Sanibel And Captiva Chamber Of Commerce And Visitors CenterCurrently Closed
When people visit Florida, two of the most popular get-aways are the beautiful little islands of Sanibel and Captiva. Both, with their own alluring charms, are filled with restaurants, shopping centers, natural beauties and other forms of entertainment. But how do people, especially new comers, find out the hot spots? The restaurants that play life music? The places you can get cool discout coupons? You don’t have to look further than the Sanibel and Captiva Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Center.
Sanibel Island is known for its soft white sands peppered with pastel coloured shells. It attracts sports aficionados thanks to its numerous tennis courts, bike paths, canoes and water sports. Nature lovers are attracted to its wild life refuge and shell museums. It’s perfect for family vacations and other wholesome events that deserve to be made special.
Captiva Island is filled with mystery, with a history that includes pirates, conquistadors and Calusa Indians. It’s smaller than Sanibel and the two are connected by a small bridge at Turner Beach. If you take a drive down Captiva Drive, you’ll see cactus and flowers and ‘downtown’ Captive, which is more of a pretty little village.
The Visitors Center is the perfect place to find out all kinds of information about these two islands, their beaches, restaurants, cultural offerings, sporting spots and lots more.

Camped at Periwinkle Park and RV. Loved it, beautiful. One thing that confused us and was a little frustrating was where to walk on the bicycle trails. We were always taught to walk against traffic, whereas the guidelines we just happened to see, says you should walk with and not against bicycle traffic. Is this rule of thumb (walking against traffic) different when it comes to bicycles? If so, this should be made known when you enter the island to avoid possible risk of injury to either pedestrian or bicyclist.
The volunteer Ken was extremely helpful and kind. Gave us all sorts of ideas. Thanks so much.
Very helpful and lots of coupon/ info books!
The welcome center is located at the entrance to Sanibel Island and easy to spot on the right side. Unique colorful building with a large island map outside, ample parking. The staff was friendly and helpful, and very patient. Clean restrooms and many brochures.
People is super friendly, everything clean
