Luckily I was the passenger when we drove the causeway. It is beautiful. The park is very nice and there are mini oasis’s on each side of the road. If you have the time stop at the beaches. Worth the $6 toll

I'm not sure why this is an attraction but it is one big bridge. It gets very high in spots and has a nice place in the middle to park, fish, picnic and even camp?

Too bad you can not buy a weekly toll pass - as we would then use it more but the views especially at sunset are wonderful and there are a lot of areas where you can stop and park to watch.

It's always good to have a "heads up" when you are going to encounter toll booths, otherwise you may not have the cash on you, etc. But, I read ahead and noted the toll was $6 to get on to Sanibel Island, but no toll...More

Causeway was easy to get over, coming and going. Spent a day on the beach right off the causeway. Easy to park car close to water.

This was such a beautiful cross-over into Sanibel! We stopped at the park (1/2-way through) and let the kids play for a bit on the beach. Very calm and hardly no crowd at all. There is a $6 cash toll for every entry.

Be prepared to pay $6.00 everytime you come to Sanibel. The view is nice, parks are nice too. But it's a hassle.

While visiting Florida and staying in Ft. Myers Beach, we decided to drive to Sanibel Island. It was one of the high points of our trip! The day was gorgeous and the island was so beautiful and relaxing. The slow pace was most welcoming, and...More

We noticed this spot after coming back from Sanibel Island. We stopped along there and went shelling and just to relax. Nice, clean bathrooms and no crowds. Great place to see the sunset too plus free parking.

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