What’s Open for Business on Sanibel Island & Captiva Island

Since Hurricane Ian swiped our islands with a vengeance and up to 12 feet of surge flooding on September 28, 2022, the natural and commercial landscape of Sanibel and Captiva changed drastically.

Not only did the Sanibel Causeway bridges and our beloved Sanibel Lighthouse suffer damage, many hotels, restaurants, stores, and places of business experienced destruction from saltwater inundation and hours of 160 mph wind.

Within days, however, work began to restore the beautiful beach and nature destination the world has come to love. Work has progressed swiftly and optimistically. We may not be perfect. Yet. But we still consider the islands of Sanibel & Captiva their own brand of paradise. Many agree and continue to visit to help support our recovery.
