Sundial Beach Resort & Spa Wins Best Waterfront Dining in Southwest Florida

DATE: August 14, 2015

The Florida Legislature gave the Sunshine State its nickname in 1970. As the third most populated and one of the fastest growing states in the nation, it is increasingly attracting visitors who want to explore its nearly 1,200 miles of coastlines and 662 miles of beaches.

The best way to sample the splendors of living the good life in the sunshine by the beach is at Sanibel Island’s Sundial Beach Resort & Spa. And it’s no wonder. Florida’s full-service luxury resort won first place in last month’s 2015 News-Press 25th Annual The Best of Southwest Florida reader contest for The Best Waterfront Dining.

More than 400 people attended the ceremony late last month when Sundial Beach Resort & Spa also won first place for Best Staycation (for the second year in a row).

Diners at our restaurants can enjoy panoramic views of the Gulf and can have breakfast, lunch or dinner from the dining room or outdoor terrace overlooking the beautiful blue waters. Sundial’s restaurants are open to the public.
