We went to the beach about 2 weeks ago and I always enjoy the breathtaking views driving across the Sanibel Island Bridge in FL. This bridge is three miles long and you'll need to pay a $6 toll to enter the Island and there is not toll leaving the Island. There are two causeway islands between San Carlos bay and Punta Rassa where you can pull over and go for a swim, fish or simply relax with your favorite beverage or reading a book!   Sanibel and Captiva beaches have beautiful blue waters and white sands where you can find lots of amazing seashells. If you are visiting and want to live in this area give us a call to answer all questions you may have about the housing market. Let us help you to find your piece of paradise here in SWFL. 239-284-8637 Abby Stiller - Local Realtor with REMAX...
