Sanibel is often renowned for it’s beautiful uncrowded beaches, but not many know that Captiva’s beaches are actually even less crowded than Sanibel’s. The water is generally a touch clearer on Captiva compared to Sanibel as well. Captiva house rentals are some of the most high demand rental properties in the United States, making them extremely exclusive and difficult to book.
