The Causeway joins the mainland (Fort Myers) with Sanibel. It is a new stretch of bridge and road that is impeccably maintained. Along both sides of the road are public parking and beach access to the water. Parking is free but it fills up quickly...More

Just after you pay toll, there are several side of the road beaches...in between mainland and Sanibel Island. They have facilities like public bathrooms, drinking fountains, BBQ grills...NO LIFEGUARD...

The $6.00 toll keeps guest on Sanibel. This toll also keeps out non tourist as Sanibel can become a traffic nightmare.

While taking a little hike, my husband and I found the causeway beach. Other than it being a little more populated than we would have liked, it had a beautiful view of the causeway AND the lighthouse. If you're in Sanibel for any length of...More

This was a nice entry to Sanibel Island and beyond. $6 per car, outbound only. Lots of at-grade areas to pull off and park.

This was a beautiful ride to the Sanibel island and added to the excitement of arriving. It's a lovely place to even spend the day if you don't prefer to go all the way to the island. Lovely sunsets.....

The road is in good condition. People seem to stop here for breaks, some even chill at the small beaches or fish here. I even saw people launching boats and jet skis from there.

Since they built it...$6 toll on Ft Myers mainland side...naturally no toll when you leave... Before such they had a ferry to the island
Can someone please tell me where you pay the toll? We never saw a toll booth and ended up with a fine.

I'm not sure how you would miss it since you can't go over the bridge without paying. There were two lines, one for the Sun Pass and the other for paying cash.
How do you pay for the causeway? Is there a cash line, credit card line etc.... Do you pay in quarters? Thanks.

For cars going to Sanibel is $6 and its cash only, unless you have a SunPass. If for any reason you don't have the money just stop and let the attendant know and they will bill you; it will cost you a few extra bucks.
