    Sanibel Shell Festival

    by easterntrekker Written Mar 10, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is the first time I attended this historic event . It was wonderful. Some amazing art in shells as well as rare specimens on display from all around the world. Lots of opportunities to buy some wonderful shells and shell art.

    go biking

    Sanibel has bike trails all through the island. There are several places to rent bikes. We brought our own. You need to observe all traffic rules, but the paths are well laid out and easy to navigate.

    Mini Golf

    by janiac Written May 1, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We went to a nice mini golf place (can't remember the name again, sorry -- I think it was Smugglers Cove or something like that, but they have little alligators you can feed as a clue of which one it is.) The kids enjoyed this and it was relatively close to Sanibel in Fort Myers Beach

    Shelling Early In The Morning

    by al_mary Written Sep 21, 2005

    0 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sanibel has some of the best
    shelling in the world ....
    We normally go out right at sun
    rise, about 5:30 AM to get the
    best shells before the tourist
    get out around 8 AM ....
