Most people who visit Florida choose Orlando or Miami. However, the wisest travelers know of a well-kept secret that goes by the name of Sanibel Island. This tiny little tropical island is located in Southwest Florida. It’s a land covered with white sandy beaches and dotted with coconut palm trees. Some of the beaches offer the best shelling opportunities in the world. Actually, the shelling here is so popular that people from all over the world travel here for that reason alone.
If shelling isn’t for you, then don’t worry; there’s still a lot to do. Swimming in the crystal clear water is probably the most popular activity. However, other water-based activities include fishing, boating and canoeing. Sitting on the beach under an umbrella and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere isn’t bad, either.
If you prefer-land based activities, then you won’t be disappointed. Cycling is extremely popular here, simply because the paths are wide open and travel through nature areas and along the beach. Golfing and tennis are also available.
For those who prefer not to be too active, you can always go shopping, enjoy the wildlife refuge and bird sanctuary or watch a show at the local theater. Sanibel Island is also a popular location for weddings and honeymoons and should be strongly considered for either occasion.
