Salty air. Powdery white sand. Turquoise waters. Palm fronds rustling in the breeze. Funky shops. Eclectic dining. It’s island time, Captiva style.
Captiva Island is a jewel in the Gulf of Mexico along the coast of Southwest Florida. A narrow barrier island, it is a tropical paradise with homes nestled among the palms, many along the Gulf or bay, and most barely visible from the road. With a handful of unique shops and restaurants in Captiva Village, the vibe is friendly and relaxed, and the pace is slow. Once you get here, you’ll never want to leave the island. And that’s okay. You’ll be able to find plenty of fun things to do.
