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.
This is always a wonderful stop any time of day. I particularly love it near sunrise and sunset. Many beautiful pictures have been taken here. Also if you are there at low tide I use to find some really nice shells. I found it worth...More
We stayed in Captiva for 5 nights and it was dark when we first went across the causeway. We disinterested leave Captiva or Sanibel for 5 days but when we did it was a beautiful afternoon crossing over the causeway. It provided a beautiful view...More
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.

The Sanibel Causeway is a causeway in Southwest Florida that spans the San Carlos Bay, connecting Sanibel Island with the Florida mainland in Punta Rassa. The causeway consists of three separate two-lane bridge spans, and two man-made causeway islands between them. The entire causeway facility is owned by Lee County and operated by the Lee County Department of Transportation. The entire causeway is three miles long from end to end, and currently has a $6 toll in effect for island-bound vehicles only. The bridges are not individually named, and are simply referred to as bridges A, B, and C.
It has only closed one day back in 2003 for repairs.
