Located 10-15 minutes from Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island has lots of fun things to do! After paying a rather pricey toll charge of $6.00, we devoured a freshly caught grouper sandwich at Grandma Dots restaurant.
Located at a marina, it’s cute and casual!
Driving just a few minutes down the main drag, we arrived at the lighthouse beach and paid $4.00 for two hours of beach time! Today it was warmer…almost 80 degrees…so we took a dip in the ice cold ocean and went for a long walk on the beach!
These paddleboarders were fun to photograph!
I have to give credit to my husband for this photo…
Here’s the bridge we crossed to go back to Ft. Myers/Cape Coral…
Not all beaches are created equal…but I love them all!!

I was astounded to hear you paid to access the beach… I was under the impression that the beaches belonged to everyone…$4 for 2 hours beach time..?? also seems excessive… love the bridge… actually that was one of the things that fascinated me when I visited the USA.. the bridges
It is a pubic beach…not sure why you have to pay. We do have cool bridges!
I was shocked to read that you had to pay to access the beach! Did I read that right? Is it a private island?
I’m not sure why you have to pay. It is a public beach.
