Things to Do on Sanibel Island
Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge
Bicycling the Trails
Bicycling. The network of paved recreation paths that run along the main roads in Sanibel make it so easy to get some exercise on the island.
If you don’t bring your own, rent bikes from Billy’s Rentals, which is easy to find on Periwinkle Way. The flat trails make it easy to pedal on the one-speed, no-hand-brake beach cruisers that are so popular here.
We recommend riding the bike to the eastern tip of the island, to the Sanibel Island Lighthouse. On the way back to the cottages, make a small detour and visit Pinocchio’s Italian Ice Cream – the owners learned their technique in Italy so you know it’s delicious!
Enjoy a relaxing, stress-free beach vacation at the incomparable Sanibel Cottages Timeshare Resort. Each unit has two spacious bedrooms. The unit sleeps 6 comfortably with a convertible sofabed in the great room in addition to the gigantic master bedroom with a king size bed and twin beds in the second bedroom. The master bath has an over-sized glass shower and a soaking tub. There is a full second bath as well.
Just 7 buildings make up Sanibel Cottages. Each building has 4 spacious units. The views from every unit is spectacular! The WIFI service is excellent and dependable. There is a flat screen TV in each room. Washer and dryer in the unit. Parking is in the covered garage on the first floor. Outdoor grills and outdoor eating areas are located at each building.
Sanibel Cottages is located on the southerly most edge of Sanibel Island. From our beach, we can enjoy both sunrises and sunsets! The property is meticulously maintained. This year our pool was completely renovated and is lovely. The bathrooms were renovated a few years ago and are elegant and roomy. Just in the last few months, all of the kitchens have been renovated with new cabinets, appliances etc. All the furnishings you see in these photos have been upgraded and replaced as well. The entire complex inside and out looks brand new.
Sanibel Cottages is centrally located on the island due south of Tarpon Bay. We are close to everything. Doc Ford's, Bailey's Ding Darling Wildlife Preserve, Sanibel lighthouse, restaurants and shops. Bike trails take you everywhere from our doorstep. Head to Captiva for the best key lime pie in the world (according to Gourmet Magazine and me!) at Key Lime Bistro.
A fun author to read while staying at Sanibel Cottages is Randy Wayne White. He was a fishing guide for 17 years out of Tarpon Bay and then began writing mysteries set in and around Sanibel. His main character is Doc Ford. Fun reads! He is also a partner in a restaurant chain in Sanibel, Captiva and Fort Myers named for his main character! Randy can frequently be spotted at Doc Ford's on Sanibel writing in a corner booth or at book signing events as he lives on the island.
My mouth waters just thinking about Yucatan Shrimp at Doc Ford's in Sanibel.
