- WhereSanibel Island, Florida, USA
Beautiful well cared for Resort close to the beach. Beautiful grounds and very quiet. Gated community with great staff. By Eileen Gross
Located on beautiful Sanibel Island, the park is a 10 minute walk to white sandy beaches. The park hosts a mini zoo with parrots, lemurs and squirrel monkeys. For bird lovers, you can view upclose native birds and exotic species including toucans and macaws. You can visit the nearby Ding Darling nature reserve for more wildlife viewing and for water activities. Many secluded and shaded sites to choose from. There is a fee to cross the bridge to the island so be ready but where else can you stay in a RV rental like this?
The J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge is part of a larger complex that includes the Caloosahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, The Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge, Pine Island National Wildlife Refuge, and Island Bay National Wildlife Refuge. The 8,000 acres are mostly nesting and roosting islands. There are 245 birds that live in this refuge and there are many migratory birds that consider this a save passage, reptiles and mammals and many other endangered species such as the manatee can also be seen.
Visit one of the best shelling spots in all of Florida, the Blind Pass is a natural channel of water that separates the two islands, Sanibel and Captiva. It also joins the gulf with the bay. You can fish for species such as the tailing redfish or the snook. Since the Blind Pass faces the west you can view incredible sunsets from here.
