Owner description: The main street running through Sanibel Island is lined with shops, boutiques, galleries and cafes.

Several things to see lining both sides of the street, however it is a very busy thoroughfare and you almost get run over if you slow down to look. It is a fun drive from Sanibel to captiva.

Periwinkle Way is THE main road of Sanibel and Captiva Island. It's a wonderful slow drive through the islands where you pass the nature preserves, the beaches, all the shopping and eating places. Don't be in a hurry, top speed is 30 miles an hour.
A bike path runs alongside most of the road.

we expected this road after reading reviews of it as a small road with quaint shops along it, it turned out to be a busy road with trees either side, and clumps of shops along the road very hard to read signs as you drove by.

This road has lots to see. There are many small shops on both sides of the road. Only one chain restaurant on the island that being the Dairy Queen. Love the Dairy Queen. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and because of the speed limit you will not fly by something you like.

Pretty much everything you could need while on the islands is available on Periwinkle. Shopping of all sorts, restaurants. Nice to have it all in one place, although it was pretty busy even right before busy season. Luckily, a police officer was helping with traffic on one super busy intersection. Beware of the many bicycles and crossings for them! Glad the speed limit is only 35 so you can easily find the places you are looking for and can get into traffic, when having to cross it!
