The Sanibel Arms Vacation Guide
5 Places To Visit On Sanibel Island
With 1,000 new people moving to Florida every day, it's clearly one of the most desirable states to live in and visit. In particular, Sanibel Island is one of the prime places in Florida for vacationers. The island was protected from Florida's development boom in the early 1960s by a strict building code, which has preserved 15 miles of pristine white sand beaches and ensured that only two buildings on the entire island exceed three stories in height. With 6,000 residents inhabiting the island year-round, this barrier island is a throwback to the days before Florida became such a hot tourism commodity, and still affords those breathtaking vistas and quiet beauty.
But with this whole tropical paradise at one's fingertips, what places should one make sure to visit on Sanibel Island? We've put together a list of five particularly worthwhile spots to check out.
