A dog's guide to
Sanibel Island

Note: On September 28, 2022, Sanibel Island was heavily impacted by Hurricane Ian. As of November 15, the island remains closed to the public.

Voted one of the "Top 10 Best Florida Beach Towns" according to USA Today, Sanibel Island is located along the Gulf of Mexico renowned for its shelling, lighthouse, and glorious sunsets. We spent much of our early adult years exploring the natural wonders of these preserved shores. If you get the chance to visit, check out our favorite places.

we're glad these people like dogs

Getting Paws in the Sand

We love Sanibel Island because Sanibel Island loves dogs!

Dogs are welcome at all Sanibel beaches with no longer than an 8-foot leash. J.N. "Ding" Darling National Wildlife Refuge allows dogs on a 6-foot leash to walk on a number of the refuge's trails.
