Captiva is awesome 5/25/2005

My husband and I visited last year about 1 1/2 months after hurricane Charley. We actually stayed on Fort Myers beach but spent about 90% of the time on Captiva.What a place! Even with the destruction apparent it was still beautiful. The water was clear and warm. The beaches also VERY clean. Lots of seashells-Lots of wildlife. Even my husband who grew up in the panhandle was all about the time we spent there. I can tell you we are taking our family vacation there this year. The only draw back was the parking which is none. If you have the chance visit you WILL NOT be disappointed. Pros: Clean, Not crowded , Very natural beach Cons: parking more

Pros: quiet, romantic, scenic more

Paradise Found 6/24/2004

Sanibel and Captiva was once a hidden paradise back 30 years ago and now it has been discovered and loved by many. From the moment you begin to cross the three mile causeway to Sanibel, reality is left behind. The wildlife is amazing and fishing is incredible. For the shopper, you will find many tastefully appointed shops all along Sanibel and at the North end of Captiva. Most all the restaurants are very good. My favorite has always been Bubble Room and for casual dining the Mucky Duck or Lazy Flamingo. If you are looking for a place with lots of night life you will not find it here. What you will find is an escape from reality. A calm surreal feeling will overtake you while watching the sunset as porpoise swim in the foreground. This is truly paradise found. Pros: Dining, Shelling, Relaxing more

A small piece of Paradise (off season) 5/28/2004

Captiva can be very nice. In the Summer, it is hot and the waters are bathtub warm. In the Winter, the weather is close to perfect and the waters are a bit too cool to be swimming in, IMHO. During the Summer, the crowds are gone and you can get about rather easily, but during ""Season"" (Winter), the crowds and traffic are horrendous. Shelling is normally very nice and the waters can be nice, unless there is a good breeze blowing. We get ""Red Tide"" down here (I live in Cape Coral) about twice a year, and it lasts about 2 weeks or so (and you don't want to be down during that time). Red Tide is unpredictable. Pros: Nice beaches, Shelling, Gorgeous sunsets Cons: , No see 'ums, Muggy in the Summer more

CAPTIVATING!!! 5/21/2004

This is the most beautiful island I have ever seen, the restaurants are FABULOUS-Chadwick's is a must as well as the Mucky Duck and Bubble Room-Finest shelling around-what fun it is to see what treasures will wash up on shore! Pros: scenery, shelling, nice people more

awesome island 5/21/2004

I found Captiva and Sanibel Islands to be one of the most relaxing places I've traveled to. I've been around the world, and Captiva/Sanibel are some of the best. The scenery is awesome. The food and people are great, and some of the best Key Lime Pie I've ever had is at the Key Lime Bistro. Make the effort to visit these locations Pros: scenery, romance more

Tommy Bahamaville! Peace-Renewal-FUN! 5/21/2004

Wow! This is our Hawaii without mountains, crowds, long flight for 16 trips. Park at South Seas Resort -take a trolley to the end of the island or walk it (3 miles). Take Lady Chadwick boat watching Manatees in the Marina and dolphins swim along side to a Chesseburger in Paradise at Cabbage Key or to Useppa where Tarpon Fishing nets $400,000. JN Ding Darling Preserve. A paradise to sit back sip your favorite drink and then don't forget Naples as one of the most beautiful cities in the world for a return to civilian life with the rich and famous. Often weather on Islands is better than mainland as it's about 12 miles in the Gulf. We visited Caribbean a few years ago and it was horrible, 37 miles of slums and filth on St. Maarten - Never again! Captiva is it - Ummm Tommy Bahamaville! Pros: Relaxing & Serene, Clean and Safe, Fun Loving more

Amazing 5/21/2004

I have been going to Sanibel Island since I was 2 years old. It is the most wonderful, relaxing, friendly place you could ever hope to be. There are amazing restraunts ( the Mucky Duck on Captiva, and Cheeburger Cheeburger and Motzaloonas on Sanibel are some of my personal favorites), wonderfull beaches, and best of all some of the nicest people you could hope to meet. There are also some great shops, and they are one of a kind, the Islands have not been disturbed by Wal-Marts or department stores, they are locally owned and opperated. Sanibel and Captiva are great get aways from the hassle of everyday life, and there is entertainment and fun to be had for all ages. The Sanibel Siesta complex is one of the nicest places to stay on the Island. Pros: Beaches, People, Food Cons: , "noseems" (bugs), gas prices more

LOVE'N CAPTIVA 8/7/2003

Captiva Island is a quaint, scenic vacation spot that is the eastern coasts Hawaii. Its beautiful atmosphere and scenery, great white (yet shelly) beaches, and top rate restaurants ( The Mucky Duck and R. C. Otters-among the best anywhere) make this vacation resort a must to go to. Everything is walking distance and a short drive to Sanibel, Fort Myers, Naples, and the Everglades. There is a top rate golf course on the island, tennis courts, and a marina. The seclusion of the island allows for siteings of wildlife, such as manatees(whom are sometimes seen swimming along with people near the shore). Everyone should visit Captiva Island once in their life Pros: Restaurants, Scenery, seclusion Cons: heat more

magical 7/31/2003

This was a beautiful and memorable spot. Could bring a bottle of wine and a blanket down to the beach and not see another soul. Very romantic and secluded. A quaint and cozy get-a-way. Pros: quaint, romantic, beautiful Cons: no nightlife more

Captiva Captivates! 8/15/2002

Raving about Captiva's tranquility, beauty and lush tropics doesn't give it any justice unless you go and experience it. Next May will be my 14th year in a row vacationing down on Captiva and I wouldn't trade it for anything! Captiva is my antedote for civilization!!!!! Pros: shelling, great restuarants, nature Cons: no seeums, no seeums, no seeums more

CATCH A RAY OF SUNSHINE 6/28/2002

I USE TO WORK IN SANIBEL ISLAND AT MANGO BAY BEACH COMAPNY AND GO TO THE BEACHES ON CAPTIVA ISLAND EVERY WEEKEND. I NOW LIVE BACK UP NORTH. I WILL NEVER FORGET HOW BEAUTIFUL AND TRANQUIL THE ISLAND IS. MY DREAM IS TO BE THERE AGAIN. Pros: GOOD FOOD, TRANQUIL, BEAUTIFUL more

My Favorite Beach 6/26/2002

Captiva Island is one of th emost beautiful, relaxing beaches I have ever visited. The sand is soft and white, the shells wash up on the shore intact, and occasionally dolphins (and manatees) will swim right by you in the water! more
