A short drive from Fort Myers, Sanibel Island is justly famed for its sunsets, lighthouse, and luxurious resorts. Adjacent to a nature preserve that keeps it safe from over-development, Algiers Beach is a beautiful wide, flat, south-facing beach that is excellent for shelling. This beach is also a popular nesting site for loggerhead turtles! Shallow water and calm days (almost every day) make it a perfect place for swimming. Sanibel Island beaches are some of the most beautiful places to make memories with your family.
