Another day, another accolade for our pristine island paradise!, in partnership with Virgin Holidays, has named the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel Island “Florida’s Best Kept Secret.” states that Sanibel Island is a relaxed island paradise that’s perfect for discovering pristine beaches, outdoor adventures, and amazing wildlife—and we would have to agree!

Though our neighbors in Fort Myers and Captiva were also mentioned, here’s what the writers had to say about our very own quaint barrier island of Sanibel:

“The geography of the island is also unique as the tides of the Gulf of Mexico wash up hundreds of shells each day. This means shelling is a popular pastime and those who partake in gathering these beautiful shells develop what is fondly known as the ‘Sanibel Stoop’. And holidaymakers can walk for miles discovering different shells at every turn on beaches including Blind Pass Beach and Lighthouse Beach Park.”

Now that the secret is out, it’s the perfect time to visit our beautiful island. Also, summertime visitors will experience what locals call “the offseason,” a time where crowds are thin, traffic is non-existent, and restaurant reservations are unnecessary. Summer is a great time to explore, shell, and soak up the sunshine.
