“Extremely Over-rated”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We recently vacationed on Sanibel for the first time in early Sept and are so disappointed with the whole place. The first hour on the beach we were eaten alive by sand fleas called "no-see-ums" and itched horribly the rest of our vacation. All the information we read certainly down plays this nasty fact of life.
Secondly it was so hot and humid with no Gulf breeze it was too uncomfortable on the beach. We couldn't even sit on our lanai at night because of the heat & humidity. You sweat just sitting there! Not fun!
And every single PUBLIC beach, you had to pay $2/hour! That is a little much! The prices on the island everywhere are ridiculously high for everything and then to have to pay to get on a PUBLIC beach. There are so many other places to get on public beaches without paying a cent.
I know we are in the minority in not liking Sanibel, but we would definitely NOT recommend vacationing here.

“Best shelling”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We went here two afternoons in a row. This is by far our best shelling from the trip. We would get out in the water about knee deep and catch the shells as they rolled back out to sea. There are no bathroom facilities nor places to wash your feet.

“Great place for shelling and fishing”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

This was the first time that we visited this hidden beach place, and it was truly a wonderful place for both adults and children. Our kids picked so many unbroken colorful shells to bring home. There are places for all vacation's beach events: fishing at a small rocky pier or under the bridge, swimming and shelling at the sandy shore on other side of the pier (water is much clearer and calmer). The only catch is you will have to pay for $7 toll fee to cross the main bridge from inland to get here. Parking spaces are also limited so you should go early in the morning if you don't want to walk much to it.

“Shells, shells and more shells”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

A first blush, you would think this place has been picked clean. Not so. The tides, the seasons and the surf are always bringing some new treasure to this well known and populated spot. Just keep looking a little longer. There in there!
