Since its incorporation in 1974, Sanibel has established strict building codes to limit structures to a maximum of 3 stories; there are no traffic or street lights on the island. Over half of the island’s acreage is dedicated to wildlife preservation and conservation land, including the 5,OOO-acre J.N. „Ding“ Darling National Wildlife Refuge, a global treasure covering much of the east side of the island. Great white heron, egrets, osprey, pink roseate spoonbill and pelicans are among the abundant shorebirds making Sanibel their home.

Island residents and visitors alike enjoy the world-famous warm waters and powder white beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel is renowned for its superb shelling, which is among the finest in the world. The island is also a boater’s paradise with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, the Florida Keys, and Pine Island Sound, which invites exploration with its many seeluded, uninhabited islands.

A short ride over the causeway provides convenient access to Southwest Florida International Airport, University of South Florida, Barbara B, Mann Performing Arts Center and HealthPark Medical Center.
