Sanibel is known as a pristine island, inhabited by concerned citizens that have protected the island carefully. The island is located on the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of Southwest Florida, you can find beautiful beaches and world class wildlife reserves. Residents have controlled development and encouraged the preservation of the island's ecology since passing the Sanibel Comprehensive Land Use Plan in 1974. You won't find many buildings taller than two stories. Fast food and chain restaurants are banned, with the exception of Dairy Queen and Subway, which were on the island before 1974. You will encounter a community that has adopted a more organic way of life and surroundings that reflect this. Escape to Sanibel in a RV rental from a local Outdoorsy owner. Discover why so many bring their RVs to this area of Florida or cruise the coast yourself.
