Sanibel Island's Over 20 Miles Of Biking/Walking Trails!

With over 20 miles of mixed use trails, Sanibel Island is perfect for going for a walk or an extended bike ride. You can plan your whole day around a super fun bike ride. You can head out early and grab breakfast at your favorite restaurant and then head to any number of locations.

Maybe head to the Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge off Sanibel Captiva Drive. The Refuge consists of the main four-mile Wildlife Drive along with the four-mile Indigo Trail, the quarter mile Shell Mound Trail and the quarter mile Wulfert Keys Trail. There is also a Visitor's Center with lots of exhibits and even an interactive area for kids. At the Visitor Center there is an exciting Water/Ways traveling exhibit (a partnership with the Museum on Main Street program supported by The Smithsonian and Florida Humanities Council). Water/Ways will take a global look at water relative to the environment, culture, and history. This exibit is only there through December 7th, so try and add this to your schedule! Our world famous Refuge is a "must see" while you're on the island!
Or maybe to our historic Sanibel Lighthouse at the east end of the island. This is also one of our most popular beaches! You can look south and see Fort Myers Beach or to the east and see the causeway and Punta Rassa. This is a perfect place to check out the lighthouse and then enjoy our warm waters for a swim!

Sanibel historic village Or maybe ride to Sanibel's Historic Village (Located at 950 Dunlop Road off Periwinkle Way). Lots of history of our islands and some fun things to do. Many buildings were moved from original island sites and have been totally restored. This is a popular place for visitors and locals alike. Our island's history is fun to learn about, and having original homesteads and businesses makes it a fun learning experience. Check it out!
You could also just plan a "beach tour" and ride to all the public beach easements on the island. You can find a more detailed map Here.  Or a list of beach names and locations Here. We all love a day at the beach and this way you can check them all out! Some are better for shelling (depending on recent winds) while others are better for viewing sunsets. It's hard to argue with a plan to search for the best beach! What better way to spend your day? Sanibel Island beach map

As you ride or walk around the island you can pick your favorite area... and then put me to work! If you tell me just what you're looking for, I can find you your place in paradise! We have a super inventory of properties for sale and I'm sure we have just the right place for you, A home? A condo? Maybe a homesite to build your dream home? Call me today and I'll get to work. Make this your year for Sanibel and Captiva Islands!
