While you enjoy your vacation at Tropical Winds Motel & Cottages, its natural that you’ll want to get out and explore our beautiful islands. Your Hosts are well equipped to make some great recommendations that will help you take advantage of all that Sanibel and Captiva have to offer. At the eastern tip of Sanibel is the historic, still functioning Sanibel Lighthouse. Built and first lit in 1884. A dedication to the arts is apparent at every turn and has lead to many calling Sanibel the “Island of the Arts.”
Sanibel has wonderful shopping opportunities! Spend an afternoon cooling off while you “shop in a park”. The 100 acre Bailey Tract is a great place for nature photography and viewing wildlife.
