We’ve compiled our top “fall for fall” reasons to visit us.
- Moderate Weather – It’s still plenty warm to enjoy the pools and the warm waters of the Gulf but the dead heat of summer is over.
- Quieter Beaches – This time of year of quieter for Florida travel than during the winter and summer. Enjoy less traffic, less wait time for local attractions and more space to spread out by the pools and beach!
- Less Shelling Competition – Sanibel is known worldwide for its amazing shelling and people travel from all over just to get a chance to scour our beaches for rare finds. Since the island is quieter in the fall, you’ll have less competition from other shellers and are more likely to score a great find for your collection.
- Outdoor Activities – The mild weather makes enjoying activities like bike riding, kayaking, paddleboarding, pickleball, tennis and more even more enjoyable! Even better, all of these activities are complementary to enjoy at Sundial!
- Wildlife on the Move – Fall is a great time of year to observe our winter wildlife moving in for the season. Spot visiting birds as they make their way south to avoid the cooler temperatures up north.
