Fun pool side dining next to beach!

Very casual, delicious poolside dining! Fish tacos were amazing! Kids can swim while parents relax then walk to the shell covered beaches.

There are only a few options if you want to dine and drink beach side...and this is the BEST! A must stop while on Sanibel...bartenders make you feel special when there and always make a good drink. Ask about their spicy margaritas!

Walking along the beach and found this great place, service was great from Jeremy and KC. Ate the tuna tacos and they were so good! Definitely a must try. Their rumrunners are perfect, strong and sweet! A nice place to relax and hang out at the bar.

Sanibel Island is about the the beach, the surf, the sun, and the wildlife. For my 20+ years of going it has also been about Coconuts at the Casa Ybel resort where they always know your name. This is one of the few on beach facilities that serve you both great food and and great drinks, and do it with... More

Coconuts is the outdoor bar for Thistle Lodge on Sanibel. Located right on the beach it is a must-visit location for everyone coming to the island. It is fun for all ages.

We went to Coconuts on the 4th of July and had drinks and lunch. My youngest son said it was one of the best burgers he has ever had. The food really was good and the fun and festive outdoor pool/bar scene was neat. Had a few drinks, which were some of the best mixed drinks i have ever had... More

Food for Coconuts is prepared inside the Thistle Inn. A great restaurant, and only steps away. We ordered salads and beer so I can't vouch for the mixed drinks. The service was quick and friendly though.

My boyfriend and I found this place while driving around Sanibel Island on vacation recently. We were hungry and looking for a restaurant and this place popped up on Trip Advisor, so we pulled off the road. For starters, we arrived mid-afternoon, and discovered Coconuts seemed to be just the poolside bar for a rental property. We didn't have very... More
