Best sunrises/sunsets in area from Causeway, can park car on either side of two middle islands separating Sanibel from mainland. Also good fishing

If you are going to Sanibel - plan to stop on the causeway with a packed lunch and refreshments - there is a bathroom there but no other services.

The perfect place to watch the sunset after a beautiful day on Sanibel Island.
From the cottage, drive as if you are leaving the island, but stop short of the final bridge. You can turn around or cross the highway at several places. You will see what I mean about the sunsets!!!! You will never forget them.

Watch the sun rise or set from on of the islands. Meet Roy out on the islands and rent a kayak, learn to paddle board, windsurf or kitesurf.

Beautifully designed - elegant engineering and close to the cottage - best of all if you go straight you can avoid Periwinkle traffic to go the round about way the locals use to easily get to the cottage - a huge reason we purchased our cottage on the east end. Go Easter morning for Sunrise service - go on full moons to watch with the other gazers and if NASA ever brings back launches - this was the place to view them (also any meteorite showers) and Sanibels low light laws make the island practically invisible at night - better for sea turtles and star gazing.

The causeway connects Sanibel to the mainland. Provides views of Ft. Myers and the intercostal waterway. A nice approach to the island.

The Sanibel Causeway connects the beach communities of Sanibel and Captiva Islands with the city of Fort Myers. The causeway actually hops from one small island to another and each of the islands has beaches that are popular with fishermen and swimmers. The drive is phenomenal as you're likely to sea Dolphins leaping in the water at any second.
