Resort Activities


Biking is the best way for couples to explore Sanibel Island. At Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, we offer bikes as an amenity for all of our guests. Couples can ride together on our bicycles built for two or multi-seat surreys. There are also wide biking paths that venture throughout the entire island for safe and enjoyable travels together.



Paddle away in paradise in kayaks, available as a complimentary amenity for resort guests. We have both single and double kayaks in case you want to spend some time on the water together. Don’t forget to pack a waterproof camera because you will likely spot dolphins or even a sea turtle.


Sunset Strolling

After dinner, celebrate the end of your evening strolling hand-in-hand along the beach while enjoying the island sunset. Sanibel has some of the most enchanted sunsets you will ever see. There is no better way to bond than walking and talking barefoot on the beach.

Shell Picking

Collecting shells is a great way to take the memories of your staycation home with you. Sanibel is infamous for the buffet of sea shells that cover its shores. In fact, the island has over 250 different species of shells.


Island Attractions


Get out of the sun and head to Shop on Sanibel’s three unique boutique shopping strip locations. At Tahitian Gardens you can shop for retail, including, casual island-wear for men, clothing for women of all ages, island-appropriate footwear, handmade jewelry, home décor and fine jewelry. At the Village Shops you will find a full-service salon, locally-made bath and body products, trendy women’s clothing and exquisite artwork. For handbags, local artwork and doggy gifts, visit Shop on Sanibel’s third location, the Olde Sanibel Shoppes on Tarpon Bay Road.
