Out and About

Seaside Inn has its own private beach and offers complimentary beach chairs and umbrellas. Sanibel Island is famous for the wide variety of shells found on its beaches, especially shells from the island's many indigenous mollusk species. A fine day could be spent combing the resort's beach and surrounding beaches for interesting specimens.

A heated outdoor pool and a shuffleboard court overlook the Gulf. Complimentary bicycles are available for exploring the island, which boasts 17 miles of bike paths.

Guests receive discounts at the semi-private Dunes Golf and Tennis Club, about 1.5 miles away. The back nine of the Dunes golf course is an Audubon-sanctioned wildlife preserve, where many species of native wildlife can be observed. The club also has seven Har-Tru tennis courts.
