Sanibel Island is a barrier island just off the southwest coast of Florida by Fort Myers. Sanibel is about 12 miles long and 4 miles wide, and is known around the world for its fabulous shelling beaches. Due to Sanibel Island's unique geographical orientation, lying East to West instead of North to South, it acts as a scoop and gathers seashells along its beaches. Throughout the year, thousands of visitors come to enjoy Sanibel's beaches and hunt for that special seashell. Sanibel has an average temperature of about 75 degrees. While Sanibel Island is a wildlife refuge in and of itself, over 60% of the island is protected wildlife preserves. There are over 26 miles of bike trails and over 17 miles of beautiful beaches.
