Surfrider Beach Club in beautiful Sanibel Island is a true tropical gem on Florida's southwest coast, where the warm azure waters of the Gulf of Mexico lap lazily on white-sand beaches. It's the ideal vacation destination for couples and families looking for a low-key, beachfront getaway where the pace is slow–they call it "island time"–and the folks are friendly. One- and two-bedroom suites feature full kitchens and baths, master bedrooms, separate living and dining areas and balconies or porches where you can enjoy the gently Gulf breezes.
Breaking waves and the distant sounds of seagulls are your wake-up calls in this island paradise. Join shell collectors at dawn to discover the overnight deposits left by the sea, then let your cares melt away beneath the shimmering sun along pristine white sand beaches. Spend your day playing in the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico, or take a break from the beach with a game of tennis or a dip in the pool. Rent a bike from the resort to explore the island ,or ride into town for an afternoon of shopping and dining at charming outdoor cafes. When you return, enjoy a relaxing soak in the hot tub, take a front-row seat on the beach to view one of Sanibel Island’s most prized attractions–its magnificent, fiery sunsets.
Note: This resort has limited availability and requires a full-week stay with check-in on Saturday.
