The Sanibel Lighthouse
The lighthouse stands on Point Ybel Light, or so it is known by the locals. This is perhaps the most photographed spot on Sanibel. The 104 foot light tower was requisitioned as early as 1833.  Fifty years later, the government declared the east end of the island a lighthouse reservation and in 1884 the lighthouse was completed.

The Beaches
Sanibel & Captiva are two of the most unique barrier islands in the world, having an east-west orientation when most islands are north-south. Hence, the island is gifted with great sandy beaches and an abundance of shells. Not to mention a fabulous place to watch the sunsets!

Chapel By The Sea
Built in 1901 by first settler William Binder as a school house, Captiva's charming Chapel by the Sea is a white clapboard church and currently serves as the site of many beautiful weddings. Trimmed in lattice fencing, the seaside cemetery next door guards the graves of many early settlers who came to Captiva in the late 19th century to homestead & farm.
