Why You Should Plan a Winter Escape to Sanibel and Captiva Island

The weather outside is delightful in Southwest Florida, which is why many plan their annual winter escapes with Kingfisher Vacations this time of year. While you may not be sick of the snow quite yet, when the blistering cold of January and February hit the north, the season can be ruthless and unforgiving. While staying in Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel or Captiva Island, you’ll enjoy the beautiful, warm sandy beaches, easy access to farmers markets, and a variety of art fairs. Here’s why planning your vacations to Southwest Florida during winter is a must!

Stay Active Outdoors

Once you step off the plane you’ll feel that warm breeze you’ve been waiting for, so why not make it an every day feeling while you’re here? There are many outdoor activities to enjoy near our Sanibel and Captiva Island rentals. Stay active on the 26 miles of bike paths around Sanibel Island, go shelling on the beaches, take a Captiva Island cruise, try a new water sport with YOLO, or discover the J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. Visit our Area Guide page to learn about outdoor Sanibel activities and things to do in Captiva Island.

Pro Tip: We offer kayaks, bikes, board games and wiis for your entertainment, if we don’t have what you’re looking for you’ll find Sanibel and Captiva Island rentals at www.islandrentalservices.net.

Explore the Arts

Southwest Florida is known for a variety of annual festivals that take place throughout the winter months. Don’t miss out on the Art Walks in downtown Fort Myers River District every first Friday of the month. Along with the Art Walks, don’t miss out on the Music Walks that happen each third Friday in the same district. We’ll give you a small sample of the upcoming arts festivals to check out while staying in our Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva

While staying in our Fort Myers Beach, Sanibel and Captiva Island rentals, you’ll find something almost every day!
