Due to easy causeway access, Sanibel Island is a popular tourist destination known for its shell beaches and wildlife refuges. Bowman`s Beach is Sanibel`s most popular one with a beautiful coastline that also entices wind surfers and sailors. Sanibel`s natural surroundings are full of potential adventures which makes the J. N. `Ding` Darling National Wildlife Refuge is a must visit. By far, the most popular activity on Sanibel Island is shelling – you barely can walk a step on the beach without indulging in the so-called `Sanibel Stoop` to search for shells.
