How many of us have sat at work, or various other humdrum responsibilities, and dreamed of having our own personal island that we could sail away to and leave the monotony of modern life behind. While not entirely a private island, this little strip of paradise is about as close as you can get without actually purchasing one. For those seeking to embrace their inner castaway, feel free to check out our North Captiva Vacation Rentals!

This small island spans an impressive 4 miles and has an even more impressive width of roughly a half mile. However, while this might not be the largest island you could visit, its size adds a sense of intimacy that is hard to match. One who decides to take a trip down to this little strip of land will first have to take either a boat or plane as it stands just off of southwestern Florida, adding to the feeling of one joining the ranks of castaways. Upon stepping foot on your new paradise, you’ll be greeted by a warm sun and the smell of salt hugging the inside of your nostrils.
Your New Home

starter kit of paper products and soaps. Some of our Captiva Island vacation rentals also come with a boat!

Spending Your Time
Now that you are settled in to one of our North Captiva Island home rentals and have taken a moment to explore all that your lodgings have to offer, it’s time to decide which of the many activities you might wish to try out first. Despite the island’s small size, it hosts all the usual things one might imagine themselves doing while upon an isolated floating paradise. One could first head down to the nearby beach and stretch out upon the sand and allow the beating sun to bronze the skin, or maybe you and your guests might like to take a swim in the ocean, creating memories to share upon your return. If this is the route you go, make sure to take some time to collect seashells as the island hosts some of the best shelling in the United States!
However, once you have tired of enjoying the sands and ocean currents, perhaps you might like to relax further by grabbing a drink and casting a line to see if any fish are biting. Or, perhaps you and your guests might like to rent out some bikes and explore the Natural Park which stretches over half the island! One could even see about renting a boat and enjoying the rush of wind as you skate upon the ocean waves. However, make sure you do take some time to properly enjoy one of several restaurants that litter the small island. If one is feeling particularly adventurous one might even decide to take a trip to the Gulf of Mexico which is a mere stone toss away. All this ensures that at no point in your vacation will you find yourself struggling to entertain one’s guests or own mind.
Dining Out on Captiva Island
Though Captiva Island is only accessible by boat, once you’re on the island you’ll find you do have options if you’d like to go out for a meal or two! From upscale options like the Old Captiva House, to tried-and-true pub fare at The Mucky Duck Restaurant, you’ll find that you have a varied selection to choose from. For an award-winning eatery, try Doc Ford’s Rum Bar and Grille, which also has a location on neighboring Sanibel Island—there you can sip on local brews and catch up on the latest game.
The island also offers a wide selection of cuisine among local eateries—if you’re in the mood for pizza, you can stop by Captiva Island Pizza, while if you’re craving Mexican flavors you can swing by Cantina Captiva. Even though Captiva is fairly remote, coffee lovers will rejoice, as there is a Starbucks on the island, as well as the local Latte Da Coffee Shop!
