with the bike path that links all the shopping spots together. There's an excellent variety of shops. Don't forget to use the Sunny Days coupon book for most shops along Periwinkle Way.
