Sanibel Island is a resort city just off the coast of Fort Myers, Florida. This barrier island was first settled in 1884, and after attracting a number of permanent residents, it was officially incorporated in 1974. Today, Sanibel Island is known for its attractive Gulf beaches that are known worldwide for their great shelling and for the beautiful wildlife refuge that encompasses half the island. A causeway connects the island to the mainland and a new high bridge was opened in 2007.
