The Gulfside City Park Beach, also known as Algiers Beach, is a long stretch of shell filled sand along the Gulf of Mexico. There is a park as well as the beach, and their numerous features give you the best of both worlds.

The Park:

  • The park is a popular dog walking area but it’s essential your pooch is kept on a leash. Cleaning up after them is a must.
  • There’s a bike path in the park that leads you to an old pioneer cemetery.
  • There’s a picnic area and lots of nature trails, so you can muster up an appetite with some running or bicycling and then enjoy a meal in the park.

The Beach:

  • The beach is also dog friendly but again, cleaning up and leashing your pet are essential.
  • Like many other beaches in Sanibel, this beach is filled with beautiful, pastel coloured shells and starfish.
  • Because of its central location, the waters are shielded from strong currents. This makes for good swimming conditions.
  • Barbecue grills are available.
  • A lot of visitors consider this the best beach in Sanibel.
