A world class destination, Captiva Island is a tropical barrier island located along the Gulf coast of Southwest Florida. Situated just 4 miles off the coast of Ft. Myers and at the northern tip of Sanibel Island, Captiva’s tropical ambiance is more Caribbean than Florida. Experience miles of unspoiled beaches, lush tropical foliage, exotic birds, incredible natural beauty, and gorgeous sunsets. Unwind and enjoy the laid back, island lifestyle without traffic lights, neon signs, high rise buildings, and fast food chains.
The year-round warm temperatures provide an endless array of activities from which to choose. Along with isolated, stunning white beaches, Captiva offers shelling, fishing, boating, sailing, biking, tennis, kayaking, bird watching, and walking trails. South Seas Resort, at the end of the island, is a private enclave featuring many of the same activities, all nestled within an internationally renowned resort. Just outside the resort’s gates lies Captiva Village, the heart of the island. It is here where the local restaurants and cafes, beach bars, shopping, jewelry and island clothing stores can be found. Everything on the island is accessible by foot, or bicycle and a car is rarely needed. This is among your best options if you're considering Florida condo rentals.
Less than ten minutes away is neighboring Sanibel Island. Here you will find over 20 miles of bike paths, two public golf courses, the J.N. “Ding” Darling Natural Wildlife Refuge, and some of the best shelling in the world. Besides the shopping scene, the island also offers a wealth of amenities including art galleries, live professional theater, great restaurants, cafes, and nightlife.
