Thank you for reading our first blog. Mia's Beach Escape is a newly listed vacation rental property on Sanibel Island. We purchased this lovely home so we can retire here one day. In the meantime, we visit Sanibel and enjoy the house as much as we can and when we cannot be there, we rent it out so others can also enjoy our little beach paradise.
The first time we visited Sanibel, we fell in love with the Island. We love the low key and laid back feel. As soon as you cross the causeway, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of city life. You truly feel like you've entered a tropical paradise with palm-lined trees and beaches, glorious sunrises and sunsets, and no high rise buildings!
Two thirds of the island is a protected nature preserve. There are no streetlights. Busy intersections are directed by traffic police. The island has over 20 miles of paved bike trails. You will quickly notice that there aren't any chain restaurants on Sanibel. These are some of the things that make Sanibel Island unique.
Sanibel Island has so much to offer. While our favorite pastime at Mia’s Beach Escape to relax and hang out by the pool, here is a list of the top 5 things to do in Sanibel Island.
1. Go to the Beach
