Bay and Gulf views

The view is expansive and lots of beautiful water. Sailboats and cruisers all about. This is a 35 mph drive so take your time.

The old causeway was a little "dicey" and only 2 lane. When the hurricane took out the causeway a new one was built. The new causway is a very stable, wide and beautiful road into Sanibel.

Great views and places to pull off and park, if you want to go fishing ,swimming, picnic. there is a toll fee to cross the causeway but worth it if you plan on the whole day. Have camera for many wonderful pictures and sunsets.

The causeway is a lovely drive with great views on either side of the road. It is a nice way to enter the beautiful Sanibel island.

The causeway is a beautiful drive and actually could be a destination. There are two areas to stop and walk, picnic, or watch the sunrise/sunset. You are right in the middle of the water with a fabulous view. A place that is sure to lift your mood and make you appreciate Florida.

There is always something going on in and around the causeway. From fishing to bike riding and so many things in between. Seems like a fun place to relax and hang out.

It's such a fabulous panoramic view of Sanibel and the Gulf and the ICH. I never tire of going over this Causeway. So fun to see people wind surfing, and lots of beautiful boats!

If you can find a place to park, it's beautiful sand and waves we saw people fishing- didn't see them catch anything. It's a beach what else can I say.

The Sanibel Causeway connects Sanibel/Captive islands to the mainland of Florida. The Causeway traverses water and connects small sandy islands on its way to Sanibel. The toll for the Causeway is $6 on the way from the mainland to Sanibel. No charge in the other direction. There are places to stop for beach/fishing/boating off the Causeway. Bathrooms are available. Even... More

Must cross the Causeway to get to Sanibel. Lovely drive. Saw lots of people picnicking, fishing, and otherwise enjoying the Causeway on our trips to Sanibel and back to Fort Myers.
