stopped in for directions and recommendations for a beach. We were 2 adults, 1 senior and 2 kids (11 and 9). They recommended a beach 1/2 way down island off Casa Ybel street. It had easy access from parking, bathrooms and an outdoor shower to rinse off. The sand was white, no seaweed and LOTS of shells!! The water was... More

The lady who helped us, I think her name was Suzanne was lovely. We explained that we had stayed in Sanibel 30 years ago with our children and she managed to find the hotel were we were. Nothing was too much trouble for her. It was greatly appreciated.

Stopped in on arriving at Sanibel (an absolute must) and got all kinds of information, maps, etc., from the very helpful George and Jim. Discovered that they now have a daily last-minute availability list for those who decide to stay on the spur of the moment. Plus, a terrible Florida rainstorm arrived while we were inside the center and they... More

Located just past the causeway onto Sanibel Island was a great info center to plan our day trip to Sanibel. There is plenty of parking, some of it was for 20 minutes but there was others for longer periods. We parked there cause it was part of the trail head for some bike paths around the island. There were washrooms... More

Our first trip to Sanibel and Captiva Islands so we stopped here for information. The gentlemen there were very helpful with things to do, places to eat, beaches and parking. There are all sorts of brochures on places to stay, restaurants, and things to do. There is a bike trail entrance right next to the building.

We found that the Information Center at the end of the bridge on Sanibel was most helpful when we provided a list of activities we enjoy from Trip Advisor. This helped the volunteers provide specific information, maps and local knowledge re: each activity. This limits the brochures we take from the display that we never use.Hint: In addition, we asked... More
