“My favorite beach including both Sanibel and Captiva, by boat or car!”
Review of Captiva Beach

Captiva Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 April 2018

This beach is absolutely beautiful! Quiet, private and serene. Plan to arrive by 10am - 12 noon to get a parking spot. $5 per hour. Porta-potties nearby the beach. No dogs allowed. The best water and sand around. Less crowded than other beaches nearby. Turner Beach is a close second and you'll come upon that beach first. Turner Beach has better shelling. The most beautiful islands in the world - Sanibel and Captiva!

We drove over the bridge and arrived around 10:45. There was no parking anywhere for the beach. A huge disappointment and waste of time with small children!

Awesome sunsets. Took 2 hour walk and only passed 3-4 people. Good shells. Road runs right along beach for lots of shoreline

Great place to spend a day parking is cheap if you have the Lee County tag but not bad otherwise. No vendors where we were but thats OK !

This was so beautiful, gorgeous white sand, lapping waves, brilliant blue sea. We hadn't take anything to shade ourselves & it was really hot, we'll know for next time
