DATE: May 26, 2015

It’s that time of year again for summer vacations! This year, why not pack up the family and head to Sanibel Island, one of the best family-friendly travel destinations.

A Florida Island Town Like No Other

Sanibel Island is a town of beauty, charm, nature, and unique adventures… and no one knows this better than our employees here at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa! Here’s a glimpse into why we think Sanibel is such a desirable destination. BEST_82_

“Sanibel is a nature-lover’s dream.  Every day I see something new and exciting.” —  Donna,  Sales & Marketing Coordinator 


“Traveling by boat is the best way to see Sanibel’s natural beauty. This photo was taken on a boat rental from Port Sanibel Marina. The lighthouse is probably the most iconic sight for guests to visit on the island. It shows the careful thought and planning that is taken on Sanibel to preserve nature. Even though it is a man-made structure, it fits in seamlessly with the lush greenery, further complementing the island’s natural charm. If you’re looking for the best views of Sanibel, you can’t beat traveling by boat!”  — Emily, Owner Services Coordinator


“Rarely do we get storms on the Island, but when we do, the dark sky can light up the water to create an incredible scene. Such a beautiful sight to appreciate in addition to our famous sunsets.”  — Tiffany, Human Resources Coordinator

“There is a gentlemen that has been building amazing objects on the beach using only sand, seashells and other found items.  They are amazing and I do not think anyone knows who this phantom builder is!” —  Kevin, Director of Activities
