The bridge hops a few small pieces of land where you can stop and picnic, fish, or relax. The toll is only on the lanes headed to the island and it costs 5 dollars to cross it with a two axle vehicle. It's pretty but again it's basically a bridge.
This beach is not Bowman's but many locals come here to watch the sunset, no paid parking here. Can be a bit rocky to walk in the water, but if you just want to get your feet wet not bad at all.
This is the most beautiful drive and it rivals the 7 Mile bridge to the Florida,Keys. You can stop along the way and simply pull off the road to enjoy the scenery, fish or have a picnic.
We wanted to go kayaking on the blueway, but were really disappointed when we finally got there. There didn't seem to be anything to see, except the mangroves you can see from shore. The marina we stopped at for information, that was listed on the map, didn't even know what the blueway was!
Really beautiful waters - check out the dolphins! The Great Calusa Blueway goes on and on - a real treat for those that wish to paddle through the mangroves. You might also get lucky and spot a manatee! Plenty of bird watching to be done here as well - Bald Eagles, egrets, herons, osprey, etc. We really enjoyed our trip... 更多
I have traveled by boat from Canada to the Keys, and there is no prettier place than the 100 miles that comprise the Great Calusa Blueway. Generally calm waters, abundant wildlife, undeveloped islands and scenic vistas make paddling in this area a delight.
This is the entrance to Sanibel and is absolutely beautiful. We watched the sunset here on a few nights. The fossilized shells are really neat too! We saw more dolphins off of the causeway than anywhere else during our stay!
Although we did really enjoy the scenic drive, it was costly to go onto the island then pay the parking... 更多
We took our own kayaks and kayaked the trail, which is about 1- 1 1/2 long, depending on your kayaking... 更多
