A nice beach on the suthern part of the island, lots of possibilities to do some shelling or swimming and sunbathing.

Had a very nice time with friends on the beach near the lighthouse. We found a nice shady spot there. Tons of shells! There were some lovely little trails in the area as well. At dusk the biting midges attacked though. Out of our group of six, everybody had at least a few bites, but two of us were really bitten badly. It is excruciating! So be warned.

It's a so-so place with a fishing pier. Can't visit the lighthouse, can only view it. The structure is an unattractive metallic grid. There is a beach, but there are plenty of other nice ones on Sanibel. It's subjective, but I wouldn't be bothered to go out of my way again.

Here at the south end of Sanibel, you can park your car (they charge, though), and walk around this historic lighthouse, grassy area and beach. Nice place to visit and get away from it all.

Lighthouse is located near end of island and many shells are captured on the shore and shallow waters in this area.

Beach is beautiful and clean. Nice view for pictures. Lighthouse nothing too thrilling if you have seen any others. Nothing noteworthy. Parking $5.00 per hour to start......so pay and play

Thought thelighthouse was like Hatterss but it was not. Poor lighthouse keeper. Just a white house. Very small lighthouse.

This lighthouse is different from others. A large steel structure. Just one sign to read about its history.
A nice bike ride location. A park to stop and cool off with restrooms.
