Sanibel Island's Nature Haven

On a previous trip to Florida, we decided to visit the gulf coast for a change of pace from the intensity of South Beach to something more relaxing. Sanibel Island off the coast of Ft. Myers was the perfect solution to ditch the flashiness on South Beach and escape to a hidden paradise. Just 2 hours west of Miami, Sanibel has everything outdoorsy to offer from kayaking to lounging on the vacant beaches, to encountering wild animals within arms reach. A visit to the J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge was the perfect way to spend an afternoon post-beach to spot alligators, flamingos, and other wildlife in their natural habitat with no barrier to restrain them.
Check out our lucky finds while walking the nature trail on Sanibel Island.
