“Something For Everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is a very fun place to shop. To really good T-shirt shops. The Blue Giraffe restaurant is really good. The most fun shop for me is the Sanibel Olive Oil Company. This place has some many variety's of olive oil and balsamic vinegar. They have and aged balsamic that is to die for. What also is great is that they let you sample what ever you want. Small cubes of bread with a tooth pick. The habanero olive oil is outstanding. They also have unusual shops also. You can check out there web site also.

yogibearillinois,

We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your visit to our shops and to The Blue Giraffe. The samples at Sanibel OIive Oil are definitely a plus, but so is taking home a bottle to use when you get home, yum!

Thank you for coming by and taking the time to write us a review.

“Some nice shops, shade and parking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

If you get tired of the sun and beach, this is a nice place to stroll around. They have art, t-shirts, jewelry and clothing in a variety of shops. There are areas to sit and relax if you don't' want to go in the stores plus a nice parking lot since parking is hard in Sanibel.

“Nice shopping”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Some really cute shops for island shopping. Very quaint. Her sports closet is a great boutique with Lilly Pulitzer and escapada among other resort brands. Everyone was friendly and welcoming.

“Nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014 via mobile

It's a nice outdoor shopping area. Most are island stores where you can get souvenirs. A couple known stores like Chico's and Fresh Produce. It's worth going.

“Pleasant and quaint”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

Shops sprinkled about and somewhere to eat. A lot of the shops definitely geared towards women and a lot of stuff that you could get elsewhere, but you're not in Sanibel for shopping. You should be here for some food and the beach.
