I parked my car by a "public beach" 1 car behind A big sign saying "no parking beyond this point". I assumed it was legal to park at that spot since I wasn't beyond the point specified by the sign. I came off the beach less than 2 hours later to find a $50 parking ticket on my windshield. Apparently... More

There's a certain excitement you can't help but feel as you crest the first bridge. Each landfall has a picnic/viewing/fishing area where a number of families can be found enjoying what the Sanibel Causeway has to offer. /Users/BrianandDebWarth/Desktop/IMG_4097 (1).jpg

As we were crossing the bridge, in mid-November, we saw a large pod of dolphins. We pulled over at the end of the bridge and took some photos of them; there was even a mother and a baby. They were very close to the bridge, on the Sanibel / Captive side. It was nice to see. There are also lots... More

A lovely place to stop for a short visit or all day. We were rvers so we would drive our Rv and stay all day. We would set up our chairs in the surf and relax, bringing our dogs with ! We no longer Rv but we still stop there, when in the area, just to relax with our toes... More

If you turn off to the right just before the tolls down towards the hotel you can park up and get a great photo of the bridge. As you approach the tolls you have 2 lanes on the right to accept cash & 1 on the right for automatic payment, $6 to cross worth every C in my oppinion 😊

It is $6.00, but after the bridge is paid for I hope the would at least reduce the price I am dreaming right. Nice drive on a well built road, we enjoyed the sites along the way,stopped for shopping and lunch

the bridge gets you on the island. I think the toll was $2. We were there off season and mid week and the interchange on the island was backed up with traffic
