We spent a few blissful days in Captiva after we left Orlando. I had heard of Captiva and Sanibel Islands many times but had never been there myself until now. We stayed in a little beach villa, rented a golf cart, collected a million shells (the abundance of shells is unreal), visited Sanibel Lighthouse Beach, ate lunch at the highly recommended Bubble Room (so, so good), took a boat to Caya Costa, and mostly just relaxed. It’s a very slow pace there, and I loved that about it. Captiva is definitely on our “return to” list to do and see some of the things we weren’t able to fit in this time around!
