Captiva Island rests in quiet privacy in the Gulf of Mexico, at the end of the road north of Sanibel Island.
It has become the preferred vacation destination (as well as permanent residence) for discerning Floridians and other well-informed travelers.
For Captiva Island offers what few other Florida beaches can: delightful accommodations in the midst of unspoiled, natural beauty.
Captiva Island is subtropical, and enjoys fine weather all year thanks to the moderating waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
The peaceful barrier island includes a wildlife sanctuary and miles of white sand beaches.
