My husband and I are thinking of traveling to Sanibel for our baby-moon (I'll be 16 wks pregnant). We've never been there. It seems like Oct will still be nice and warm, and the island seems pretty accessible to the airport. We would rent a car. It would be a Thur-Mon.
We would mostly be interested in relaxing, swimming in the ocean, seeing or swimming with dolphins in the ocean, seeing birds or other wildlife.
It would be great to stay somewhere where we can go around barefoot all day, have a cheap or included breakfast, and have a comfortable place to lay around during the day outside and/or with an ocean view. We'd want a dvd player so we could watch movies at night. We'd want a king bed. We do NOT need anything particularly fancy, and we do not need a pool.
Do you have any suggestions for places to stay? I am looking through the top rated hotels on here and see some great options. Is there one that would be particularly good for our interests (especially for easy safe swimming - my husband will want to swim for exercise - and likely dolphin spotting)?
Thanks for any ideas!
