Florida’s Captiva Island, sister to the larger Sanibel Island, is about 5 miles long and offers a friendly neighborhood lifestyle with many residents walking or driving golf carts along Andy Rosse Lane. The harbourside marinas provide a full range of water sports activities including kayak rentals, tour boats, fishing guides, parasail rides, and so much more. You’ll see some beautiful waterfront homes situated along the white sandy beaches where you can enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets.
The 2 Islands Gallery is a great place to find unique items created by local artists. Captiva Island’s Rauschenberg Residency is an artists' colony located on a 20 acre estate dedicated to the preservation of land, history, and the natural environment. Restaurants in the area boast unique and savory menu items like duck fingers, gator bites, and bubble bread.
Residents remain active in the community and discuss local issues at the Captiva Civic Association, which also houses the Captiva Memorial Library and an exhibit room hosted by the Captiva Island Historical Society.
