Where to stay

A natural haven

The 6,000 acre JN 'Ding' Darling National Wildlife Refuge was named to celebrate Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and pioneer environmentalist Jay Norwood Darling.

The refuge features bird and animal watching spots, walking, bike and canoe trails and a 4-mile scenic drive and guided tours.

The Gulf Breeze Cottages on the Gulf of Mexico in Sanibel offer no-frills, self- catering accommodation that suits the ambience of the island.
