Pure relaxation on North Captiva Island

If you're hankering for some down time in the Sunshine State, but want to avoid the hustle and bustle of vacation hotspots like the Florida Keys, consider fleeing to North Captiva Island. Located just off the Gulf Coast, this barrier island is the very definition of tropical paradise, replete with blazingly white sands, turquoise waters, and gently swaying palm trees. North Captiva Island vacation rentals range from quaint cottages to luxurious beachfront condos, so you're sure to find your ideal homely getaway. And as the island is only accessible by boat or small plane, you've no need to fear hordes of spontaneous day-trippers ruining the tranquil vibe.

Things to do

Immerse yourself in local natural and cultural history

North Captiva island is gloriously undeveloped, so don't expect the colorful seafront amusements you'll find in many other Florida beach towns. But if you fancy a change of pace, the neighboring islands of Captiva and Sanibel offer plenty of arresting attractions. The Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum is home to a truly one-of-a-kind collection of exquisite seashells from all over the planet, including some of the world's biggest. Meanwhile, at the Sanibel Historical Museum and Village, you'll find a beautifully preserved collection of early 20th-century buildings, including a white clapboard general store and a quaint 1920s tea room.
