In addition to having some of the finest coasts in the country, the island’s beaches are also famous for their remarkable shells. The beautiful, varied texture that this gives the beaches makes the atmosphere even more magical. The 22 miles of sand that surround the island ensure that you and your loved one can find plenty of secluded space to relax and enjoy the start of your life together as newlyweds.
There is more to Sanibel than just beaches, of course. The interior of the island has a beautiful nature reserve and wildlife refuge, which provides the perfect location for exploration under the balmy summer sun, and there are plenty of activities to enjoy after your wedding, including various water sports, such as fishing and snorkeling.
