beach bars on Sanibel? and a condo complex recommendation?

Wondering if there are any decent beach bars and their locations on Sanibel. (not Doc Fords type places but true beach bars)

CAn anyone recomend a condo complex on Sanibel within walking distance of beaches and restaurants?

Thank you

True Beach/Tiki bars are scarce on Sanibel/Captiva. Island Inn , Sundial Resort, and Casa Ybel have near beach bars. The Mucky Duck on adjacent Captiva is another choice.

Almost all condo resorts on Sanibel are on the beach, but many restaurants are on Periwinkle which is not really walkable from beach resorts. There are some places such the end of Tarpon Bay Rd. and some east end locations where restaurants are walkable.

I'm a Captiva person. Captiva Village is most walkable area, but a car ride to mant Sanibel attractions.

Sanibel has some wonderful beach bars:

Here are some that you may enjoy on Sanibel:

Sanibel Island Beach Resort - Tiki Bar

Casa Ybel Resort - (By their pool.)

Sundial - Turtles Pool & Beach Bar

Sanibel Inn

Condo Complex recommendations:

Adults: Sanibel Surfside - in easy walking distance of Sanibel Island Beach Resort Tiki Bar and some restaurants including Blue Coyote and La Bella Vita Ristorante.

Families with young children- Sundial and Pointe Santo for their on-site children programs.

If you Google these complex names you will find photos and helpful information.

And if you Google the restaurant names you can find menus.

Have a great time at the beach bars!

:)
