I checked all beaches on Sanibel and Captiva and my opinion is that Turner's is the best location to take picture of the sunset in May. Parking is limited so you need to get there before the crowd.

We popped in here after rolling over the Sanibel Bridge. There was a lot going on from an ocean perspective, waves, wind, sun shine. There is a strong current running under the bridge, due to an earlier storm, the water was murky, but it was...More

This is a beautiful beach just north of Blind Pass...between Sanibel and Captiva Islands in SW Florida. We arrived around mid-day and the parking lot was full except for one space; Christmas week is in full swing and Season hasn't started so this was considered...More
