Do we need a car if we're staying at Sundail on Sanibel

We're wondering if there's an airport shuttle & we can ride bikes for the week?

There are so many wonderful places to see on Sanibel & Captiva that I would recommend a car. There are also great restaurants and Ding Darling, the Shell Museum, CROW that are pretty hard to visit without a car.

No shuttle but you can get limos to the islands. Car as suggested is really a must.

Also relating to your post about bike rentals, Sundial has bikes to rent as well so check out their rates and then compare with both Billy's and Finnemores (who seem to be slightly cheaper) and then decide.

Billy's book and reserve on line but Finnemores don't mention that.

There are no street lights on Sanibel so biking after dark is really not recommended. A car will definitely come in handy.

If you don't plan much time away from the resort, there are serveral car services available for the occasional trip after dark (mom used designated drivers a few times last month and was pleased with both the service and the price). Otherwise, we try to bike everywhere we can as well...even to Captiva (from our condo on west gulf).

We actually prefer to visit ding darling by bike rather than by car...always see much more when we do
