Beach weddings Sanibel Island and Fort Myers Beach
For beach weddings Sanibel Island and Fort Myers beach are great locations to celebrate your special day. Sanibel Island with its abundant Sea Shelling and natural white sand beach is quaint and ensures a romantic and relaxed Honeymoon. We hold mostly smaller weddings at Lighthouse Beach. It is a great location and has many photo opportunities with a beautiful variety of backgrounds. Another option that is great for larger weddings is the Casa Ybel Resort where we can plan the wedding and if desired reception. Cape Coral also has many vacation home rentals with very affordable pricing making it a great alternative to hotels. Here is a link to a vacation home from one of our past couples that showcases the quality that you can expect. Vacation home in Cape Coral.
Sanibel Island is approx. 40 car minutes from Sanibel. Captiva is another great option and has very beautiful beaches for weddings. However we only recommend Captiva if you have booked a vacation home with private beach access that can be used for the wedding. There are not many other public beaches available for weddings and they are often very crowded.
Over 40% of Sanibel Island is wildlife protected and you can find many different birds and animals year round. We have also often seen Dolphins swimming by and the Sea Shelling is fantastic. Water temperatures are pleasant all year long. In the summer months, mosquitoes and noseeums can be a nuisance and bug spray is a must especially before sunset and in the evenings. Here are a few hotels and resorts on the Island: Casa Ybel Resort, Isand Inn, Tween Waters Inn, Sanibel Harbour Marriott and Waterside Inn on the beach.
Fort Myers Beach:
In contrast to Sanibel Island, Fort Myers Beach can be more crowded. Especially during holidays. For beach weddings in Fort Myers Beach we prefer Bowditch Point Park that is less crowded during the week and towards the evening.
Beach permit fees may apply.
