Very nice beaches. The sand is not as powdery as Fort Myers Beach but it is still nice, and very peaceful. Good spot for shelling too!

Went out with Jim Burnsed- had a great time. Unfortunately a storm the week before was making the fish a little shy. But we did manage to hook up a couple of small sharks. Thanks Jim for a great day.

We took our boat from Sanibel and went to Cabbage Key and on the way back we stopped at North Captiva. We found a secluded place to beach, but it is very shallow and you have to pay attention. It is a great place for people who like to shell, but don't like crowds. The Captiva side of the pass is as far as you can go and is less crowded than other areas, Good shelling as the tide goes out. Bring wine and watch the sunset.

Once you are there it is one of the most pristine, quiet and relaxing beaches I have ever been to. The more remote and quieter one I have been to is Little Cayman BWI.

Great place - fished a ton here as a kid, lots of snook, reds, lots of fish in general.... And shelling?? Yeah descent place to shell too (if you are into that kind of thing- I grew up doing it so it's really not much of a thrill for me.)
