Take a trip to Sanibel Island if you like pretty sunsets and luxurious resorts.
Change things up with these side-trips from Sanibel Island: Matlacha Community Park (in Matlacha), Captiva Island (Captiva Memorial Library & Captiva Chapel By-The-Sea) and Cape Coral (Wicked Dolphin Rum Distillery, Boat Tours & Water Sports, &more). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Bowman's Beach, stroll through Bonita Springs Public Beach, identify plant and animal life at J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge, and look for gifts at Bailey's General Store.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Sanibel Island trip itinerary builder app.

Columbia to Sanibel Island is an approximately 12-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Columbia to Sanibel Island. Traveling from Columbia in June, expect Sanibel Island to be a bit warmer, temps between 91°F and 74°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
