If you’re all about enjoying the outdoors, Captiva Island is the place to be. Near Fort Myers just off Florida’s Gulf Coast, this charming beautiful island known as "the island with no traffic lights" boasts sunshine year-round and a wealth of opportunities for activity—from biking to sailing, bird watching, golfing and much more. However, those looking for relaxing afternoons will have over 24 km of sugary white-sand beaches that are gently lapped by the warm, blue waters to enjoy; the beaches here are abundant with pastel-coloured seashells that are perfect for starting a collection. The island is also proudly environmentally friendly as it’s home to over 230 species of birds and a wildlife sanctuary. Plus, the hotels are never taller than the tallest trees on the island in order to preserve its natural beauty.
