Captiva Island is my happy place. While it’s closer to my home than other beach destinations by boat, it’s actually much further away due to the roadways! It’s two (short) bridges away, but it ends up being about an hour or so drive. It is SO worth it no matter what distance you’re traveling though! There is something about Captiva Island that is…captivating? It has the charm of a Florida beach town but the amenities of a beautiful resort thanks to South Seas Resort. With restaurants and hotel rooms available, South Seas is the perfect place to stay so that you can enjoy everything this beautiful island in southwest Florida has to offer.
5 Things to Do on Captiva Island
1. Enjoy the beach and go shelling. My favorite part of the beach on Captiva Island is actually on South Seas Island Resort’s property. I used to work part time for a photographer and saw many weddings get photographed on this beautiful stretch of sand called Sunset Point. It is the very tip of the island, so there’s water all around you.
