San Carlos Bay and Gulf of Mexico Access
Two very popular beaches located just after the toll booth on the spoil islands used to link Sanibel Island to the mainland. The causeway bisects San Carols Bay close to the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River allowing bay and Gulf access. The first of the two islands is referred to as Causeway A, the second Causeway B. You can pull your vehicle right up to the edge of the water at the Sanibel Island Causeway beaches. Florida Sunshine Survival Tips
Both islands offer an opportunity to enjoy a variety of activities including fishing, swimming, picnicking, canoeing/kayaking, windsurfing, kiteboarding, shelling, and sunbathing.
Causeway B is much larger than Causeway A, and it’s amenities include drinking fountains on both sides of the road, restroom facilities, and a few picnic tables. Grilling is permitted, and leashed pets are welcome, but visitors must clean up after their pets. There is also more shade available under the large Australian Pines on Causeway B than on Causeway A.
The Sanibel Island Causeway beaches are also a great place to watch dolphins.
No fee for parking. Leashed pets are welcome on Sanibel Island’s beaches providing you pick up after them. Please don’t bury pet waste…children like to dig in the sand as much as pets.
