“To get you excited on your way over”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

Very pretty view to get you all excited for entering Sanibel. It is $6 to drive over but no fee to return; but most say on Sanibel or Captiva to enjoy the beauty. What a paradise.

“Loved the Causeway...”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Such a feeling of anticipation as you drive across the Causeway toward Sanibel. There are beaches on either side for fishing and swimming. I even found a few seashells during our stop. And the parking is free. :)

“Good Views”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

The causeway to get on and off Sanibel Island is a decent enough cost $6 for a car and then of course it varies by axle. The views you can get though as you go across can be quite spectacular. There are also beaches along the causeway and they seem quite popular and always have a good crowd. I have never stopped at the causeway beaches but based on what i have seen as we drive across they would be worth checking out.

“Great $6 (toll) view”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

This bridge offers great views of the bay and an easy way to get to the island. There is a pull off area where you can stop and look fro the many dolphins in the area. Not really an attraction more of a bridge into the island.

“Takes Your Breath Away!”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

There is some sense of surprise and delight every time you come up to the Sanibel Causeway. The serenity and calmness takes over your spirit immediately, and you know that you are coming to a very special place. In reverse, when you leave the causeway, you find yourself making a promise to come back...don't forget...you know you want to be here again!

I won't say that the "new" causeway was a favorite development...the old causeway was more rustic in nature to where you were going...but, at least the good news is that it did not spoil the beauty of driving to Paradise...I promise I will be back soon!
