Sundial’s National Seafood Month Celebration

DATE: October 13, 2014

October is a month of culinary celebration, and we aren’t talking about Halloween treats– it’s National Seafood Month! This month-long celebration was created in support of the nation’s seafood market and the overall health benefits of seafood consumption.

We are seafood-lovers, here at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa! And you won’t find better or fresher seafood than what is served along the Gulf Coast shores of Sanibel Island.
