There is no feeling like when you start crossing the causeway to Sanibel. At the top of the arch the view takes your breath away. You get a feeling of peace and awe. This stretch of bridges are well tended and beautiful.

The view from our room was really nice during the day and night. Early morning although it was still dark. You can see people prepping to get on a boat. Thanks to their flash lights you could see movement and the lights on the boats....More

This roadway was a magnificent entry into Sanibel. The view from the high points of the bridges provided a great vantage point to look up and down the island coast. Lots of places to stop and have a picnic or just stop to enjoy everything.

The bridge provides lovely views as you approach the island especially at sunset. It will cost you $6 but go enjoy the island, the homes, the restaurants and mostly the beaches. You can't find better shelling.

Yes … it's a bridge to the mainland. Am surprised at how many people use the parking, beach areas for fishing, outings, picnics, swimming, sailing …. good use of public facilities/property.

Not a very long stretch of road, but is smooth sailing. The scenery is wonderful, though. There are Gulf coast beaches directly off of the Causeway to enjoy.

Not sure why anyone would want to. It’s a noisy bridge, after all.
