Sanibel Island has lots to do on a rainy day, on-island or nearby off-island.  You can:

  • Go to the movies at the Bailey Shopping Center
  • Go to the Bailey Matthews National Shell Museum
  • Lots of good shopping opportunities
  • See some of the great local art galleries
  • Read on your lanai and listen to the rain
  • Go to Doc Fords for food and ESPN sports
  • Take your umbrella, and go look for shells while nobody else is out there
  • Rent videos and stay in
  • Catch up on sleep!
  • Get a relaxing massage.
  • Wait an hour; it will stop soon.
  • Check the weather channel, sometimes it isn't raining a block away.
  • After the rain is over, play in the puddles
