What Makes Sanibel Island A Great Place To Vacation?

When most people think of visiting Florida for a vacation getaway, they probably imagine staying in vacation condominiums in Miami or Sarasota. Yet vacation rentals on Sanibel Island are among the most charming vacation opportunities available. But what is it that makes Sanibel Island, specifically, such an appealing destination? We've compiled five reasons for you here.

  • South Florida enjoys a very favorable climate year-round, with temperatures in the low 80s during the summer and the high 60s during the winter season. This alone puts Sanibel Island in a league of its own in terms of having a comfortable climate that welcomes vacationers during any season.
  • So why choose Sanibel Island over Miami? Miami, with its constant commotion, large tourist population and urban sprawl, sometimes feels like a return to that which one hoped to vacation away from. By contract, Sanibel Island was protected from Florida's development boom in the early 1960s by a strict building code, which has prevented any building (save for two, built before the code) from exceeding three stories in height.

  • The building code has also preserved 15 miles of pristine white sand beaches, and only 6,000 residents inhabit the island year-round. This makes it a great vacation getaway for people seeking an escape from the commotion of day-to-day life.
  • Sanibel Island is decongested, with 0 traffic lights and a minimum of traffic and noise pollution.
  • Beachfront condos are a much-beloved feature of Sanibel Island, with weekly condo rentals available with oceanfront rentals directly on the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel Island vacation condominiums offer the best of Sanibel Island fishing, bird watching, and the historic Sanibel Lighthouse, all noted attractions to experience on the island.

No matter how you slice it, Sanibel Island's vacation condominiums are delightful places for a seaside getaway. Come check it out the next time you have the chance to take a vacation. Leave us comments and feedback below.
