‘Tween Waters Inn
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 playful, low-key vibe of the resort, where accommodations range from beachfront cottages to traditional hotel rooms and studio apartments, is embodied by the resident mascots: racing crabs that compete Mondays and Thursdays in the Crow's Nest restaurant. From the marina, guests can rent any number of watercraft including kayaks, canoes, and fishing charters.
