Sanibel and Captiva Islands, on Florida's Southeast Lee Island Coast, offer visitors great natural beauty and respite from busy cities. Last October, Sanibel was ranked as one of the world's 20 best islands by Conde Nast Traveler .

Once you are off the mainland, you are immersed in the islands' greatest gifts- a luxurious peace, a slow pace and access to nature. The peaceful nights are so quiet you can hear the gentle lapping of waves upon the shore. Even a short vacation will seem wonderfully long because island life makes each moment precious and unhurried. Plus, Sanibel and Captiva abound with opportunities to enjoy nature, from shelling on the beaches to observing animals and plants in refuges.
