Hotels in Captiva Island
As you drive northwest along Sanibel Island, the land gradually gives way to the sea. By the time you reach the ‘Tween Waters Inn on Captiva, there's nothing but a slender spit bordered by the Gulf of Mexico on the west and Pine Island Sound to the east.
The 330-acre resort has a daily cruise to Cayo Costa, a nature preserve with knockout beaches and an inlet where you can see manatees.
In addition to free bike rentals, the property has a range of accommodations—from a five-bedroom house (a.k.a. the Love Shack) to a cozy en suite room decked out in Old Florida florals and whitewashed antiques.
